One of the most talked-about weapons at SHOT show for 2020 was without a doubt the G44. The G44 (Glock 44, chambered in .22lr) has been a significant topic of conversation in the gun community since it was released in December — some of it good, some not so much. This isn’t new to a new Glock anymore than it is to any other new weapon, however, so we’ll be withholding judgment until we see how the platform holds up to extended use.
In the meantime, here is a collection of Glock 44 notes, reviews, and videos for your edifucation.*
