But I did run across a G44(22LR) ... first one I’ve seen ... it looked like a Glock!



A friend bought one. I have not shot it, but it was having some ammo sensitivity when we were all out shooting. I will say getting rounds out of the mag manually is a bit of a pain.

Maybe you should carry that P238 for a duty weapon, sounds reasonable.. Big Grin

But seriously, could you have opted for a G17 instead of the G19?
The full grip and higher capacity would make it a more suitable duty weapon..


Thanks..

I tried to buy a Glock today...

I've been wanting a Gen 4 G23 or G22 for a while now, but not really a new one. I found out from some one a gun shop had those in stock.

Drove the 50 miles to the store, which I've bought from in the past. Turns out they had only G22 police trade in's, the salesman picked through the 15 or so G22's and found 1 Gen 4 in very good condition. One minor grip scuff area, 4-mags , box, no extra backstraps, night sights, for $399.

I filled out the required paperwork at 1:30 PM..
At 4:30 PM it still had not been approved. I needed to leave at 4:30, and not wait until the store closed at 6 PM. As the store and Sig Forum has stated, background checks just take so much longer now. In my years of background checks, this is the first time its happened to me.

I left without purchasing the pistol today, will go back next week to get it.

Did I get a good deal?

I'd say you did pretty good. Order a set of backstraps for $25 or so and you're off and running.

The one I chose had the smaller backstrap installed. I don't really need any of them , because, the bare Gen 4 grip fits my small hands much better than any previous Generation. It's what sold me on Gen 4/5's, seems the bare grip was made smaller.


In the future, I'll be buying a 357 Sig barrel for it. Forgot to mention, the $399 did not include Va sales tax, $2 Va VSP check.

The store also had some H&K USP 40 cal Compacts and Full Size for sale @ I think, $499?, but seemed much more worn. I would not be swayed, however ! LOL

Sounds like you're good to go, then.

It was, they phased out the SF (short frame) models and incorporated that change in the dimensions into the standard Gen 4 models, including the calibers and frame sizes that didn't have it previously. Prior to that, it was just the .45 and 10mm Glocks that had it as an option. A good move on their part.
