    Picked up a A G44 22lr on 2/14/2020, so it was time to start a thread in the Glock forum.

    I hope to get my chores done today so I can to the range this weekend.

    Installed the thinner beavertail on the grip.

    Field stripped the pistol and oiled the rails.

    Loaded up some CCI Blazers to see how they do. I have always had good luck with Blazer in 22lr semi auto handguns that were finicky, such as my GSG 1911-22.

    Time will tell. 2020-02-15 05.51.22.jpg 2020-02-15 05.49.13.jpg

    Interesting gun. I saw the MSRP on their website. Do you mind telling me what the street price on these is? Looks like a nice training gun!

    $359 before tax seems to be the going rate and what I paid. Our sales tax is 8.5%.

    CCI Blazers 40 grain, never an issue, a little dirty; but, very reliable. As I said ealier in the thread, I shot .22LR Remington Target ammo 40 grain and not an issue. Glock 44 chewed them up. Might try the Thunderbolt next run.

    First 50 rounds, Blazer ammo, not concerned with accuracy, just function. No ftf, no stove pipes, just 100 flawless.

    This gun performs like a Glock, but then again it is a Glock.

    150 rounds of CCI Blazer - functioned flawlessly
    50 rounds of Remington Thunderbolt - three fail to eject
    165 rounds of Winchester bulk in white box - one snap, reload and rerun and bang
    120 rounds American Eagle - one snap, reload and rerun and bang
    50 rounds of Armscor - one stovepipe
    35 rounds of Federal Champion (blue box) one fail to eject

    570 rounds, 5 fail to eject, 2 clicks, but when re-run they went bang.

    About the same as my Ruger 22/45, much less trouble than my GSG 1911-22.

    Should get better with another 1000 or so down the pipe.

    If you like Glocks, get one. If you like Tauri, get a TX22.

    The G44 is only available with 10 round mags, while the TX22 can be had with either 10 or 16 round mags. Since I insisted on the no manual safety model TX22, mine came with 10 rounders because that is all his distributor had in stock. I added a pair 16 rounders that my LGS had on the rack.

    So today I took both of my new peashooters to the range.

    I had pre-loaded all four of my TX22 mags and both G44 mags with Blazer 40 grain before going to the range. Both guns functioned perfectly, this was the G44's second outing, but the maiden voyage for the TX22.

    I then put away the 16 round mags for the Taurus.

    Next, I opened a box of Federal 36 grain HP in the 525 bulk pack. I proceeded to load two mags for each pistol. This was not intended to be an accuracy test, only a function test. I shot two mags through each pistol and reloaded. I continued to shoot all four mags and reload all four mags until I had burned through the entire package of 525 rounds.

    I had zero malfunctions, no FTF, no FTE, no stovepipes, no misfires, etc. with either pistol, absolutely flawless function from both guns.

    I continued my test with a 333 pack of Winchester 36 grain HP ammo with identical results, 100% flawless function with both guns.

    G44 or TX22, either should enable you to have a nice session at the range.

    Ordered and installed fiber optic front sight from Dawson Precision for my G44.

    Need to get to the range again.

    Really impressed with my G44. Have used Aquila, Winchester, and CCI ammo with no issues! G44 Left Side View.jpg

    I will avoid Armscor 22 in the future, neither my G44 nor my TX 22 care much for it.

    Thanks for the tread on the G44. I have been looking for a replacement for my Walther Colt 22 Lr. I have been looking at the G44 and did not trust the regular YouTube hacks, I found your comments, and use of different ammo very informative. Include the accuracy, show some pics of targets, cans, or what ever you shoot at. Or at least your estimate of how it's accuracy is. That may be all it take for my decision.

    ProMag has introduced 18 round mags for the G44. I ordered a pair @$14.99 from Gun Mag Warehouse.

    I hope to get out and shoot some this weekend.

    Thanks for the great review.
    Currently my only .22 is a Beretta 21a that only functions with CCI mini-mags.
    I'm thinking that I might rethink my pledge to never get a Glock.
