Thread: Glock 44 range reports

  1. #91
    I put a Bold .200 x .140 front sight on my 44 and it regulates well. My 44 was running good, and then couldn’t get through a magazine without a stoppage, using CCI 40 round nose mini mags. I ran a bore snake through it, lubed it, and now it is running great again.

    Relative to the ‘feel’ of a Gen 4 or Gen 5 Glock 19, how close would you say the Glock 44 trigger press is?

    Maybe on a 1 (nothing like a 19) to 10 (can’t tell the difference) scale?

    Obviously this is not a question on recoil. Trying to get an idea of how useful a G44 would be as a “live fire training aid”, I guess I would call it.

    Thanks!
    The G44 trigger is identical but 6-6.5lbs in weight.

    I find the lighter weight of the 44 makes the trigger feel heavier than a 19.

    I can’t say much bad about this gun. I consider it one of the best firearm purchases I have ever made. It has had zero stoppages of any kind in the final 1000 rounds of this test. It’s a keeper.

    I installed a .205” tall Dawson fiber up front. With that and the rear clicked up two clicks from full low it is tip of front sight at 25 yards and drive the dot at 5 yards with Minimags.

    The lack of recoil and ability to shoot a lot of round in a session is allowing me to see subtleties in my technique that are usually masked by recoil. I think it it making me a better shooter. I wish I had 50 mags for it.

    I think the reliability has been stellar and it way exceeded my expectations in this regard.

    My minus connector G19 has a 4# trigger.
    G44 has a 6# trigger.

    The G44 trigger doesn’t just feel heavier, it is heavier.

    Do you have a ballpark on the round count it took to plug it up?

    I weighed the G44, here it is in comparison to a few other guns:

    LCR .22 15.7oz loaded with 8x40 grain
    LCR .38 16.2oz loaded with 5x158 grain
    G44 .22 16.2oz loaded with 11 Velocitors
    G42 16.3oz loaded with 7x90 grain
    S&W 642 17.1 oz Airweight 5x.38 158gr

    Unloaded weight is identical to a LCR .22.

    I am not saying a .22 is a best choice for a defensive handgun. However, the G44 is by far the most shootable of any of the guns in its weight class. Given its reliability in my hands I would recommend it for a weaker, or recoil sensitive shooter provided they vet it.

    Something over 1,000 rounds. Took just two passes of a bore snake and a dab of lube and it was back in action.

    I got a 44 on Thursday, had a Steel Challenge match this morning but before it started I ran 20 rounds of CCI Mini mags through it. The first mag showed me what would happen if you don't load it right. Fixing that, the gun ran fine with a 6:00 hold. After the match I shot 55 more rounds of Mini mags without issue. Shot 100 rounds of CCI SV without issue, 100 rounds of CCI Blazer and 100 rounds of Federal bulk patch 36 grain Wal-Mart ammo. The Federal had one dud that had a good indention, not a light strike. Then a buddy tried Remington Golden bullets and had one round fail to feed, probably not loaded right, the other 99 fed fine.

    So that's 475 rounds and so far it's as reliable as any other 22 I've ever had. Feed it what it likes and it'll shoot.

    We also shot a 10" plate at 50 yards offhand that made everyone smile. It's just so easy to shoot, I love this thing.

    I found this holster this afternoon in a box of old holsters. I got it years ago from Bill Rogers, and believe it was part of an initial run he did for a military unit. It fits a direct milled 17 for an RMR, with the rear sight in front of the optic, but not the MOS slides I have.
