    First one I see on the used market for $250 will be mine.

    No threaded barrel?
    No rounds past 10?

    No care

    Is it going to cost more or less than a good G19 .22LR conversion kit?

    Folks that really believe in conversion kits will be the market for this. I have no idea how large that market is.

    My Advantage Arms kit was about $290. It has been flawless. I can also turn my G29 back into a 10mm and my G30 back into a .45.

    With an (unconfirmed) MSRP of $400 I think these will hit the market close to $300.

    If I carried a G19 I would get the complete "trainer" for a few more dollars as opposed to just the conversion kit.

    I also think if these sell well other sizes will be released.

    They already stated threaded barrels will be available too.

    We shall see though.

    I’m curious about the polymer slide.

    And did I miss it or is it NOT cut for optics?

    What I like:

    - a hope for Glock reliability (to be tested with American ammuniton)

    - Safe Action, finally - all previous .22LR pistols have external safeties

    - price is not bad

    What I don't like:

    - a large disconnect between the size and capacity. Ruger SR22 and Browning 1911-22 are significantly smaller, with less grip circumference. Taurus TX22 has 17 rounds. True, target .22 guns are massive, even Victory. But we already have them, we don't need Glock do the same thing. Consider that G19 has 15-round capacity of 9mm, but G44 only 10 of .22 on the same frame. It's absurd.

    - no MOS and no route to one - it changes the mass of the slide too much

    Let's not beat up a rimfire pistol for reliability...22lr platforms can be finicky as many of us know. Give me a threaded barrel and suppressor height sights and I'll run one for fun.
