GLOCK 44 vs GLOCK 19 Gen 5
So they let me field strip both the G44 and G19 and I guess in all the excited I forgot which parts with which one. Needless to say I quickly reassembled the GLOCK 44 and GLOCK 19 before I was embarrassed.
The G44 is a blowback pistol similar to the G25 and G28. It does not have a locked breech/slide lockup like other GLOCK pistols.
The size of G44 (top) is similar to the G19 (bottom). The slide width is slightly smaller on the GLOCK 44.
The size of G19 magazine (left) is similar to the G44 (right). The button to load the G44 magazine is easy on the thumb.
The rear of the G44 magazine (top) is ribbed, similar to GLOCK's single stack magazines. It also aids in differentiating the G19 (bottom) from the G44 by touch.
The G44 recoil spring (bottom) is constructed of polymer and uses less resistance than than the G19 recoil spring (bottom).
The GLOCK model 44 disassembles the same way as all other GLOCK pistols.
The GLOCK model 44 slide (top) is constructed of polymer and steel. This was done to give the slide the correct mass to fire the .22 LR round.
The GLOCK model 44 barrel (bottom) is skinny compared to the G19 barrel (top).
