Glock G22

GLOCK introduced the G22 .40 in 1990 and effectively closed the gap between the heavy .45 Auto, and the internationally proven 9x19. GLOCK was the first manufacturer to make this popular and effective round accessible for law enforcement agencies. Today, police agencies across the U.S., and countless others throughout the world, put their trust in this 15-round pistol.

The GLOCK 22 Gen4, in .40, introduces revolutionary design changes to this model of perfection that the majority of law enforcement across the country put their trust in every day. The Modular Back Strap design lets you instantly customize its grip to adapt to an individual shooter's hand size. The surface of the frame employs the new scientifically designed, real-world-tested, Gen4 rough textured technology. Internally, the new GLOCK dual recoil spring assembly substantially increases the life of the system. A reversible enlarged magazine catch, changeable in seconds, accommodates left or right-handed operators. The G22 Gen4 retains the GLOCK accessory rail for your attachments.

I carried this pistol for many years as a police officer. It never failed me and the only trouble I ever had was the magazine springs got weak from leaving the magazines loaded for 15 years. Only time I emptied the magazine was at the shooting range. It was my backup weapon for 12 years on the SWAT team. The Glock was the easiest transition from carrying a S&W model 66 for many years. My 66 was a little more accurate than the Glock but the extra rounds and the fast reloading made it an easy choice. After I retired from the police department, I up graded my Glock with a new trigger group and replaced the plastic recoil spring assemble with a good quality after market metal guide rod and springs. Accuracy was greatly improved but it was not a safe trigger pull for duty carry. I qualify each year with the same Glock but my old eye's are getting harder to see the sights, but I still hit center mass with a tight group.
