You really couldn't miss the hype that Glock put on for the 2020 Shot Show. I don't know what I was expecting, maybe a Carbine or a new design of some sort. What they came out with is a 10 shot Plain Jane .22 caliber Glock 19 copy. Now it is apparently having design problems in that it won't reliably load the first round from it's magazine. Not cheap either. $359.00 to $400.00. They couldn't design a double column magazine? I am a buying fool when it comes to .22 handguns,but this one has zero appeal to me. Maybe if they fix the quirks and the price drops pretty far, one for the collection.

Just another glock. Thought a few years ago they made a 22 conversion for glock.
Way too many 9mm on the market these days, market flooded with small ones.

Most 9mm glocks feed anything, 45 glock not so good. 22s are iffy in lots of stuff, had a 938-22 that would never fire two shots in a row, sent it back to Sig twice an they never got it any better, down the road it went along with the 938 jam-o- matic.

I've seen guys recently record shooting the 44 on video.
The only function issues I've seen have been with "the usual suspects" for giving troubles in autoloading .22 rim fires.
Now it could be with the first round jamming that they did crank out some defective magazines. I did have that issue with a magazine for the Glock 36 once.

Hmmmm first time I heard about feeding issues.
Where'd you hear that?
You Tube has two .22 Plinkster videos you might want to watch Also reports of two Kaa booms. Owners on the Forum are claiming a lot of malfunctions with all kinds of ammunition. Others are saying "Mine works great!" I'm suspicious enough to wait a year or so. I'm not a Glock fan. I own two. a G21 which I think is a great .45 and a G17 which is Blah for me. Glock's advertising said three years design effort will fire any .22 Factory ammo. Now Customer Service is saying (Apparently, I don't know for sure) that bulk ammunition is not recommended.

Trying to accommodate a USA market and a Global one might be the issue.
Cheap **** ammo will act up in any gun.
Again I've seen videos where the usual cheap **** or poor QC stuff gave troubles.
Imho the general American gun community these days are a bunch of whiney cheap skates that expect firearms to run or perform flawlessly with either the cheapest ammo they can stuff into it or the crappiest optic they buy for it.
God save me from Schlock Talk, BARf.com and YouTube mouth breathing morons.

I shot IPSC for 10 years, met dozens and dozens of shooters with expensive tricked out pistols that failed to work. They all blamed their gunsmith, from talking to these people I got the impression that it was a combination of cheap magazines and buying unknown reloaded ammo at gun shows.

I had to warn my Nephew off that Gun Show stuff. He had a new Bushmaster and he got an empty shell stuck in the chamber. He brought it over and I managed to punch the case out. Split and expanded case neck. I asked where he got the ammo and he said Gun Show. He looked forlorn when I told him to bury the rest of that sh stuff and never buy anything but factory. He was very lucky.
