The 40 S&W caliber closes the gap between the .45 Auto calibers and the 9x19 service calibers. The G22 is now available with Gen5 technologies including the nDLC finish, a flared mag-well, the enhanced GLOCK Marksman barrel (GMB) for increased accuracy, and an ambidextrous slide stop lever.
Introducing the Gen5 family which includes 9x19 and .40 S&W models. GLOCK Gen5 pistols are the latest examples of GLOCK'S constant pursuit of perfection. Gen5 pistols feature over 20 design modifications from their Gen4 predecessors, including the GLOCK Marksman Barrel, nDLC finish, ambidextrous slide stop lever, the removal of finger grooves, and a flared mag-well. These changes deliver improved accuracy, durability, performance, control, and flexibility whether you are on the range or in a situation where fractions of a second matter.
• nDLC finish - exclusive to the GLOCK manufacturing process and the Gen5 models at this time. The finish increases protection against corrosion and scratching and improves the ability of the pistol to function in degreased or adverse conditions.
• Flared Mag-well - has a larger funnel for faster, smoother reloads, particularly in high-stress situations where fractions of seconds matter.
• GLOCK Marksman Barrel (GMB) - features a more aggressive polygonal rifling with a target-style crown and tighter chamber specs, which delivers improved accuracy.
• Ambidextrous Slide Stop Lever - offers increased ergonomics for left-hand shooters and shooting with the support hand.
• Removal of the Finger Grooves on the Grip - allows for superior grip ergonomics and improved fit for various size hands.
• Firing Pin Safety and Trigger Spring Enhancements - enable the trigger housing to endure long term durability and result in a smoother trigger pull and improved trigger reset.
• Safe Action® System - safeties disengage sequentially as the trigger is pulled and automatically reengage when the trigger is released.
• Enlarged Floor Plate - makes it easier to pull the magazine free of the pistol if it doesn't fall free during a malfunction or reload.
• Customizable Frame Size - with backstraps in two sizes each one with and without beavertail. The multiple backstrap frame allows the users to change the circumference of the grip to fit their individual hand size.
• Magazine Capacity - depending on caliber and size of the pistol model high capacity magazines are available.
