Default 22 magnum

Do any aftermarket suppliers offer a kit to turn a Glock into a 22 mag ?

Only 22 Lr that I know of.

Glock seems to only be interested in the military, police, & ccw sales primarily. They have never seemed that interested in the field use of their guns. Although some do use them for hunting, especially the 10mm.

Shame really it would most likely be like when Ruger first offered the 22 pistol back in the 40s

First year Ruger standard auto pistol was 1949. It had the red roster emblem on the grip. When Strum, Rutgers pardener died all suceding Rutgers had a black Ruger emblem. I once owned a red roster 22 auto. But like lots of others it slipped away in some long forgotten trade.

I have never wrapped my mind around why a 22 magnum would efficiently burn the powder
of a 22 magnum when the 22 lr hi velocity powder cannot be burned efficiently.
O heard that is how Gil Hiberds range burned down, the years of un burned powder collected
in the gravel floor and was one day ignited.
We tried it at our gun club about that time, shooting hi vel on one position, standard on the next, swept both positions , took it outside and ignited it. The hi vel position burned from one side of the shovel to the other, the standard velocity position dust only gave a spark or two.
best wishes

I would love to get my hands on one of those PMR-30s but here in the unsafe state they are illegal.

In a handgun the advantage is not as much increased velocity as it is you can but heavier bullets with faster burn rates for short barreled guns.

In a 22 mag rifle you can buy the federal 50 gr HP bullet load that works on free range hogs and deer, where legal, like Thor’s hammer. We head shoot big hogs with that gun & load and it’s very effective. Of course you must place your shots.
