The Glock 22 now comes with an accessory mounting system, which is integral with the front of the pistol's polymer frame.
Our shooters liked the way the pistol sat in the hand. The shape of the frame allowed the pistol to sit down low in the shooting hand, which put the hand in close proximity to the axis of the bore. Consequently, controlling muzzle climb was not a problem. The kick generated during recoil was average for a .40 S&W pistol. The grip was reasonably comfortable, and its serrations afforded a secure grasp.
Field stripping this Glock is quick and easy. Start by ejecting the magazine and ensuring the chamber is empty. Pointing the gun in a safe direction, pull the trigger to uncock the internal striker. Retract the slide about 1/8 inch, then pull down on both sides of the slide lock lever, located on the frame above and in front of the trigger, with the thumb and index finger of the same hand. Push the slide assembly forward and off the frame. Remove the captive recoil assembly from the slide, then withdraw the barrel. Reverse these steps to reassemble.
