Buy Glock 22 (40 S&W) online
Glock 22 (40 S&W).The 40 S&W caliber closes the gap between the heavy 45 Auto calibers and the 9 mm Luger service calibers.
GLOCK was the first manufacturer to make the advantages of this balanced caliber accessible to law enforcement agencies.
By applying the Gen4 technology with the Modular back strap design and the reversible magazine catch to this pistol model the user may instantly customize its grip.
Hornady’s .40 S&W ammunition, when loaded with their 180-grain JHP XTP bullet, turned in the best performance.
Velocity ranged from 948 to 972 fps. Expansion was stellate-shaped, with the points averaging .68 caliber and the flats at about .64 caliber. buy glock 22 online
There was no fragmentation, and this bullet will penetrate about 14.2 inches of soft tissue.
Black Hills Ammunition also uses the Hornady 180-grain JHP XTP bullet at a velocity that varies from 855 to 890 fps. However, penetration,
while an excellent 17 to 18.7 inches, is provided at the expense of expansion, which drops to approximately .54 caliber as only the jacket peels back.
Two 155-grain JHP .40 S&W bullets were tested.
Winchester’s Silvertip travels at about 930 fps and expands to about .62 caliber, and penetrates 12.4 to 13 inches with no fragmentation. Hornady’s bullet in this weight performs more erratically. buy glock 22 online
Velocity varies by more than 100 fps (1,044 to 1,146 fps). Expansion is consistent at .62 caliber, but there is noticeable fragmentation of the lead-alloy core all along the wound track, and penetration varies from 10.3 to 13.4 inches.
I believe we would be better served if a 200-grain JHP bullet was developed for the .40 S&W. buy glock 22 online
Until that occurs, 180-grain JHP bullets should be selected, and at present Hornady ammunition provides the best performance in this weight.
We also tested a 170-grain lead-alloy truncated-cone bullet loaded by Accurate Ammunition. The velocity is about 970 fps.
Bullets of this configuration are commonly shoulder-stabilized and will not yaw in the target, nor do they deform. As a consequence, they will invariably over-penetrate.
This one traveled 39 inches before it exited the tissue simulant. Save bullets of this type for punching paper. buy glock 22 online
The amount of velocity lost when you opt for the Model 23 is minimal (no more than 4%) as its barrel is less than a half-inch shorter that the Model 22’s tube.
There is no practical effect whatever on the wound ballistics potential. I prefer the Model 23 as it can be concealed more easily. However, some feel the Model 22 has superior handling characteristics.
There’s already a virtual hailstorm of large-capacity .40 S&W pistols out there. Within the next few years this cartridge may almost entirely replace the 9mm Parabellum as the standard U.S. police service round. Dozens of U.S. buy glock 22 online
law enforcement agencies have already adopted Glock pistols chambered for the .40 S&W cartridge. Anyone casting about for a .40 S&W handgun could do no better than selecting any one of the Glock series. buy glock 22 online
The often neglected bottom line on the Glock series is that they work right out of the box – no customizing, retrofitting, additions or tuning is required before you stuff one in your holster and step out onto the pavement.
