"If you're gonna bring a gun, baby, you gotta bring enough gun. Forty caliber."
Hank Schrader[src]

The Glock 22 is a pistol manufactured by Glock. It is derived from the Glock 17, but chambered for the larger .40 S&W round. It uses a modified slide, frame, .40 S&W barrel and magazine but is otherwise near identical in looks to the Glock 17 and is available with 10, 15, or 17 round magazines. One notable feature of the Glock 22, and indeed many modern .40 S&W pistols, is the ability to change the caliber to .357 SIG with a simple barrel swap. This is possible due to the similar operating pressures of both rounds, and the fact that the .357 Sig is based on a .40 S&W case, necked down to accept .355 inch bullets.
