    It's a very short video, using the dovetail red dot mount.

    In no means a torture test, but he functioned 9 rounds out of 10 with the additional weight, which surprised the hell out of me because of aforementioned weight on the slide issues from earlier in this thread

    This guy gets all the failure types here. If I were gonna try it I'd go with a Shield since I can't think of a lighter one.

    From my experience with heavier iron sights, I don’t want to spend money to test it.

    Exactly. If you could find different springs I might think it could be done.

    A lighter spring would help to allow a heavier slide assembly to recoil back, but at a loss of spring pressure to completely feed the new round. The spring rate on the G44 is very similar if not identical to the rate of a G19 spring.

    Historically, full cycling slide 22s, have reliability issues that exceed what I have seen out of my G44s.

    I know it is a pretty delicate balance.
