    .45GAP

    SInce I have a G30sf..and the fun shop near me has plenty of 45gap.

    Can I use that ammo? Or is it for a spacific GLOCK.

    What differences is it to a norm .45acp in terms of performance....they the same except the casing?

    Thanks.

    I'd assume not, 45gap is significantly shorter in length thus wouldnt fit properly in the mag. I got the same problem, just when I get a 45acp, the whole world switches too and its november 08 all over again.

    The .45gap was designed specifically to address the "problem" that Glock had with their .45acp firearms being too large for most people. There were many complaints about how large the grip on the Glock21 and Glock30 were. So Glock made the .45gap and made a smaller firearm to go with it. It turned out to be unpopular so Glock made the G21sf and G30sf, thus the world doesn't need .45gap. It's the same ballistics in a shorter case.

    No!!!! Do not shoot .45 GAP in .45 ACP firearms. Big headspace difference.

    Yeah no GAP in that thing. You wouldn't want a GAP anyway. Same ballistics as the .45 ACP, but more "poppy" than any .40 I've ever fired and still low-cap. It is an effective round, but I see no future for it anyway.
