    Quick answer: No.
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    G36, 30 and 21 are chambered for .45 ACP . . . The G37, 38 and 39 are chambered for .45 GAP.
    So, Yes you can shoot .45 ACP in a G36 but NOT 45 GAP..
