Springfield .45gap 3" barrel?

Big caliber and very small in size.

I like the gap.

More companies need to make them.

.45acp is old and for new people without an acp gun I

recomend the gap.

What say you?

I do not see the point of a GAP 1911. I mean come on, seriously:rofl:

At least in a Glock it serves a purpose albeit a trivial one.

:faint::faint::faint: the reason why GLOCK came up with GAP is because their 45ACP frames are too bulky for some people. 1911 platform doesnt need a diet

Shorter overall cartridge length may improve reliability.

Baby 1911's can be finicky feeders.

Springfield did make a .45GAP in 3". it was the Defender, which was discontinued. IIRC it was because the frame couldn't take the long term stress from the .45GAP
the idea behind the Defender lives on as the EMP.

I believe Para made a micro 45GAP at one point as well. :dunno:

I liked the way my G37 shot, but I wanted a real 1911 in ACP. So, buying GAP and ACP ammo got old quick, buying 9, .223, and 12-gauge too... So, traded GAP for a G21 and still 'kind of' miss the GAP. Plus, I really like Black Hills and they don't make GAP... May end up getting a G39 for deep carry since my G19 is a little too big and would love a bigger bullet for daily concealed carry. GAP really hasn't caught on, but with police adopting it, it will be with us for a little bit. Still see lots of GAP at the store compared to ACP. Good thing I reload and shop online! I still have 340rds of GAP I never used... How dare I! Almost pulled the bullets to reload with, but I'm saving the GAP ammo for a rainy day... Nearly left the boxes at my range and put a sign that read, "Free to good home". Maybe trade for some other ammo or mags? Poor GAP...
