I have a 37 and a 39 on order. I spoke with Glock in GA last week when placing my order for the 39. I was told that the 39 was not "in house" yet and it could be as long as 2 months before I get it.

Got the G38 a few day's ago. Had Operator night sight's installed the next day. Comp-Tac will be here in a couple of day's. Yesterday I polished all of the ignition component's and installed a 3.5# connector. I like this gun a lot, but I also like to shoot a lot.
If I can find a source of pratice ammo at a decent price I will keep this gun. If not, I'm afraid she may just...?

Hey all, I want to show the non believers that the 45 GAP is catching on. Check out my post above(the unofficial G38 serial thumber thread) and send me a PM with the prefix of your serial number(if you don't want the whole serial number on GT) and the case collection date. I will put you on the list. Just let me know between what serial numbers I should put your info in, if you don't want your serial number known.

For instance HCD001

HCD0015

HCD100

Let me know if it goes between 001 and 015

or between 015 and 100

Where did you get the G39 from?

Farmer
05-03-2005, 20:41
I am a FFL dealer and I had 3 on backorder from Zanders Sports for a while. They called me this morning and said the got them in if I still wanted them. I noticed on the Dealer pages of there web site it said that they had 13 in stock. If you have a dealer that deals with them I would ask them to order you one. Now I am just waiting for the G17L's to come in.

I like the Glock compacks and sub-compacks and now I will have one

of each in .45 GAP.


Someone always said, "How Great It Is!"


Also I have a Glock 35 (.40 s&w) with a 5 1/2" barrel by Barsto with three ports on the top whick I use for duty.

The model 38 Glock is a better shooter.

Old tooth brush, wooden q-tips, factory supplied brush and stick, patches, your favorite gun cleaner, and your favorite lube. compressed air makes the whole cleaning thing a lot easier too.

Had a 37 for about 2 weeks, didn't like it. Traded it in on a 38 and it is great. Shot about 200 rounds so far, various factory loads and reloads. Not alot of reloading data around but doing ok using VV N320 powder and 200-230 grain bullets.

Farmer
07-09-2005, 16:16
Resistance is futile. So far I like the G39 best of all the GAP's but I haven't got a chance to fire many rnds out of my G38 yet. I shot my G39 and G19 at GSSF in Oregon and I shot better times with the G39 than the G19. I had just gotten the G39 and only fired 200 rnds out of it before the match while I have had the G19 for longer than that and fired a lot more rnds out of it.

First Glock, first post. Bought a G38 about a week ago and lovin it. Already contemplating my next model. Maybe something a little cheaper to shoot like a 9mm.

I am relatively new to shooting and can now see myself getting into reloading. Looks like the bug has already got me!

My only OD green Glock is my 37, also. I will not try to convince you that you did a bad thing.

I just added a 38 to my collection. 200 rounds through it so far and I love it. I do believe I found my new winter time carry gun.

BigFatDog,

Just bought my first Glock too, a G38.

I'm curious to know how accurate your G38 is right out of the box. I borrowed a friend's G27 before I bought mine and I was amazed at how well I shot with it. I was shooting a couple inches high or low but I seemed to be right on center. This was from about 30 feet.

With my G38, I'm consistantly shooting about 10 to 12 inches to the left from the same distance. Mine was in the display case when I bought it and assume other people handled it and maybe the rear sight got bumped although there are no signs of it. I bought a rear sight adjustment tool but ran out of ammo before I had good opportunity to sight it in.

Or if anyone tell me, is it normal to have to sight it in when new?

I'm sure DannyR can address the issue of having to sight in, but my hunch is that yes, it will take a little time and patience on your part to get it to your liking. Sounds like you need it, too: 10-12 inches tells me the sights are pretty out of whack.

Have a SA XD 45 GAP LE. Does that count? Love it to pieces! It is very accurate right out of the box! I have some once fired brass available if anyone re-loads and is interested. Let me know. I would like 15 re-loads for every 50 brass I send you.

Durring break in, I was within 2-3 inchs of aim at that distance from ready stance. Groups weren't very tight though. The pistol took some getting use to, eventually my aim and groups tightened up. Try a bench rest of some sort to limit operator error.

Couldn't resist the urge of trying a 45 GAP, so I bought a G37 (along with a G17L). The G37 is far more accurate than I thought possible! Great pistol.

I've been eyeing the .45 GAP since it's debut and was waiting for the sub-compact model to come out, and once it did I just had to put the money aside to pay for it.

I finally ordered my Glock 38 .45 GAP last Wens. and I can't wait to get it! I couldn't find one in stock anywhere so I had to do an order, and on top of that they required me to put the entire amount of the gun up front- Not a big deal to me since this is a reputable dealer who is giving me a great price on the gun, but it stings leaving the dealership without my money and with no gun! :(

I live in the tampa area and I must say that I have not been able to find plinking ammo anywhere (went to 3 different gun stores) and the selection of Self Defense ammo in stock is horrible. I was shocked to see that one of the dealers had 20 rd boxes of .45 gap Self Defense loads in stock for $20/box! WTF? I bought a few boxes of Federal Hydra-shock 185 grain 20rds/box for 12.99 at another dealer.

I hope I'm wrong but finding ammo may be a challenge, but I don't care... I love the smaller frame glocks and the .45 so this is the perfect gun for me.

I'll write my review once I get it and compare it to my Para P13 limited and other glocks to let eveyone know how I like it.

Also, does anyone know where to buy .45 ranger 230 Grain 50rd boxes ONLINE?

man0ica
08-26-2005, 17:03
Been able to find Winchester White Box here in Key Largo for $14 a box, not too bad. Since I already reload .45 ACP, reloading .45 G.A.P. is a snap, same powder, dies and bullets. Have already found a homemade load that my G37 really likes. I can reload a box of 50 185gr JFP for about $3.50 a box.

You'll like your G38, great shootin' pistols.

Have you tried Natchez Shooting Supplies or Cabela's?

One in my pocket.

Wow G A P all the way.

I use other Glocks for training classes like the 19's and 26.

Hey there Glockers!

I just got my second G37. I hope to use this one for duty as a service pistol provided the department I end up serving in will allow it. I am not sure if they are allowed yet on duty, but if not another toy for me and I will get a Glock that is accepted.

Like my prior G37, this one also acts funny when trying to load 10 rounds in the mag. I have cleaned and oiled the new mags and hope this prob will go away as I practice with it at the range.

Proven reliability and solid build quality. I love this piece and it's nice to see the Glock name continue to do what it does best.

Maybe a G38 in the future. I use a Bersa Thunder .380 too. Great little carry piece.

Til next time.
Cheers!:cool:

golfgod,

When shooting any semi-auto handgun, it is a good idea not to cross your thumb behind the slide. With a good stable grip, both of your thumbs should be clear of the rear of the slide and both of them should be pointed forward. Check out this link.

golfgod -

Which model LaserMax for the G39? Based on what I've been able to find out, it appears that the correct model # is LMS-1171. I believe this model was put into production by LaserMax just this week. Do you already have one? If so, how's it working out for you?

The 39 is way cool...A tad heavy for concealment, but it is a sweet shooter and surprising accurate up to 30 yds. Also, I heartily recommend the CorBon DPX, solid copper 45 gap loads. They're kinda hard to find, but are a damn nice load.

Picked up the G-38 and the G-23 today. It is interesting that they gave the test casings in the factory box. As I have been a tool and die maker for years it was quite interesting to take the GLOCK apart. I can see many ways to smooth out many actions. Mostly there grind marks do not flow with the direction of thr components travel. Many burrs etc. These will most likely wear off but will cause similar wear to the slide. I will do some documenting as well as some diamond polishing.

Why is that interesting? Every Glock comes that way. I don't think they are function test cases. They are for the communist state or two that collect them for ballistic fingerprinting. Glock doesn't know which guns are going where so they just include them with all their guns.

I can attest to that, here in the Peoples Republic of Maryland, a spent shell casing is required for the state. They've spent millions on the technology and have only arrested 1 guy this way, and that was accidental.

Also we've had the idiotic "internal gun locks required" law since 2001, if it weren't for Omega locks, I couldn't even buy glocks now.

I bought a G37. I like it, but I'm beginning to wonder if it isn't a white elephant. Popularity or the lack of it can make or break a cartridge, regardless of whatever benefits it might have. I find my G37 to be accurate and reliable, but enough of the "it's a solution looking for a problem" b.s. from people who haven't shot it, and don't want anyone to buy it, can have a pretty remarkable effect on a product's popularity. I'm not even really sure what deep-seated ire people have against the .45 GAP. I mean, it's not like the cartridge is anemic or inaccurate. And the few guns chambered for it have apparently performed well. I don't really care if it settles into a market niche along the lines of the .357 Sig(which oddly enough, no one complained about, but it's basically a .40 necked down to 9mm, so you get none of the advantages of either.) As long as it looks like I can get ammo to feed the gun, I'll be happy, but I'm not sure that's gonna happen. Despite its merits, we'll probably be lucky if this cartridge doesn't become the .32 magnum.

I don't think you have to worry about the ammo disappearing or becoming scarce. Here in Maryland you can buy it at most gun shops and more and more its available online. Also, the brass is readily available for reloading.

We don't have it in walmart or anything like that around here, but I have found it in plentiful supply at several gun shops. The only negative I heard was from an ammo both at the gun show. The guy said it was crap and wouldn't last long, but I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon.

c_w_cunningham
03-09-2006, 09:28
I hope not.

I've seen it in Walmarts in the past but I've been to three Walmarts in three cities in two days, and either they've never heard of it, or they have had it but they're out. It's too bad the round isn't more popular, because I think the cartridge and the guns GLOCK came out with for it are a technical success.(I suspect that the XDs and the little 1911s are fine too.)
Like I said before, my G37 is reliable, accurate, ergonomic, etc. I think most folks that dislike the .45 GAP and the guns for it, hate it for what it isn't, rather than appreciate it for what it is. I mean if we apply the tired, old "it's a solution looking for a problem" saying across the board, there are lots of cartridges, like the .40 S&W and .357 SIG and .38 Super and 10MM that we should abandon. Seriously, what does the 10MM do that a .44 Magnum can't? After looking at some ballistics info, it seems to me that some of the .45ACP +P loads approach 10MM territory, and .45 Super might be even better(if I could find a ballistics chart). Then we can just have pistols chambered in 9mm Parabellum or .45ACP and revolvers chambered in .357 Magnum and .44 Magnum and that should simplify things quite a bit, if everyone's goal should really be to get rid of "solutions in search of problems".

P.S.

Don't get me wrong, I like the .40 S&W and the 9mm Parabellum and the .45 ACP and have at least one firearm in each, and I don't really have any animosity to the .357 SIG or .38 Super or 10MM, I'm just applying the argument.

P.P.S

In fact, if you vigorously apply the argument to centerfire calibers, we would end up with one handgun cartridge that we would use for everything. Maybe a .43 caliber or 10.9mm .

I ordered it on May 18th-of interest, the pistol was test-fired on July 3rd. The out-the-door cost, including tax and ffl fees, (and Glock night sights), was $558. The blue label box contained 3 8-round magazines.

I have tried several powders with the GAP and I have come to prefer Hodgdon Titegroup for the loads I use for practice. I prefer to load down just a bit since I can and I enjoy a little less recoil and blast compared to factory ammo. I have a log of what I have loaded but I must confess the stuff I have shot has not been chronographed, I only recently purchased a chrono so I guess now the real fun can begin. The load I like for general purpose is 4.6 to 4.8gr of Titegroup with a 185gr jacketed bullet. This is listed on the Hodgdon website as being close to maximum with a Hornady XTP 185gr., I am using plated 185gr. so the bullets are a little softer than the XTPs. This load is accurate and it does have less recoil and blast compared to factory 185gr ammo, I think it could be loaded up to about .5gr more without any problems but I need to chronograph the stuff if I want to push the upper limits. For safety I want to declare that I only recommend using data that is known to be accurate when reloading, so what I have printed here is in accordance with known factory load data http://www.hodgdon.com/data/pistol/45glockauto.php
Thanks for allowing me to participate on this forum.

I've mostly used Ramshot True Blue with .45 GAP. The Lyman Pistol and Revolver Handbook (3rd Edition) is one of the first to contain GAP data across numerous powders and Lyman noted that Ramshot, in particular, performed well with their GAP loads. I'm fairly pleased with it, though it is a bit dirty. Being a ball powder, it meters very well in my Dillon measure.

I normally use Rainier Ballistics copper-plated bullets, favoring the 200 grain flatpoint. Loading the 200 grain bullet over 6.7 grains (0.2 above Lyman's starting load) and a 230 grain bullet over 6.0 grains (again, 0.2 grains over start) gives very good accuracy and moderate recoil.

I plan to try a few other powders in the future, but reloading is a means to an end, rather than a hobby, for me--I'd rather find something that produces good accuracy with no more powder than is necessary to achieve a given power floor, and then just keep cranking rounds out using that load (I Reload to Shoot, not the other way around! :cool: ) Any information about successful GAP loads that others care to share will be greatly appreciated.

Gary,

Great information, thank you. How reliable has the feeding been with the Ranier 200 grain flat points? What overall length are you seating the bullet to?

Thanks,

George

Once I got the crimp right (I was trying yo use minimal crimp to avoid over-working the brass -- it took a couple of itertions to get it just tight enough), they have been 100% reliable through several thousand rounds. My OAL is approximately 1.08 inches.

My local gun shop told me 5-7 weeks, I called Glock and found out its gonna be closer to 10-12 weeks.

This thread IS a "big tent" and I apologize! An XD in .45 GAP qualifies for inclusion -- but it wasn't obvious that your XD was a GAP model. In my defense, the new XD .45 ACP has been "used" by some individuals on GlockTalk to argue that the .45 GAP is unnecessary, so I tend to go into fight mode when I see "XD" mentioned in a GAP thread.

Let's start over: welcome and tell us more about your XD .45 GAP (barrel length, how you like it, what ammo you are using, etc).:welcome:

I should have been more specific. Sorry about that. Anyway, it's an XD LE 4" barrel version. I love this gun. As far as the GAP haters, I'm not sure what the motivation is. It's really not hard to see the benefits of the GAP.

I run 230gr Hydra-shocks, and 200gr Gold Dots right now. Working on some Ranger-T's, and Federal HST's.

I picked up a Model 38 Glock this weekend and did my first testing of it this am. I love it. I did however have my first malfuction ever with a Glock, it was a fail to feed but it could have been me. I was doing 4 shot drills from the holster and could have loosened my grip. It was with the 4th shot in that particular evolution. Other then that, everything worked great. It fed Silvertips and Gold dots just fine. I was using all 185 gr bullets. I only put about 175 rounds through it. I'll be adding the G39 and G37 to my inventory soon.

I picked up my new G39 the other day and finally got to shoot it for the first time yesterday...I love it! I had never seen or held one when I ordered it but come from a family of Glock fans. The first 75 rounds gave me no trouble as expected and were all it took to feel comfortable with it.

I'm new here and have really enjoyed all your posts helping me to decide on this one over the G30 and all other choices. It's been challenging to find practice ammo at reasonable prices but think the size and weight advantage will allow it to travel with me more often and be worth the trouble if I need it! Thanks to all of you for helping a newbie!

The funny thing is that he's already asking me to get a G37 or G38 for a big brother to keep him company!

I won the new member gun at the GSSF shoot and I chose the G37 to use as a CCW gun. Shooting it I felt like I was hammering nails in target.
I'm also looking for reloading information for my gap. Like can you use the lee carbon 45acp factory crimper resizer on it and the best loads, bullets and primers. After all the ammo aint cheep and a freind sold me bunches of brass and ammo.
