Its a headspace issue and the length is shorter, causes jams, and there were a couple cases of ejector breaking for some reason. Google it.

Here's my experience....A couple years ago I sold a new,never fired HK USP Expert in 45acp to a gentleman over at HKPRO.Right after he got it he started posting and sending me emails about how it was a jammomatic/wouldn't extract etc.We tried to diagnosis the problem the best we could with no luck.I know he was right on the verge of telling me he wanted to send it back to me when he happened to mention that he was shooting 45GAP thru it.We advised him to shoot 45acp thru his 45acp HK USP and we never heard another word from him.

If you had a barrel made, you could shoot both without issue in one gun.

And a custom ejector, But why would you want to? The whole idea for the GAP was slimming down the grip. 1911 fits me fine because of the single stack. G21 doesnt because of double stack. I still shoot it, just not as comfortable. My G38 conceals better, and is best of everything I want.

That's great and for that reason alone there is no need to bash the GAP.

I've had two G19s, a 2nd and 3rd GEN. Neither worked for me, and the third gen pinched my pinky between the mag and frame. The G30 fits me better and I shoot it better. It's great to have options.

If they do enact an AWBII I hope that existing HiCap mags will be safe to own - I have seven of them.

Tragic boating accident would be my guess.
