    ... is their a G38 slide assembly to be found anywhere? I had a G37, but traded it for a G21. I've had a G19 for five years now, and a small stash of GAP still, would love to carry a smaller .45 without paying 500-ish for new. I'd be happy paying $200-ish for slide assembly + trigger housing with correct ejector. Am I SOL?

    Might want to make a couple of phone calls to Glock and Lone Wolf.

    By the time you purchase a G38 upper (if you can find one), buy a few magazines, buy a GAP ejector and a GAP slide stop lever, you might be better off with a new G38. Of course, you know that your G19 would have to have a 3-pin frame.

    Right, my G19s a three pin frame. With G37s going for $379, that is a good deal, but I need at minimum a G38 as far as size. Sucks that the GAP didn't catch on. I may call Glock just to see if possible to buy complete upper. It would be nice, but isn't the end of the world if not. Oh, I still have two 10rd GAP mags I didn't trade in. I may end up going back to GAP one way or another. Kind of mad at myself, all the pistols I bought are full size (Beretta 92, Glock 37, Glock 21, Springfield 1911) and I sold my sub compact Beretta 9000 for a compact Glock 19. G19 is perfect size to me. Not too big, not too small. .45 would be better, of course

    Did not catch on? Five State Police Agencies (NY, PA, SC, GA and FL have adopted it.

    I'm glad it's actually being adopted, but slowly. I'm mostly comparing it to .40S&W as far as popularity. GAP is still young and I really like it, but I'm looking for more ammunition options (comparing to .45ACP), manufacturers chambering GAP (besides Glock), and caliber acceptance from haters as far as my 'catching on' term. I guess I'm expecting more out of it. Now that I'm GAP pistol free, I kick myself when there's no 9, .45, .380, .40 on shelves and primers are backordered, and there are six dust covered boxes of GAP on a very empty shelf at all my local gunshops... At my favorite gunshop, four traded in G37s on sale in the case that never move after months and months too
