    Hello All,

    I am VERY interested in the G38. I have been doing research and have found different comments regarding the width of the GAPs, with both the slide and receiver. mentions they are the same size as the 23 and 19, but people say the 38 is thicker/wider. I am looking for a definitive answer as I have not found and GAPs here to see for myself. Thanks.

    The frame is the same; the slide is a little wider.

    When Glock gives specs on width, the size given is the widest point on the pistol, which happens to be the frame. The G38 slide is the same width as a G30 slide, meaning slightly wider than a G19 slide.
