    So what does everyone think about the Glock 38? Found one at my local LEO firearms dealer for $414.00 and couldn't resist buying it. Any good experiences to share about it? I've never had a .45 and am excited to hit the range soon. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1358626377.639485.jpg
    Bottom right of picture. The others are G26's...

    Have shot one once and looking for a OD model myself.

    I love the way they shoot. Far nicer than the G36 I had. Ammo can be hard to find but most dealers I have asked(which didn't have on their shelves) said they will carry a few boxes for me. Usually not a problem to find ammo online either but most reload.

    My Gen4 19 has been living in the safe ever since I bought my 38. The only gun I carry off duty now is my 38.

    Does it help to have a stronger recoil spring since the stock one is not as strong as my double recoil spring on the G26? It seems a lot easier to lock the slide back on the G38 than others.

    Leave it stock, my Glock 38 has functioned 100% with everything I've fed to it.

    My G38 is the most accurate Glock that I've ever owned and shot. It has the same recoil spring as the G19-G23-G32.

    While I prefer the 39 in GAP, the 38 is a great pistol. You'll enjoy it. They are great shooters.

    I haven't looked yet. However I've seen it at Wally world a few times.
