    Is this possible? What is needed. Found a good deal on Glock 38, BrandNew for $475.00 + tax. Thanks for anyinfo given.

    No this is not possible.... convert a GAP up to a ACP? You are limited to cartridge OAL. The ACP is WAY TOO LONG to fit into a GAP magazine.
    You need a magazine to feed it right?

    Howdy,

    I understand the cartridges are not the same, but changing the barrel and using .45ACP mags,would this work? I have seen onLone Wolf site, you can buy barrels, and with the mags, you can use a different caliber, like changing a .40S&W to a 9MM. Swap out the barrel and use different mags.

    No it will not work. The GAP magazine is based on the G17/22 mags. The ACP magazine is WAY TOO LONG
