    finally got to take her to the range today
    and i have to say WOW!!!
    this has to be the least recoiling glock i have ever shot
    less than a 19
    and accurate?? dead on shooting quarter sized groups off hand at 7 yards
    the only draw back is finding my brass even after sweeping the floor prior to shooting. it seemed to throw most of my brass forward of the shooting line so i couldnt retrieve it :crying:
    this one is definately a keeper. again i just wonder why it took me so long to fall into the gap :supergrin:

    Sure it can......but it's not practical.

    You'd have to start with a three pin frame and basically replace everything else.

    Much better to just buy one.

    Yes, you can convert a 3-pin G19 to a G38. All you need is:

    1. A Complete G38 upper
    2. G38 magazines
    3. .45GAP trigger bar with trigger
    4. .45GAP trigger housing with ejector
    5. .45GAP slide stop lever

    A new G38 would cost you less.

    Thanks guys.
    Plan on buying a G19 this week so was just wondering. I do plan to buy a G39 next though. The more i read into GAP and hear of people shooting it and love it, the more i want one. On paper it really is the perfect gun for HD and SD.

    Check out our Bull Dawgs Club here on G/T. It's home for the .45GAP.
