    I have asked this before this forum was created, w/out sucess, and it gives me the chance to ask again.

    If anyone out there has both the Glock 36 and the USPc 45, I was wondering if you compare slide width and if possible if anyone had photos side by side.

    The information on the websites is usually meaningless in that I am interested in IWB confort and website publish overall width, but not slide (in the pants width, so to speak).

    Thx for taking time out to read this post

    The G36 is thinner, but you loose two rounds.
    The USPc is by the way not a .45, I only have a .357.
    The .45 is even bigger!

    45c has longer barrel and thicker and longer grip. Holds 8 instead of 6.

    I've owned both.
    The G36 is MUCH smaller in grip circumference. THe G36 is overall thinner.
    I have small hands- G36 fits beautifully while I was never able to properly grip the USP 45c. By the way- if you're looking for a comparable grip to the G36 in the HK line, consider the P2000 (Not availible in 45 yet but the 40 feels great)

    MarcDw, great pics. Do you have any showing the USPc 45 and the G36 seen side by side from behind (backstrap shot), to compare width. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
