Glock G38 45 GAP

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

The G38 was a good fit for our hands, and 45 GAP produces a lot of power in a short barrel. Pros on a budget should have a hard time passing up on this combination.

The slide release was snag free but easier to engage than the original design. We didn't really need to add an extended magazine release. It stuck out too much when added to the slim frame of the Model 38. It didn't cause the magazine to be released unintentionally, but the standard size button is a better choice.
Glock does not have a custom shop. Nor does the company charge extra for services such as "dehorning" the slide. This means the leading edge of the slide was already streamlined for a smooth draw and easy re-holstering.
