Went window shopping today at Cabela's, the nearest gun outlet I have to me.

Looked at a Glock 23, 27, 26, and 19 (gen 4). Didn't have my 22 on me, so I had to look at the 22 as well, for comparison's sake (all new).

Also looked at a Walther PPK .380, and a couple of Springfields (XD and XDm, both in 9mm).

I left my 22 and money at home, so as not to jump at anything.:cool:

I really wish I could get a G25 here.

It is odd, because for whatever reason I have issues with the mag release on the 26 or 27. I think it as to do with the mag just nudging the palm of my hand.

What I really wanted to accomplish was to look at the size difference between a G22 and a 19 or 23. Not a huge difference, but it is there.

So I came home empty handed...

why? :)

the glock 25 is the same size as the more powerful glock 19 9mm, plus it does not operate with a locked breach, so it kicks more than the 9mm.

they are the same as other Glock mechanisms, with the exception that they are a kind of straight "Blow Back". This is accomplished in the .380 models in the same way that Glocks and other similar type pistols are converted for Movie/Blank usage.

The forward shoulder of the top of the barrel, which normally locks into the slide is angled rather then 90 degrees


glock could certainly alter it to get the import points to sell it here, but there's just no market in america for such a gun.

it's popular in countries that outlaw military calibers like 9mm, and that's the only market it was designed for.

A few years ago I carried a 17 iwb everyday while working in a drug task force. Usually 12 hour shifts, sometimes 16+ hours. Carry a 19 now and notice a big difference. Never carried a 26, i'm sure that would be easier but not ready to go there yet. I like the hi-cap of the 19.

Yeah, I didn't realize the size was the same. I went back to Glock's site and read this, then looked at the measurements. I thought maybe it would be similar in size to a PPK, which does seem to be small.

I want one because I can't have one. :)

Also, while it may be the same size as the G19, the GLOCK website also shows that the G19 and the G38 are exactly the same size in every dimension and this just isn't the case. While the frame is the same size, the slide is wider. Just ask my holsters. LOL

this is not the case with .380 glocks. :)

the GAP models have the large frame slide's on the small frame models. the slide's length is shortened and the edges of the slides are beveled. in other words, your GAP model 38 basically has shortened and beveled glock 20 slide that retains the same width thickness.

GAP slides do indeed protruded more from the side of the frames than all other small frame glocks, as they are thicker in width, and thus will not share all holsters. however, .380 glocks share the exact outer dimensions of their 9mm brothers.
