The GLOCK 38 is the same size as the GLOCK 23, GLOCK 19 and GLOCK 32, but a slightly wider slide. The pistol doesn't feel any wider, most likely due to the expert rounding of the slide at the top and at the bottom where the slide meets the receiver. The slide is also rounded at the front to ease in re-holstering.
The .45 GAP allows slightly better stopping power than the ACP cartridge and in a package with the comfort of the GLOCK 17 and GLOCK 22.
