ok tell me about the 45 short ammo ?first one i have seen today, cant seem to find any. i have the longer 45 acp not 45 long as i use it in a pre 70 series, im thinking the 45 short would have less recoil.

The short was made because some countries do not allow civilian possession of military caliber.

Try a .45GAP [glock automatic pistol] a 45acp shortened enough to fit in a 9mm pistols grip. I thought it was a good idea but I’m a .45 guy, it never caught on and with the improvements in 9mm ammo it wasn’t really necessary. It is cute, the same length as a Webley .455. But it won’t work in a .45acp if that’s what your thinking of doing, too short.

As far as I know, Glock was the only one that made pistols in 45 GAP. It was supposed to be the latest and greatest but it it died out pretty quickly. It was a solution to a problem that didn't exist.
The Glock guys I know bailed on them pretty quickly and ammo is tough to find.
