I accidentally bought .45 GAP rounds instead of .45 ACP rounds for my 1911. I never even heard of this round. Apparently its mean glock auto pistol. I thought i might just try to load a mag with a round and see if it would chamber it. Of course my 1911 did. I didnt fire it thought. Would it cycle safely? I dont see it being a problem since its a shortened .45. But then the chamber is built for a longer round.. Has to be less pressure. Well, i dont know, maybe its more... Would my 1911 shoot them? Or am i just stupid asking a question i already know - DONT FIRE A ROUND IN A GUN THATS NOT MADE FOR THE GUN.

the shell casing is thicker due to higher pressure powder so it might be a bad idea.
However if you decide to try this video tape it for us

DO NOT DO THAT! It's not the same as a .38 in a .357, or even .44 spl in a 44mag. Find somewon with a .45gap and give them the ammo and replace it with .45 ACP...Hog
