ACP stand for Automatic Colt Pistol
.45 ACP means Automatic Colt Pistol. It IS .45 Auto.
You can fire a .45 ACP cartridge through a .45 ACP pistol - and only a .45 ACP pistol. The various .45 cartridges (.45 ACP, .45 Long Colt, .45 GAP, etc.) are not interchangeable with each other.

Automatic Colt Pistol as in 45 ACP.

No. The 45 ACP (which means 45 Auto) cannot use the .45 GAP or the .45 Magnum.
ACP stands for Automatic Colt Pistol. It is used to differentiate two bullets of the same caliber when one is for a pistol and one is for a revolver. For instance, .45 Colt is for a revolver, and .45 ACP is for a pistol. Other than the .45 inch measurement, the two have nothing in common and are not interchangeable; the .45 ACP cannot be used in a revolver chambered for .45 Colt and vice versa. The cartridge length and capacity are just two of the factors that make each different from the other.
Caliber .45 Automatic Colt Pistol.
Automatic Colt Pistol. Colt invented the .45 Auto and thus had the right to name it.
'ACP' means Automatic Colt Pistol. A 1911, for example, would chamber a .45 ACP cartridge.

The .45 ACP--which stands for AUTOMATIC COLT PISTOL is used in semiautomatic pistols. The .45 Colt is used in revolvers.
the ACP in any gun cartridge means Colt Auto Pistol
Answer The Colt .45 caliber automatic pistol was accepted as the standard side arm of the US Army and became identified as the Model 1911 Pistol. The bullet developed for use in this new design of automatic pistol was called the .45 ACP or the .45 Automatic Colt Pistol cartridge. It stands for "Automatic Colt Pistol" because it was adopted for the Colt 1911 only by the US army.You get many variants the most prolific being the .45 GAP for glock handguns.It's patented I believe.
No. The .45 Automatic Colt Pistol (ACP) cartridge is longer the the .45 Glock Automatic Pistol (GAP) cartridge. Since they headspace on the MOUTH of the cartridge case, they cannot be interchanged.
.45 ACP means auto cartridge pistol ( I believe they spelled it pistole though). The .45 auto just means it is an autoloading pistol unlike the revolver style pistol.
It's the Luger .45 ACP pistol.
Depends on which .45- 45 Colt, 45 ACP, 45 Magnum, 45-70, and which bullet, and what it is fired from. If you mean the .45 ACP fired by a 1911A1 pistol, velocity varies from 830 FPS up to about 1020 fps. Slow, fat, but gets the job done.
Actually, the cartridges are .45 ACP (automatic Colt Pistol) and .45 Colt (the cowboy era revolver cartridge. There is not really a Colt 45 Long. Can a revolver shoot both? Some can- they are chambered for the Colt .45 -but to shoot .45 ACP they need a "half moon clip"- a strip of metal that holds 3 of the shorter .45 ACP cartridges. 2 of those fill a 6 shot revolver. The PISTOL (not revolver) that shoots the .45 ACP cannot shoot the .45 Colt- no groove for the extractor to pull a fired cartridge out of the chamber, and it is too long.
ACP and auto are used to say the same thing. Automatic Colt Pistol.
Nope. Matter of fact, you can't even load it. The .45 Automatic Colt Pistol (ACP) cartridge is longer than the .45 Glock Automatic Pistol cartridge (GAP). And the model 37 IS in .45 GAP. Both rounds headspace off the case MOUTH- the .45 ACP is too long for the slide to go into battery (close the action). And, with the exception of some revolvers, you cannot shoot .45 GAP in an .45 ACP firearm.
Yes- IF IT IS THE CORECT CARTRIDGE. .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol) may also be known as .45 Auto. It is NOT the same cartridge as .45 GAP (Glock Auto Pistol) or .45 Colt (revolver cartridge).
The 250 is a double stack .45 ACP pistol. It has a DAO trigger, however.
A few hundred to a few thousand depending on the usuals.
