.45 ACP is pronounced forty-five A-C-P. ACP stands for Automatic Colt Pistol, a designation that is used by a number of pistol calibers designed in real life by John Moses Browning. Three such calibers (.32 ACP, .380 ACP and .45 ACP) are featured in the game.
This caliber may also be known as .45 Auto (for Automatic), 11.43x23mm, or simply .45, though this last designation is not recommended, as there are many other chamberings that can be described as .45 caliber. It should also not be confused with .45 Colt.
There are 23 base weapons chambered in this caliber.
- Beretta 8045 Cougar
- Colt M1911A1
- Colt M1917
- FN Herstal FNX-45
- Glock 21
- Glock 30
- Heckler & Koch HK45

- Heckler & Koch USP45
- Hi-Point JHP
- Para Ordnance P-14.45
- SIG Sauer P220
- SIG Sauer P227
- Smith & Wesson Model 625-2
- Star Megastar

.45 ACP can be seen as a shorter version of .460 Rowland; both cartridges have the exact same dimensions other than case length. In turn, this allows certain .460 Rowland firearms to be loaded with .45 ACP, increasing the versatility of these firearms.
There are no base .460 Rowland firearms than can also accept .45 ACP (because there are no .460 Rowland base firearms to begin with, with one special exception listed below). However, it is possible to create such firearms through Maze Customs. Therefore, these general rules apply:
- Any .460 Rowland revolver using moonclips (Redhawk, Minor conversions, wherever applicable) can also fire .45 ACP.
- The Taurus Raging Judge Magnum M513 may act as a .460 Rowland revolver, when loaded with a .460 Rowland/.45 ACP 5-round moon clip. See the weapon's page for more details.
