The lighter slide has changed the recoil impulse. IMO the 30s is snappier to shoot and less accurate.
I've cancelled my order for the 30s and added a second 30 GEN4.
, that's very interesting feedback, thanks for posting your results. Your findings square with a growing consensus among early reviewers of the G30S.
I have a hunch that the G30S will be very popular with new buyers attracted to the G36 or current G36 owners looking for greater mag capacity options, but few G30/G30SF owners will switch entirely. We are upgrading from Gen3 G30SF to G30 Gen4 in our household because we require support for caliber conversions we already own.
