I just don't understand why a slide width of 1/10 of an inch more than the 30s can make much difference when the rest of the gun is still wide.

glock2740, I love that grip reduction. Where do I get it and how much. Then I want a good adjustable rear sight and a hybred, leather kydex iwb left hand holster and I'm good. I have the same grip ext pg30. I love them, much better than those funky smooth ones that come stock. O gotta have that grip reduction.

1canvas, where are you getting that dimension of 1/10 an inch. That sounds low to me. I know the figures on glock.com are messed up so if somebody has the width dimension of a 30, 30sf and a 30s please give them to us so we can know for sure. I saw hickok45 put a std 30 and a 30s slide side by side and it sure looked like more than 100/thousanths.

I love my G30. Carried one for a number of years. Cant seem to bring myself to sell her... she has my initials in the serial number DRE####

Soft shooting with large capacity... hard to beat a CCW that is compact enough for edc and have 9+ rounds of .45 ACP.

I'll measure mine.

I'm getting 1.122 on the G30sf slide width with my Mitutoyo dial caliper.

After several months looking for a 30sf or gen 4 I found a used gen 2.5 yesterday. Price too good to pass. Now to shoot it and see if a grip reduction is in my future!

Mr 30s Elephant, Why do you call it an elephant? It's alot smaller than my 30sf. I would like to trade top ends with someone that wants the full size top end. It has less than 50 rounds std ball fired through it. Or I would just buy 30s complete upper, slide barrel and all other parts. I would trade a S&W 439 in perfect shape just to get the slim slide top end.

1canvas, thanks for that measurement. Now we just need someone to give us a 30s measurement from a caliper not from the glock sight info. Thanks.

Just bought a Gen4 G30, which will assume nightstand duty with a Streamlight TLR-3 mounted.

Thinking about nightstand duty: I want the trigger covered, but difficult to find an in-stock holster that handles mounted light on a G30.......

I thought of the MIC holster, which only covers the triggerguard, but looking at pics....won't fit with a mounted light.

So...I ordered a Remora, which offers an option for mounted lights.....Hopefully this will work out.....although with the G30 and a TLR3....the light sticks out past the muzzle. Not sure if Remora knows how to actually account for this, but will soon find out.
I don't need it to be an excellent fit for nightstand duty, just keep the trigger covered and allow for easy removal from holster.

Pics and range report to follow (next weekend)

I use a "trigger plug" I got from Brownells - I keep my G21 loaded with one in the pipe and the wife knows it - she also knows to keep her trigger finger indexed on the receiver. The plug is called 'Saf-T-Blok' - got mine thru Brownells - it friction fits (adjustable) between the trigger and frame and pops out with finger pressure as you present the weapon...I like it for my nightstand, but wouldn't use it in a holster (redundancy)...I have it there as an insurance against an ND - but training & practice are paramount!!!

I've had my Glock 30 for about five years now. It has night sights, 3.5 lb. trigger bar, extended mag release, and an extended slide lock. I love this gun. I have never had a malfunction with it and it shoots more accurately than I can anymore. Since I bought my Glock 27 the 30 is no longer my EDC gun; stays loaded in my night stand.

Lol....i don't think i have big hands. I did try the small backstrap and it just didn't feel right. The large beavertail feels better.... Added the limbsaver and it was a match made in heaven. The targets don't lie.
