Question About A G30

I was at the Miami gunshow earlier today and one of the gunshops had an interesting piece. It was a used G30 with its original gen1 tupperware box, including the label, which had the correct serial number (all matched). The serial number began with a "C," but I thought that was strange as the frame was a gen3 for sure. Austrian proof marks. Barrel had been polished and an extended slide release, also polished, threw me off a bit. The slide said "45 Auto," but the label said "45 ACP."

Is this a Frankengun or was it worth the $400 I could've gotten it for? The wife kept telling me to get it, but I have never seen anything like it, so I passed.

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a frankengun, but for $400, I'd jump on it.

I'm looking for a gen2 17. I've been teaching the wife what to look for when she spotted the G30. She knew the gen2 tupperware, so out of curiosity, she asked. I know G30's were introduced in the late 90's, but this thing pointed to the late 80's. Can't figure it out. Not really looking for a .45, but if this thing was a collectable, I probably would've bought it.

BTW, keep getting the autocorrect changing 'gunshow' to 'gunshot.' Sorry.
