Glock 30s FTRB issues

I took my new Glock 30s to the range today and had many FTRB I'm bummed out because I love the way it shoots. I've seen that a lot of the 30SF were having this issue and this has the same frame. Anyone know exactly what the fix for this is?

Lol. Definitely not the case I have a 1911 and have had two XDm 45 that never had this issue. I got rid of the XDm's because I like the trigger on the Glock's much better. Just want to get this thing working right.

Lol indeed. You are probably right. Some people are always so adamant that it's the shooter.

Clean and lube that new G30S. Put some decent ammo in it and blast away. Also try another magazine.

Update: I was having failure to feed issues not ftrb. It wasn't returning to battery but wasn't going in the chamber at all. I left for a week on Vaca and left the magazines fully loaded. Since I have returned I have had two range sessions with 200 rounds total (100 of those rounds with Tula Ammo) and it has been flawless. I think the magazines were just a little tight. Love this gun!

Good to hear you're running ok. Sometimes things just need a little time to work themselves out. My 30SF has been flawless so far, but I need to shoot it more. Weather, remodeling the kitchen, blah, blah. No time to go to the range. Weather supposed to be better next week, and kitchen finished. Can't get here too soon.......

My 30SF worked fine out of the box with 230 gr. Blazer and Gold Dots but needed to be broken in before using some other stuff like Federal Champion. Shooting a few +P Buffalo Bore really helped loosen things up. It still won't feed light handloads or even some standard loaded 200 gr. lead SWCs. I had the same issues with a G36, although I did not shoot any BB +Ps out of it. Personally, I think people should expect to have to break them in a little before having a panic attack.

That's the fix for most all of the complaints related to "breaking in" a new Glock....

Happy to read the problem resolved itself by feeding the new 30S a high ammo diet. The weak, cheaper ammo may have been the cause for the FTRB. I have experienced the same problem using Fiocchi until firing a few hundred rds, afterwards no issues.

Good to hear yours seems to have settled in and is working well now.
