G36 in a Kramer IWB for a G30?

I have a chance to get a nearly new Kramer IWB # 3 made for a G30 at a very good price. Will my G36 fit in it? I know the frame of the 30 is wider, but I think the slide widths are the same.

Won't work properly. The slide and frame of the G30 are much larger than those of the G36.

Yesterday I found a very good deal on a Galco Royal Guard that is made for a G30,don't have a G30 at this time but could not pass up this deal. I get home and try my G36 in it,works like a champ! Try it,if it doesn't work for You then resell the holster.
If You get it and don't like it ,P.M. me and I will try to buy it from You.

It would not work, the slide on the 30 is wider, 19, 23 is a better fit.

OK, who has tried it?? I make my ownholsters and carried my G30 for quite some time and it was a snug fit to the 30. I have carried my G36 in the same IWB holster now and it has not one issue at all. It's IWB afterall and if your belt is snug so it doesn't sag down, it takes up any and all slack.

I have 5 models I make for the G30 and the all hold my G36 just fine. Were talking a little under a 2/10" difference. G36=1.10" G30=1.28" Leather doesn't notice.

Kydex is a little loose but still won't drop out on 3 different brands I have for OWB.

Like I said in my post above, my G36 works very well in a Galco royal guard that is made for the G30 but that is the only G30 holster I've ever tried it in,YMMV.

Actually the 36 is about a 1/4" longer and 3/16" slimer than the the 30. It may be too loose; that is little or no retention. I've tried putting a 30 in a 36 holster, and it won't work. The 30 and the 36 do not have the same frame or slide. Holsters for a 19 or 23 would be better. It does, however, depend on the style of the holster. Leather molded to a particular model does notice.

The Royal Guard I have, (G19/G23,) has a metal band under the cowhide at the mouth of the holster. One could squeeze that to make a G30 holster conform to the width of the slide on a G36.

I wonder if Glock was aware of this holster problem for the G36?

I agree. I would never use a G30 mold gun to build a holster for a G36. and visa versa. Thats why I have both mold gun models. Now, with that being said, I can't speak for other holster makers. Depending on how close the holster was molded, it may work out ok for IWB holster carry.

Please, don't misunderstand me here. I would never build a holster either without usuing the same gun it is intended for. I actually use the real gun, not blue guns, to mold my holsters to insure accurate transfer of details.

But I also have no issues with throwing a 36 in a 30 holster, especially in an IWB. A molded OWB can do but I would say get the proper molded version also.

As for Glock or any gun maker caring about holster availability, I doubt much sleep is lost over that.
