I don`t know about you guys , but I prefer my slide thick .
A thicker slide is safer and have less recoil , less snapping and perhaps more control , in my humble opinion .
I guess that Glock have nothing else to do and they are coming up with some ideas like thinner slides to diversifiy sales .
My G30SF is just perfect . It is a Gen 3 with some mods : XS Big Dot Express night sights , Pierce Grip extensions on all my mags , Glock plug , extended slide release , NY-1 trigger spring and Siderlock trigger safety ... absolutely perfect !

People have been building their 'home brew' model 30S (gen 3) for some time. Glock is only now legitimizing the model.

I am waiting for the Gen 4 Model 30. Hopefully, it will soon arrive.

A thicker slide is safer? Yeah, okay.

Well, if something goes wrong inside the slide , what would you prefer you have had , thinner or thicker slide ?
Believe it or not , things like that happens all the time to weapons .
I was just reading and looking at pics of a CZ-52 with an exploded round ... incredible . The CZ-52 is built like a tank , it is an all steel weapon with a heavy steel slide and the guy walked out without scratch .
To me , personally , if I am given the choice of thinner or thicker slide , I choose thicker . I am not suggesting that the 30S is unsafe . Just my personal opinion
