NIB G30 Gen4:
I field stripped it to inspect before firing, but did not clean any factory oils or gunk out. (I usually do...)
I was using American Eagle 230gr FMJ (100 rounds)
and Tula 230gr (150 rounds)
and PMC Bronze 230gr (50 rounds JHP and 50 rounds FMJ)
I also installed my new Streamlight TLR-3 after the first 30 rounds, and kept it installed the entire range session.
Also installed two Pierce magazine floorplate extensions. These fit perfectly and provided a much better grip feel than that goofy floorplate that Glock insists on using.
After the first 150 rounds or so, I installed the beavertail backstrap that Glock now provides with certain guns.
AWESOME feel and better control with the beavertail installed! How long has Glock been providing these things?
(my G30 came with 4 backstraps: two regular and two beavertail)
of any kind.
Drama-free and reliable performance!
From 10 yds to 30 yds, the G30 was super accurate, and kept on hitting what I was aiming at. Of course, I got a bit trigger happy at times, and sprayed and prayed, just because....
What didn't I like
Brass was raining down on my jungle boonie hat (which collected in nicely for reloading) for many shots, but mostly the ejection pattern was where it should be. As things loosened up, it seemed to improve?
The goofy magazine plate that Glock provides with the G30 gives my pinkie finger a "pinch" while firing...fixed that by installing Pierce extensions (although the Pierce extensions could use a slight breaking of the sharp edges....)
After using a Dan Wesson 1911 lately....the serrated trigger seemed to give my trigger finger a workout.
What I loved
lightweight, accurate, and just plain badazz with 45 ACP/Streamlight/beavertail/Pierce extensions
Nightstand duty began last night, and will continue for as long as I own this gun!
and with lil' bro G26
