    NOPE. The rails on the Gen 4 30 will be too wide.

    *edit* I'm not positive, but leaning no. Looking at pics on glocks website it may be possible. Sorry for putting the cart ahead of the horse.

    so how does that work with 30s - orginal glock 30sf frame / slide is a sloppy fit?

    If you include the G36 barrel with the G36 slide, it will fit but I can't vouch for how well it functions on the G30 Gen4 frame. The G30 barrel will definitely not fit in the G36 or G30S slide. The G30 barrel has a larger O.D. (thicker walls) than the G36/G30S barrel.

    so in the 2013 Glock Annual, it says that the Glock 30 S was developed for an "Elite Law Enforcement Unit", does anybody know who Glock is referring to?

    Michael Moore's personal bodyguards, after being embarassed at the airport by having one of his crew carrying an unregistered firearm (this part not satire). He has now decided to abide by the arbitrary 10 round restriction. Michael Moore's entourage will now carry Glock 30s pistols and will inact stricter background checks before hiring his armed mercenaries. Dianne Feinstein has not officially agreed to the same terms but I have an inside source that tells me she currently has an order out for 100 Glock 30s handguns.

    :supergrin:

    Los Angeles Police Department Special Investigation Section (S.I.S.) is what I've read. Mas Ayoob thinks that is a good bet.

    my orginal thought was to just drop my 36 slide (barrel, spring and all) on a 30 gen4 frame.

    a gun show is in town this weekend and hopefully i will know by SAT afternoon...

    Keep us posted, maybe do a range review post. I ended up getting one recently myself, sort of an impulse trade/buy but I'm hoping it rocks! I'm interested in what other people think about it. I wore it IWB all day today in a Galco Kingtuck for my G23 and it felt very natural, a little wider in the frame but it wasn't any heavier and not uncomfortable at all. The 30S conceals nice IMO.
