    I wonder when it will come out? Maybe a big PD will order it or something and get the ball rolling.

    At dawsonville a Glock rep told me that a PD in California (IIRC) did put an order in for the 30/36 hybrid dubbed the Glock 30S

    Scotty Banks shot my G36 frame with the G30 slide and really liked it. The heavier slide tames the snappiness.

    Why would Glock make this a factory offering, when they can sell 2 guns to every nimrod wanting to make his own "Hybrid" 30/36 ?

    The hybrid idea just screws up a perfectly good G30

    I find it very strange this combination works.
    I do like the idea though...

    ...or sell neither to the people wanting the 36 slide over a 30 body?

    At least they are listening; hopefully we can get a single stack 45/10mm option.:whistling:hint-hint-wink-wink-nudge-nudge

    I have disappointing news for you. FBI testing has shown the 12mm GAP cartridge to be too powerful in recoil for many of its agents. They are, however, experimenting with a reduced power version of that cartridge, commonly referred to as "FBI-lite-the-sequel". If that load is found to be useable, it will be marketed under the brand name ".48S&W". The Glock 52 model, shooting this cartridge, will hit the market twenty three minutes later, and S&W will again look like klutzes.

    Seems like S&W has bigger ears!

    Last I heard was that the G30s was sitting with the ATF for their blessing, but unless they can make up a real good argument for it being just a slight tweak to the G30 it probably won't be on the Cali Roster unless they add a mag disconnect.
