What is the closest G19-sized .45 that Glock makes?
G30, G30SF, or G30S
Thicker but for length and height the G30 is very similar to the G19.
I think the closest wold be the 30s.
The new G30S is the closest to the G19 in size and weight. In fact loaded there is only a 0.02 ounce difference between them. The G30S will NOT fit in kydex holsters like the fobus paddle and the bladetech razor but it WILL fit in my Galco Kingtuck IWB. The grip is and does feel wider in the holster but it really doesn't affect comfort or conceal- ability.
I'm going to the range in 1 hour to compare it head to head against my G23. Going to see how it shoots. I have yet to see a good range report by anyone yet. This is the closest I found to a real report: http://www.ar15.com/archive/topic.html?b=5&f=13&t=90455 everything else just seems like people talking out of their you know what.
If they would have had a G30 Gen 4 at the shop when I was there I may have went with that instead... I'll admit there is something cool about the cartoonishly wide slide lol. That said with the 30S slide does look a little goofy on the wider frame too. If she shoots well though it'll be a keeper. As I said it rides well in the holster and would be a comfortable carry gun.
What is the difference between a G30s and G30sf?
The g30s is the closest. I held one yesterday.
G30S = compact lower frame, slide dimensions of a G36

The G38 has the EXACT same frame as a Gen 2 & 3 G19. Only the slide is wider like a G30. However, it is a .45 GAP.
Let us not forget the Glock 36.
Very similar in size to a Glock 19.
yup. . .
I dont get why they have not made a g19/23 size exactly in the 45acp.
Not by Glock, but an XD45 Compact (with the 10 round magazine in) is the exact same size as a G19.
(13 round XD45 magazine also shown.)
length of a 45acp is too long for the grip the 38 is about as close as you get but with heavy slide
you can use the same holster as the 19 if you carry a G36
Mdl. 38, .45GAP, same frame size as a 19
Glock 36 even fits in a Glock 19 holster.
