    My new to me Gen3 G30SF has a slight side to side wiggle in the frame to slide fit. My G19 has no wiggle, but my G30SF is tighter than some Sigs and 1911s I've handled. Seems to not affect performance and have not seen any excessive wear on the slide rails. It was a used police trade-in. Good thing is, everything is tight on it. No barrel wiggle or anything like that.

    You think I'm good to go? I appreciate any similar stories from owners or experts that know more than would be great.

    You're good. My 2005 Gen3 G19 wiggles (with full mag out, tried to do it with a full mag in and it didn't wiggle). Still a great gun, great accuracy, great reliability.

    My G21 does too.

    Ok. Yeah mine wiggles ever so slightly with a full mag in and without one.

    All my pistol slides wiggle... G19, G21, Beretta 92FS, Springfield Loaded 1911, Kel-Tec P3AT.

    1911 is the worst one. I've never owned a 'tight' gun. I may send the Springer in for slide-to-frame fitting, but my 1911 is 100% reliable and accurate enough for me (within 6in at 25yds, 1.5in at 7yds). Rather have 1.5in at 25 though... My Springers just a range toy/bowling pin match gun.
