    Any idea when the Glock 30 Gen 4 will come out. The 21 Gen 4 has been out for a while why not a 30?

    Do yourself a favor and get the gen 3. Already has dual recoil spring

    I would have thought if needed the different sized backstraps was a much more crucial issue than a dual recoil spring.
     
  5. I just don't understand what the big deal is with the Gen4's. Seems to me everyone wants a big bore gun to shoot like a 22 cal. I know that recoil is relative but I expect my 40's and 45's to kick more than my 9's. I don't seem to notice a whole lot of difference. Just buy one and learn how to shoot it to the best you can.

    Not only the MBS but some people also prefer the Gen 4 mag release and grip texture as well.

    I use a vickers mag release and stipple grip so gen 3's work great for me :) only reason I mentioned the dual recoil spring is that is the only real difference that would matter to me between the 3/4

  8. The OP asked when the G30 gen4 will come out, he never said anything about the dual recoil spring (gen3 already has a dual recoil spring by the way) and never made the claim that he wants a big bore gun to shoot like a .22.

    To answer your question I would guess only Glock knows when it will be released.

    I have a gen3 G30sf and will be swapping it out for the gen4 G30 when it is released. I like the grip texture and magazine release better on the gen4 guns. On my gen3 Glocks I have to use grip tape or bicycle innertube on the grip to get it to stick like I want it to. My gen4 G17 is perfect the way it is.

    The Gen 4 has three magazines, rather than the two in Gen 3.
    I like the texture and extended mag release, as well.
    Haven't compared the spring, but if it works, all the better.

    I suppose that I'll get one at some point, but really the only differences would be:

    - MBS
    - larger magazine release
    - perhaps a "." connector
    - RTF4 grip
    - extra magazine with the Gen4 model

    The RSA is already a dual-spring configuration like the other subcompacts...so, I'll stick with my G30SF for the time being.

    All that being said, I don't have a G29 yet, and will be waiting for the Gen4 model to be released :)

    It will probably be end of this year or early next year. Last time they came out with the 21sf model about a year before the 30sf. If I had to guess it will probably be the same formula.
     
  18. I think another reason why people like the Gen 4's so much is because if your a LEFTY you can put the mag release on the right side. I guess people who are oblivious to others woundn't really think about that but that is one of the main reasons why I LOVE the Gen4. I do hope the G30 Gen4 comes out real soon because I want a .45 BAD. HURRY UP GLOCK!!!
