    There is no doubt that the new 30S was undoubtedly the result of someone at Glock actually listening or looking at the general consumer market. There were quite a few folks running hybrid 36/30 pistols and looks like Glock took notice.

    So with that in mind, how about we start with what else we would like to see the big "G" possibly and realistically develop and release.

    Since Glock has now confirmed a thinner slide will in fact work with the 45ACP, I would like to see a 21S at some point. I'm picturing the thinner slide on a 4th gen or SF frame.

    Ideally I would like to see a true 45ACP with the exact dimensions of a G17, even though it would probably be neutered to only 8 or 10 rounds. I could still live with the 21SF/4th gen frame, especially after I work it over with a reduction..:whistling:.

    You are more optimistic than am I. When I heard about it, I was wondering if the Glock 30S was the result of having a bunch of extra slides that had been made but not selling or an effort to shave a couple cents of the cost of a slide based on slightly less metal and a bit lighter shipping weight. But I admit I have been called skeptical before.

    No additional tooling was needed for the 30S. A 21S would require an additional Glock slide.

    Pretty sure they tried that with the G37 and found it needed the extra slide mass to function reliably.
