ok so i know there is alot of G30s threads on here but i had to say my piece... I carry a G30sf for awhile now and have done the G36/G30 hybrid... What annoys me i watched the shot show glock booth vids and they say its easier to "CONCEAL"... HOW? The frame is the same width and well the frame at its widest point and when you carry well it conceals the same IWB... The length of the barrel is the same... SO... how does it conceal better... all that changed was the weight... and honestly does 3 ounces really change dramatically carrying? I have shot the G30s and the recoil is snappier then the G27 not like the soft push back shooter from the G30sf... So you might gain a lighter carry gun but your shooting a snappy gun that lots of people hate with the G27 and well follow up shots is important too and the key of a SD gun... The g30sf follow up shots is amazing cause its such a soft shooter... Honestly they shouldve slimmed the width of the frame a tad bit to match the width of the slide... And that is possible keeping the double stack... Then you can say its the ULTIMATE conceal .45 AND another thing is the barrel is weak and you cant shoot powerful rowland 460,45 super,10mm conversion and well cause you can only use a G36 slide that cant handle the load... All in all its the same concealability... So that said if i would have to get a G30s i would wait for the Gen4 that shouldve been done in that platform in the first place... Wanna kill these ads?
