    Just picked up a Glock 30 SF on Thursday. I have about 300 rounds throught it. I notice that after each 25 rounds or so, I get a blue-black residue on the muzzle end of the slide and frame. I assume this is not a big deal but it is different than my experience with my other 6 Glocks. Since this is my first .45 caliber, I thought I would conslut with Forum members that have more experience. I am shooting American Eagle 230gr FMJ.

    Wipe it off. Try some rubbing alcohol on a paper towel. All of mine get that residue. It's completely normal.

    It's a short barrel so a lot of powder is still burning upon exit. It's common on handguns anyway but the 30 does get that way quick. Put a rag over it comes right off, not a problem.

    yup all is fine and normal, mine does the same thing and it comes clean with a simple wipe of a rag,... the cheap ammo really does a number on the top of the slide and on the rail.... last time I was at the range mine was covered with all that residue when I was done...

    No problem. All normal. I do notice it more on my shorter barreled .45's. Wipes right off.

    Same thing here--looks like I just dunked the muzzle end into a bag of charcoal dust when I'm done.

    Everything comes off just fine with the regular cleaning regimen, and I don't use anything special. Just stuff you can buy anywhere (Hoppes, CLP, M-Pro7)

    Same here, wipes right off, especially with a little CLP on a rag.

    My G30SF is the worst for it as well.
