    My LGS got 20 units in this morning and the first G-30S out the door followed me home this afternoon !!!
    Test fire date 1-7-13.
    Pics and range report to follow.

  2. Congrats. I'm interested if the accuracy will be more akin to the phenomenal Glock 30, or the average service pistol accuracy potential of the G36?? Please do keep us posted! May be the UberGlock....
     
  3. What is a 30S? Hopefully not this ridiculous combination of a 36 slide on a 30 body.

    Yes it is and why is it ridiculous? Because it's slide is not thick as a brick?

    Someone at Glock has obviously been reading forums to get this idea. Hopefully they read the threads about the single stack 9mm's as well.

    The 30S just proves that the slide on the G21 and G30 didn't need to be as thick as it is.

    What exactly does a thinner slide mean though

    Exactly what is sounds like. It's not as thick, width wise. Glock 45s have thicker slide then most other guns in the same caliber. When the G36 came out, it's slide was similar to those of the 9mm and 40 glocks.

  9. Exactly! Why not make an elongated G36? A full size single stack .45, it'd be a huge success. That is of course if they got it running right.

    Seriously, pics? The 30s has been my dream. I have wanted to like the 30 but the rediciously thick heavy slide was fail. I sold them both.

    Our Glock rep stopped by the shop on Thursday and I jokingly asked him if he had a slim 9 with him and he said no but I do have a 30S, so he went and brought it in. This was built with a 3rd generation 30SF and a 36 slide. It is clearly stamped so it wasn't just a frankenGlock that had been put together.I'm not certain if they are all going to be the SF frame. He also had a beautiful cut-away Glock that was really awesome to see every operation of the pistol.I'm not sure if I can post pictures from this I-pad but if not I'll post later when I get back to the computer.

    I didn't realize that this picture didn't show the SF designation, I'll look through the rest and see if I have a picture that shows the SF stamp.

    I was told that these were being built on Gen 3 frames, but looking through the 2013 Glock Annual on page 8 they state they are a Gen 4 frame. Aren't all the Gen 4's coming with changeable backstraps? This model does not have that.
