    Came in today and shot over 200 flawless rounds of cheap Wally World ammo and 50 of my carry Gold dot 250 grn.HP. Very accurate and ejections were at the 4 o'clock position through out the session.

    The Gen 3 30S had an "S" after the 30, on the slide. Why doesn't the Gen 4?

    30, 30SF, Gen 4 30, Gen 3 30S.

    Is that correct?

    The 30S has a slide that is reduced in size compared to the other model 30 Glocks. The Gen4 30SF still has the original Model 30-sized slide.

    Technically speaking, there isn't a Gen4 G30SF. The G30SF is Gen3 only and marked with "SF" on the right side of the frame forward of the slide lock. The recently announced G30S pistol bears the SF mark of the Gen3 G30SF frame too. However, the OP's new pistol, the Gen4 G30 is marked with "MBS" (Modular Back Strap) in that location on the frame, as are all other Gen4 pistols.

    The Gen4 G30, without a back strap adapter installed, has essentially the same grip dimensions as the Gen3 G30SF. The OP is excused for the title of this thread due to his excited state, having just received one of the finest 45ACP pistols available. :)

    Congratulations colbucky!

    colbucky, may I ask a favor please? The next time you have the slide removed from your Gen4 G30, please check the number on the trigger bar and post it in your thread (see photo for location). I'm curious if the number is 4256-1 or 4256-1- or 4256-2. The reason I ask is because GT member Noponer bought a new G30S recently and the trigger bar number in his pistol is 4256-2 and I'd never before heard about a -2 variant.

  17. Why is yours upstairs? It should be gently wrapped in the softest of blankets, nestled lovingly in the crook of your arm where you can gaze upon its beauty and sheer deadliness.

    The G30S has a narrow G36 slide on a modified G30 frame.
