    Congrats on the new piece. My 30SF is becoming my new favorite shooter (currently my 26).

    Thanks very much for checking the trigger bar number and posting.

    The Glock Parts List for Armorers FRM-72-26/Rev 59/1.24.13 lists two relevant entries for the 45ACP/10mm Trigger with trigger bar:
    1. Part No. SP 04417, Trigger with trigger bar - G20-G20SF-G20Gen4-G21-G21SF-G21Gen4 (new part - marked 4256-2, with smooth trigger)
    2. Part No. 1194, Trigger with trigger bar - G29-G29SF-G29Gen4-G30-G30SF -G30Gen4 (new part - marked 4256-1- with grooved trigger)
    This is perplexing to me. Your pistol obviously has the grooved trigger as expected for a subcompact model, but the trigger bar marking doesn't match the Glock Parts List. Not to worry, who cares so long as your pistol functions flawlessly. I think I'll phone Glock, Inc. and ask them about this just to clear up my confusion.

    Love the pictures.

    I'm on the look out for the G30 Gen 4 or I'll wait until the G30s gen 4 comes out(not sure why they released a gen 3 version).

    Keep us posted on more range testing!

    A few questions from a .45 n00b, I've been thinking about a 30 variant and was a bit confused.

    Does the 3rd gen 30 or 30sf have the accessory rail like the 4th gen does?

    What's the deal with the 30s? putting a 36 slide on a regular 30 frame, what's the point of that?

    Has anybody had any issues with the 36? I heard about problems with early ones. Any personal experience?

    I have been trying to compare all the G30 variants (including 36) but am not sure which one would be best for me. I have large hands, they all seem to fit pretty good, but I haven't fired any .45 Glock except a full size 21

    Sorry to highjack this thread, but it seems to have 30 fans paying attention.

    The 30s is a 36 slide on an sf frame if im not mistaken.

    Yes the Gen 3 guns have rails.

    Guys have been putting 36 slides on 30 frames for years. It's the bst of both worlds. 10+1 capacity, but with a thinner, lighter slide for carry.

    No personal G36 experience, but I hear they carry great but don't shoot as soft as a G30. It's the 6+1 capacity that turns me off of the 36.

    IMHO you'd probably like a G30 SF or a Gen4 30. Both have a slimmer grip and aren't so chunky. The real magic of the 30 is how soft and accurate it shoots due to the heavy slide, dual recoil springs and thick back strap. You lose a lot of that if you compromise on a G36.

    Regarding the G30 accessory rail, the Gen3 G30 standard frame pistols manufactured before about June, 2005 do not have an accessory rail. The Gen3 G30 pistols built after that time, with serial number prefix HGM and later, have the rail. All Gen3 G30SF pistols have the rail since they were first introduced in early 2008.

    I believe the info at the link in my signature line below will provide some helpful information to compare and contrast models of the Glock 45ACP pistols.

    Thanks for the link, that pretty much answered all my questions, and even a few I hadn't thought of yet. Now I just need to find a Gen3 30 or 30sf. I'm not totally sold on the Gen4's yet, but if I find one at a bargain I would give it a try.

    I have had my G30SF for a week today and Love it. I also have the G36 so I can switch slides and have the G30S if I care to. Glocks here in the Fort Worth, Texas area are real scarce right now, I found this one just after it came in and grabbed it, paid about $50 too much but it made me happy so that is all that counts.
    I can also use my G21 mags in it so no need to buy extra mags.
