    Today, FedEx dropped off my new G30 Gen4 with night sights direct from Glock in Georgia. A blue label pistol, test cartridge dated July 5th, 2012, and three mags.

    This was a replacement for an old G21SF with picatinny rail and ambidextrous magazine release.

    I just returned from a trip to my local indoor range. Ran the following ammo through it without any problems. I did not even bother to clean it first.

    50 rounds Federal 230gr FMJ from Walmart
    50 rounds Winchester White Box 230gr FMJ from Walmart
    20 rounds Hornady TAP 230gr JHP
    20 rounds Winchester Ranger T 230gr JHP

    I also tested generation 3 and generation 4 magazines. No problems observed. The new mags were really hard to load to 10 rounds without using the loading tool. This is not an issue, just very strong mag springs, a good thing.

    Glock's customer service is a :perfect10:

    USSOCOM, that's very exciting news! Thanks for the range report.

    As a very early owner of the Gen4 G30 45ACP, providing some answers to a few questions will interest others if you feel like giving more information:

    1. What is the trigger bar number marking on the Gen4 G30? Is it 4256-1 or 4256-1- or something else? (see example photo)
    2. What is the ejector number marking? Is it 8196-2 or something else? (see example photo)
    3. Does the Recoil Spring Assembly have a slotted outer spring cup (a dual recoil spring is assumed) or is the outer spring cup a solid tube? (see example photo)
    4. What are the numbers marked on the end flange of the RSA guide rod? (see example photo)
    5. Did the Gen4 G30 come from the factory with the "•" connector installed?
    6. Does your Gen4 G30 have a lanyard hole at the base of the pistol grip?
    Thanks in advance for any information you care to provide.

    What is the trigger bar number marking on the Gen4 G30? Is it 4256-1 or 4256-1- or something else? (see example photo)

    The trigger bar is marked 4256-1. I swapped this out with a G21 smooth trigger face with the same number on the assembly 4256-1

    What is the ejector number marking? Is it 8196-2 or something else? (see example photo)

    Ejector is 8196-2.

    Does the Recoil Spring Assembly have a slotted outer spring cup (a dual recoil spring is assumed) or is the outer spring cup a solid tube? (see example photo)

    RSA has the slotted outer spring cup and it is a dual recoil spring assembly.

    What are the numbers marked on the end flange of the RSA guide rod? (see example photo)

    End flange on the RSA is marked "0 1 9 "


    Did the Gen4 G30 come from the factory with the "•" connector installed?

    Yes, the connector is marked with the "•" I swapped it out for a Ghost "-" connector.

    Does your Gen4 G30 have a lanyard hole at the base of the pistol grip?

    Yes, it has a lanyard hole at the base of the grip.
