  1. So even before the frenzy of panic buying these G30 9 round mag was hard to get since they discontinued making them... But why they are awesome with and without a pinky extension an ultimate CCW setup...

    I have one mag that i dont need... I would like to trade it for maybe 2 9mm mags for the G30 9 round mag... You think its fair or you think im not being fair?

    I understand if it was a G30 10 round mag that is everywhere then the trade wouldnt be fair but these 9 round mags you cant find anywhere even before the craziness...

    So am i fair or not fair... Thanks for honest opinions...

  2. Not fair. Glockpolishing on Ebay has them for around $38.00 shipped. You won't find a 9mm mag on the bay for that price. Cheapest is around $50
     

  3. Why not just put a 20/21 baseplate on the 10-round 30 mag??
     
  4. It has the pinky extension on it also...
     
  5. Your right just saw it on there...
     
  6. What does?

    If you put a 21 baseplate on a 30 10-round mag, would it not make the mag fit flush, and give you 9 rounds?

    I'm not saying it'll work, because I haven't actually tried, but it seems like it would make sense... The extension on the 10-round 30 mag seems to be just like any of the other extensions out there, but it's just shaped to be a pinky extension.
     
  7. No u can't make it a 9 round mag the mag is to long and the baseplate is actually flush on the 10 rounder even though it looks like an extension...

    Me neither, I could be, may be, sometimes am, but I dont think a G-30 ten rounder can be made into a nine rounder or vis versa with simple base plate changes.The mag bases are different for their respective base plates to fit.

    I bought a bunch of 9 and 10 rds G-30 mags, and dont own a .45.

    Wanting a G-30s though!

    The pictures below illustrate the difference between the G30 10-rnd and 9-rnd mags. The factory 9-rnd mag is the only way to have a flush fit mag for the G30.
