    I was told by a Law Enforcement friend that an agency in California is trying to get Glock to build them a handgun called the 30 S.

    The handgun has a G 30 frame with a G 36 slide. I was told if they agree to make these handguns for the Calif. law enforcement agency, they will go into general production. Would you be interested in purchasing one of these handguns?

    They need to iron out the wrinkles with the 30SF first.

    But to answer your question, no, I would not be interested in purchasing one.

    What does the G36 slide have over the G30 slide? I dunno. Never shot a .45 Glock.

    I would prefer they focus on getting a Gen 4 G30 out.

    I would consider buying one only because I don't like the frame of the g36 as much as the g30 frame. I do however like the size of the g36 slide over the latter. That being said I kinda doubt glock is going to produce a 30S version.

    I don't understand the point. The FRAME is the thickest part of a G30. In fact, my G29 (same as G30) frame is even thicker than my G21SF frame. So, you can thin the slide all you want, but the gun will still have the same overall thickness. Weight would be down slightly, but only slightly. I wouldn't buy one, and I also HIGHLY doubt that Glock is in the business of doing what a single department asks of them. Besides, you can always just buy a G30, then a G36 upper. The G36 upper works just fine on the G30 frame.

    Why don't they just run the G38 and be happy?

    i have one already. if glock were to offer one i'd return my slide to the 36 and sell the 36 and buy the 30s. i don't see any great advantage for a LE application, or even a CC application for the 30/36 hybrid.

    If I had a nickel for every time someone was told by a friend of a colleague of their uncle's cousin's girlfriend's brother that we were going to get the G30/G36 hybrid mass produced...

    ...

    ... I'd have a lot of nickels.

    Currently, the only way to own one of these is to put one together yourself, and I have a feeling that's how it's going to stay for the forseeable future. Call it a hunch.

    I doubt they will make one either. Ironically, it should be a no brainer though. There had been interest in the project. They already make all the parts. It would just be a matter of another SKU and matching the serial numbers (or how about stop stamping the dang serial number on every stupid part altogether :dunno: ).

    Nice fantasy buddy, keep telling yourself that Glock is going to make a new production gun for a po-dunk LEO station in communist California. How about this, get your laws changes in Cali so you can actually carry hi-cap mags...then start talking to Glock about your super-new-gun.

    My, did we wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? Such attitudes are not conducive to polite conversation. BTW, there are some parts of the State that aren't leftist, Communist, Socialist or otherwise, so kindly refrain from lumping us all together. If ignorance is bliss, you must be one happy guy.

    As stated earlier, why would anyone want this hybrid? Also how are you going to fit a narrow slide on the wide base? Move in the rails on the lower frame? Then you are not going to be able to fit in the double stack mag. So what do you have? You have a g36 in current form.

    Why would LE care about how thick the 30's slide is, other than maybe for undercover/concealment duty.

    People put 36 slides on 30 frames now. It's very doable.

    See this. Huge difference in slide width/weight.

    Glock can call it the G66.
