    They won't make a Gen 4 G30 SF. They will probably make a Gen 4 G30 as with the new interchangeable backstraps you to customize the grip size.
     


  3. i don't know what could make it better, mine is perfect just as it is:wavey:
     
  4. I am thinking about buying a new G30, and was wondering what any of you that own one or owned one thought about them...pros & cons. It'll be for concealed carry...I currently carry a 1911.
    Thanks

    I bought a like new 30 SF with nite sites , and it is a heck of agun. My son and I both carry these at times. Very accurate-it is my second 30-I let one go some time ago but am back to the best gun in 45ACP for carry IMHO. Dont know if the Gen 4 is out yet but I am a happy camper. The G 30 SF is hard to beat.....great weapon!

    OK but I was thinking of a gen 4 Glock30-
    anyhow the 30 I bought was stolen and I bought another Gen 3 to replace it. Great guns.

    I have had my G30sf for about 2 months now and I couldn't be happier. It has happily eaten wwb, fed champion,blazer brass, blazer aluminum, aguila, and even a box or two of stinky Tula. I carry it every day and it is my favorite of my 4 glocks. I can't imagine a better .45 for CCW or one that would make me feel safer. As a lefty, having an ambi mag release would be nice, but after having my gen 3 g23 for years, I have adapted nicely

    Will clearly have rollstamped 'Gen 4' on side of slide big as life.

    I am patiently waiting for a Gen 4 Model 30SF. The model 21 Gen 4 frame is full size and the grip is way too big IMO. The model 30SF is just right.

    Mine too! Shot one multiple times and loved it
     
  14. The money's in the kitty and I'm in line for a Gen.4 G30 also.
    I have a 21SF and like it, but I rented a G30 at the range and got hooked.

    The Glock 30Gen4 got released a couple of weeks ago.

    So far only a couple of LE distributors have got them. So, it may have another month or so before it shows up in your region.


    IMO...
    Glock 30Gen4 with no backstrap = Glock 30SF grip
    Glock 30Gen4 with med backstrap = Glock 30 grip
    Glock 30Gen4 with large backstrap = thicker than Glock 30 grip

    It's true that the G30 and G29 are now out in the Gen 4 editions.

    Details and pics can be seen here...

    I heard a place called Ed's in Georgia has them for LE/GSSF only. Both 29 & 30.:supergrin:

    Is the Gen 4 all that much better than a 3 ?
    I have a 3 on the way and now I am wondering if I should have waited on a 4 .

    It depends... I personally like the grip on the GEN4s a lot better since it removes the need for me to use grip tape. Aside from that I don't see a lot of difference with the subcompacts since they already used the double recoil spring.
