    Our Glock rep was in the shop where I work part time for "Glock Day" about a year ago. He said he and a few others put a 36 top end on a 30 lower, at Smyrna, and after a brief period of not so smooth operation it ran OK. We then tried it with some guns from the showcase. They went together but not perfectly. It seems that something is slightly out of sink for really proper operation. It is a neat idea but for myself I'd like one that was debugged at the factory. What would that be....a G33 1/2?:supergrin:

    What is the point?
    The 30 and the 36 are perfect the way they are.
    I know... the 36 only has 6+1 rounds of 45acp. Like that isn't enough!!!
    I have found that the grip is the part that makes a gun harder or easier to conceal.
    I have found that the slide width or length usually doesn't effect it all that much.

    If possible, I would like to see some photos also. The old threads/posts don't have any photos. I guess due to the amount of time since they were posted, no photos show up now.

    Which poses the question - If the G36 slide is sufficient to handle .45 ACP (which it certainly is), why the extra width/weight on the G30 slide?

    Why not use the same slide (G36 slide) for both guns from the factory? :dunno:

    I personally would love for my G30's slide to be the same size as the G36. Less weight, less bulk, better carry, IMHO.
