    UH, the G30 is 10+1, as is the G26.

    So the question is

    Do you want power or power?

    I find the G26 easier to carry than the G30; but that may be just me.

    Use the 9 round mag with the PG-29 +0 in the G30 and they are almost exactly the same.

    IMO, Both are easy to shoot and conceal. The g26 carries better because its thinner and lighter. When comfort matters the g26 is the easy winner. When comfort doesnt matter I like the 45.

    Look at the link I posted above. The actual difference in weight is 3.5 oz and in width of grip 9mm
    The slide on the hybrid 30/36 is longer, but thinner.

    26 is by far thinner and slightly shorter in barrel size...caliber is strictly your preference...

    It is NOT thinner by far, at least not when you mate the G36 slide to the G30sf frame.

    Welcome to GT. :wavey: No need to search anything. Just ask. We'll be more than glad to answer.
    Same here. They both hide really well. Can't go wrong with either one. So, just buy both. :cool:

    So buy 2 different .45's so you can have one gun? :dunno:If you really want a truly thin .45, then get a 1911 and have 8 rounds instead of 7. :)

    A ton of people. I found out about it here and other places on the net. It works, it is thin and light, it is just as easy to CCW as a G27.
    It's all good.
    And there are folks selling G30 frames, so if you have a G36 all you need is a frame and mags...

    You are correct, to the extent that Glock needs to sell this gun. It is a natural.

    I do appreciate the information in the link but I do have both guns and cc the g26 most of the time. Its personal preference. Of course thats just me. Alot of people ***** because of the g26's double stack magazine. The g30 only adds to the width you conceal. The "hybrid" wasnt mentioned in the OP but isnt a bad idea if it is reliable.

    Yes. 7-3/4 ozs is significant. If you want the best Glock has to offer for cc, go with the 26. There really is no other answer. If you have other priorities, well, then, other models come into play.

    For example, if for some reason I desire more firepower and capacity, I have been enjoying carrying the Gen4 23 in a Nick Mathews #1, a really sweet setup.
