    Greetings all. Asking for a friend. Really I am. Pretty sure he has narrowed his CCW search to the G30. Shot one at a range, and finger pinched at the usual place. I have a Pearce +0 on my G36 and it closes that gap considerably. Wonder if that does the same on the 30? Thanks in advance for your thoughtful and knowledgeable replies.

    I've never had the magazine pinching issue, but I've seen others who have.

    In years past, people have used O-rings to fill the gap. Used to see the issue on Glock 19s. Check out the plumbing department in your local hardware store. You want an O-ring that fits well enough to fill the gap but not so large as to hamper seating the magazine.

    I've never had the problem. I have Pearce plus 0's on all my ten round mags. Maybe that's why.....
