I may be more well served to have placed this question in a more general area of the GT forum, but we'll see. Recently, I read an article by a respectable and apparently fairly well known LE-background trainer who said that at one time he carried a G30 and loved it ,but gave it up and got rid of it due to confidence issues after having 7 (yes, that's seven) SLIDE LOCK SPRINGS (not to be confused with the slide stop lever or spring) break in the weapon. Not at all doubting the fellow on the veracity of what he said, but I find that to be almost unbelieveable, even if he was running relatively high round counts with the piece. He's also a GLOCK armorer, and is still a GLOCK advocate, though one of his larger points in the article is that there is no such thing as "Perfection" in ANY brand of firearm, much less our favored G-brand, with which I fully concur. (It's actually a helpful "maintenance" based article, otherwise. It's here: http://www.activeresponsetraining.net/are-glocks-truly-perfection ) At any rate, here is my question for you, today: Has anyone else heard of this level of failure with the slide lock spring - or any other particular part on the G30 of whatever generation - that would render it "non confidence inspiring" as a serious carry/combat piece?
