    This thread hasn't come up about 100 times in the past year. Does anyone use the search function?

    It may not be a concern for some, but I believe you cannot use the grip extensions for using the fullsize mags in the 30sf. Only with the standard 30 frames. The extension piece that slides over the fullsize mag does not match up to the bottom of the grip properly.

    If I'm wrong about that, please correct me.

    Certainly something to consider.

    I have two sources from Glock that have said the 30S will be released at Shot Show. I do not think a G30 Gen 4 frame will work with the standard 36 slide. They have different recoil springs.

    Someone on the forum in the past week or two already posted that they are just waiting the 10 day period before they can pick theirs up.

    I would love to know where (s)he ordered it from. It's not even advertised as available on the Glock site... Nor Glockmeister.com nor Glockstore.com.

    I'd be interested :cool:

    i live in st.louis and last year at the nra show the kid at the glock booth had a 30 and 36 on display,i ask him if he ever mixed the 2 and he went ahead and assem.the hybrid.he told me (ya glock is actually thinking about making this)his exact words.id like to have a numbers matching hybrid,but even more id rather just buy a glock 29,w/conversion barrels you have a lot of caliber choices.

    Buds has a listing for them, last posted price $627, but no pics yet. Probably not available yet.

    Goat36: I have a Glock 36/30 hybrid. The frame is a 30sf and yes, the A&E mag spacer does work on the Glock 30sf using the Glock 21 magazine. I seldom use it and carry it as my second mag, but it does work.

    Yeah like others have said It totally works. My friend has a 30sf and I have a 36. We did the swap and put about 100 rounds through it with no issues.

    Once I get a few other things for the G36 I want I'm going to probably buy a G30 Frame complete to I can have 2 guns when ever I want to.

    I bought a 36 last week and traded for my old 30 I bought new years ago. I guess I know what I will be carrying .

    Glock does make a stock G30 G36 hybrid. It is called the G30S it has the G30SF frame with the G36 slide. It is on the Glock website. The G30S uses a Gen 3 frame

    Because the 30 will fit in the same holster as the 36 with the slide from the 36. Will not fit as a standard 30 . I know it doesnt seem like much but the extra width matters on the holster I have . I have both so I might as well get the extra rounds.
