    The 30 barrel is thicker and will not fit in the 36. Also the barrel hood is relieved on the 36. I no longer have a G30 so I can't give you comparison pics or measurements.

    I just went and snapped these pics for you.

    As you can see, the G30 slide fits (and appears to function) just fine on the G36 slide, but it is a bit wider.

    The fore and aft measurements seem pretty close to identical on the frames

    And the slides

    More to follow... too many images for one post

    But you can see the barrel on the G30 is a little thicker (G30 on your left)

    And here, you can see that the G30 barrel won't even go in to the G36 slide. (I tried from both ends)

    The spring on the G30 seems to be a bit stronger too, just FYI.
