    Hi Guys,

    I have a new customized (Robar) Glock 30, I cant seem to squeeze but 8 rounds in the magazine. Has anyone ever had this issue with their 30? Thanks much!

    I have heard of people having problems getting ten rounds in their magazines, but have never heard of problems with getting nine rounds in.

    There are nine round Glock 30 magazines out there but they are flush fit and your's don't look like nine rounders.

    I know my Glock 30 ten round mags are a bear to get loaded to ten, but it can be done.

    Hi and thanks, you are correct, its the 10th round that is the hard one! Nine fit fine but the 10th , yikes...I have strong paws and am pretty dexterious, I have only accomplished this feat twice. It feeds fine once I get all ten in there even using the useless Glock loading Doo Dad. Thanks for the correction!

    I had the same problem with my G30 and also with some extra 13-round mags I bought for my G23. I've read posts on GT by people having the same problem with several models of Glocks in different calibers. Some people can get the full count in the mag but then it is so stiff it's hard to insert the loaded mag in the gun with the slide forward. One guy said it even dented the top round when he tried it!

    I fixed some of mine by cutting a bit of material (approximately 1/8") off of the bottom of the follower so that it would sink down far enough in the magazine to allow easy loading of the full number of rounds the mag is supposed to hold.

    This caused no problems with my guns, but I'm just saying what I did, not that anyone else should do it. I'm just willing to try stuff lke this. I figure that even if I mess up a follower, they are cheap and plentiful, so it's no big deal.
