    Yes it was just announced not available as of yet but there are some on here that have done this. They have both a 26 and 30 and have made the switch. Shouldn't be an issue since the 45 ACP isn't a high pressure cartridge. The slide is slimmer on the 30s or a 30 with 36 slide.

    I need to get one of these. I currently looked at the G30 Gen3 and loved it, $650 out the door. I'm sure the 30s might be a bit more expensive.

    Went to a local dealer today (1/26/13). He had 2 for the same price as regular G30's in his shop. His prices are hard to beat in this area... $519 for the G30S.

    A customer walked in & traded for one of them. I looked at the other one for a while, but could not bring myself to trade my almost-new G30SF for it.

    I saw one in the gun shop today! I really would like to shoot one though to see how the recoil feels first... I'm not a big fan of my G27 honestly (too snappy) but .45 has that longer push so it may be alright.

    For me, the G30sf shoots much softer than the G27 (I have both). I expect the G30s, with its lighter slide, will be in between, but much closer to the G30sf.

    So what's wrong with the SF since everyone is talking about and seems to want the 30S?

    G30s is a hybrid (G30sf frame with 36 slide). It is lighter, and the slide is thinner than G30sf

    Why do you say that? I don't own a G30 yet. The Gen4 looks like my next Glock

    Like James Dean I don't own a GLOCK 30 either...I would prefer the G30SF To the G30 because of the slightly shorter frame (front to back)...I think I would prefer the Gen4 G30 because of the 3rd magazine, larger mag release and I like the frame pattern...I may even prefer the G30S best because of the slimmer slide (if it doesn't add to recoil much) but might wait for a Gen4 version if GLOCK builds it...
