    I plan on getting a G30S, as my next pistol. Since I have a G29SF, I got to thinking that I could get a G36 and couple of G30S magazines. I could then have a 6+1 single stack 45 ACP pistol or put the G36 slide on my G29SF frame and have a 10+1 45 ACP FrankenGlocked G30S. Does this sound feasable or am I missing something?

    After modifying my search a bit, I was able to locate a few answers my questions. They were calling it a 30 (or 29)/36 Hybrid.

    A G30S is my EDC. I own 3 of them if that tells you my opinion on them. ;)

    I run a G36 slide on a G30 frame. I've done it so long I forget I'm doing it.

    Which Gen frame? I’ve almost given up hope of Glock releasing a G30S.4.

    I’d rather just have a G30S...

    Not crazy about the 36. I do like the 30S.

    Thanks for all the input, it was very helpful. I'm going to go with the G30S. I'm also guessing Glock will come out with a G30S gen.4 the day after I buy one.

    I like my 30S a lot. It was my EDC.

    I have been looking hard at the 30s. I have a 30sf and it is a great shooter but the same thing that makes it a great shooter (big and heavy slide) does add bulk and weightfor carry. It doesn't seem like much on paper but as we who carry know it can make a big difference.

    Why "it was" your EDC?

    I stepped up to a G29 Gen 4. Just a bit more punch!

    Love the 30S made my own Gen4 from a 36 complete slide and 30 Gen4 frame. I also put the smooth trigger bar in. Found out the 30S uses a special SSL SP30973 so I ordered one. No issues with the regular one yet though. I like the flush mag for concealment and 21 mags for reloads.

    I also made a Gen 4 G30S by putting a G36 barrel and slide on a Gen 4 G30. It has fed and fired everything I've put through it.

    I like the 36 and 30SF. Unfortunately both are a little large for me to carry except during winter. They pretty much only get used at GSSF in major sub comp.
