    Are the magazines the same in both the Glock 30sf and the Glock 30 Gen4?

    Yep, they interchange just fine. The 30sf is one of my favorite glocks.

    One possible issue arises if the mag release of the Gen4 G30 pistol has been reversed to left-hand operation. In that case, a Gen4 mag with the added mag catch notch for left-hand service is required; something the earlier Gen3 30/30SF mags lack (see attached photo). Gen4 mags always work in the Gen3 G30/30SF/30S no problem.

    Note: Some of the latest Gen4 mags have done away with the center cutout notch for the ambidextrous mag release; a feature not used by any model of G30/30SF/30S pistol. Only the original Gen3 G21SF 45ACP pistol had the ambi mag release.
