    After sending my new 30SF back to Glock for the second time because of FTRTB issues, Glock sent me a new pistol. I picked it up today at my local FFL and put 50 rounds down range. A few hiccups in the first 10 rounds, but everything went smoothly after that.

    Seems the new pistol is a shooter, and a keeper.

    Also want to say that Glock customer service (John, in technical services) has been fantastic. The return trips of my old gun cost me nothing, and they sent me a brand spanking new replacement (test fired on March 4) that works as it should.

    Either you're easy to please or I'm spoiled.

    I have 6 Glocks (17, two 21's, 22, 31, 34.) 18,000 rounds between them & not one hiccup when new or used.

    I also don't believe in the term "Break-In Rounds."

    You'd send it back b/c of a few hiccups in the first 10 rounds?? Come on...

    I expect a few hiccups in any new pistol. If there's a problem after 100 or so rounds, that's a different story.

    They replaced my 30SF with another 30SF. I got a great deal on the gun, that's why I bought it. I feel little difference between the regular and "short frame" models, so I'd buy whichever is priced better.

    Did they tell you what the problem was with the original gun? Bad rails, frame out of spec, slide out out of spec, etc.??

    I'd like to know this too. More specifically, are the rear rail heights shorter than the front rail heights in relation to the frame? Easiest way to tell (if you don't already know) is to slide a nickle under the front and rear rails. That will quickly show any differences.

    I would love to know this as well...... I'm also curious if it is showing any signs of wear on the trigger bar riser....

    Glad to see Glock is finally taking care of G30SF owners with problems.

    Do your full mags load smoothly in the new gun?

    Off topic but my new G27 came with copper grease on the part you asked about and 200 rounds later it was gone so I don't think it is strickly a G30SF item.

    My Glocks (19,26,23,27) have never had a "hic up". I have easy 5k through all of them, prob close to that through my 19 ang 23 alone. Im glad I ditched my 30sf, fit me great but too many issues. JMO

    i guess what the op needs to identify is what a few hiccups means before everybody jumps down his throat with their opinion of how a gun should work...for all we know it was an operator error concern...and please...many guns exhibit some bad manners when they are new...from the least to most expensive...the concerns did not continue so theres no reason to believe there is a problem...

    I know that the 30SF probably outsells the 29SF 50:1, but has there been any reported problems with the 29SF? Or is this a 30SF upper problem?
    Thanks,
    Chris
