    Has anyone mounted a light on a new Glock 30 that has frame rails? If so, what type of light and how did it work?

    Thanks.

    I put a GTL on my G30 every night and set it on the night stand, it works great.

    Thanks for the replies gents!

    And thank you badger30 for the picture of the TRL-1 mounted on your 30. Thought that unit might be too large, apparently not. Have you had any malfunctions while shooting with the TRL-1 in place?

    Have you fired it w/ the light on her? Any issues Stangy?

    Ive put a number of rounds down range w/ my GTL on my 19, sans issue, but haven't had the big bucks to afford some .357 SIG practice rounds with which to test the 31. The 30 is next on my list, had one b4, traded it and now I regret it!!



    :)

    I have fired only 100 rounds with the GTL attached and no problems. I don't plan on returning to the range with it as I don't see the need for further testing. The GTL is a great tac light for the money.

    I use a TLR-1 light and have shot about 300 rounds with the light only with zero issues and about the same amount of rounds with the light and G21 mags with zero issues as well.

    The 30 is flawless dude, no matter what you add to it.

    Tack on an internal lasermax and trijicon night sights like on mine, and you're good to go.

    :thumbsup:

    Badger, do you have an extension on that mag or is that stock? I'm probably getting a G30 in the next week or two and wondered about a small extension. I havent held one yet but I'll know more when I rent one from the range prior to purchase.

    Thanks!

    I've got the Pearce extension that matches the grip and I love it. It doesn't add any capacity to the mag but with a G30 9 should be adequate bacause they'll all go off.
