    I didn't realize i could be so unaware about G30's after a year of GT, But here are a couple more G30 questions:

    Is there a 9mm conversion barrel that works in the G30?

    How do I identify a G30sf with no G30 for comparison?

    Ooops! Hey, you're way ahead of me on that one. Are you saying that I'll have to switch ejectors shooting 9mm out of a G 30? Well then I guess I can ASSUME it CAN be done right?

    Or did you just answer someone else's question?

    Or am I REALLY clueless?

    I was showing you pics of the different trigger housings and yes, that was somebody elses question. Sorry
    No, a 9mm conversion barrel is not available for a G30. The breach face of the slide is way too big and the power of the 9 is way to little

    No 40 conversions either.
    We built a G21-10mm conversion barrel for awhile and experienced a 10% FTE. The 40 is actually a 10mm short. It lacks the power and authority of the 10mm. I figure the FTE with a G30-40 conversion would run 20% or greater!

    Thanks for your patience, JR!

    It all sounds like a good reason (for ME) to stick with a G 27.

    You can easily convert the G27 to 40/357/9mm. The 40 cal Glock pistols are very versatile.
