    So I saw this glock 30S... Basically a G36 upper and a G30 lower... What you guys think? Is it worth getting rid of my 30sf and going with this or I wont tell the difference with the 36 slide width while im carrying?

    The 30S is the new Glock Handgun coming out soon!

    I was told the narrow slide makes it more comforable to carry Inside The Waist Band. Also I was told it will fit some holsters designed for the Glock 19 or 23.

    Maybe someone with a G30, G36 hybrid could shed some light on this.

    This is being discussed in the GSSF forum and the rumors in there are that it is legit. I am definitely interested. I just picked up a 19, had this been available I probably would have gone that direction.

    For me personally its not so much how light it is, but rather how much narrower the slide is. The regular 30 is bulky as hell to me. The 36 slide is much slimmer.

    right on!i love mine ,i got a chance last year to pick up a late-2000-g36(in tupperware) for 500.00 it had the lazermax in it that i sold on ebay for 215.00,i then picked up a 30 frame on gunbroker for 125.00 done deal,its a great gun,ccws awesome.the inside of my buddies 30 slide and my 36 is spot on,glock didnt have to make the 45 slides that thick.i guess they made the 20 (high press)and then just made the 21(low press) the same.glock is not going to be making a gun out of 2 seperate guns,i dont know why people have nothing better to do than to start rumors:dunno:that picture has to be photoshop,dont you think to get around the standard-sf frame deboggle they would just do it on a gen 4 frame!:faint:if you want one of these your prob going to have to piece one together.but yes the balance of the hybrid w/9 rd mag is perfection.

    It would be nice but my fingers don't fit in the 30's finger groves, sucks because I would love to get a 30. Strange because my fingers fit my Gen 4 26 just fine.

    Out of all the things they could have done with their line up, this is the best they could do?

    This is real! I just got off the phone with Glock. Was told the 30S will be released at Shot Show 2013.

    The 30S will have a Gen 3 frame.
