    You have to be specific about the actual stoppage. Does it FTF or FTRTB?

    They get hung up on feed ramp and slide fails to return to battery. Cartridge sits at 45 degree angle in relation to magazine and won't chamber.

    Try some Gold Dot or HST ammunition.

    ^^^^^ try another brand or type of hollowpoint.G30s are great carry guns but they can be finicky with certain bullet types.I have owned 3 of them and none would feed swc bullets

    Mine feeds Ranger T's HST's PDX1's Gold Dots, and pretty much anything else I load.. sucks that yours is doing that.. hopefully the HST's will work fine with yours...

    My 2007 Gen 3 eats everything. Took a bite out of my sandwich the other day when I wasn't looking. Cheeky little bastard.

    Time to send it back to Glock. I bet the trigger bar is the issue. Is it a G30SF? What is the number on the trigger bar when viewed from the top with the slide off?

    My G30 SF has fed Remington Golden Sabre's just fine. I've also fed it Speer Gold Dot 230gr, no problem either. Those are the only 2 types of hollow points I've fed through it.

    My Gen3 30 feeds HST 230's, Gold Dots and 230gr Golden Sabres with no problem. That's all I've tried, I carry Golden Sabres in it.
