    I know there were a lot of posts about the 30SF having trigger bar issues are there any such problems with the regular 30? BTW 200 rounds through it, 0 issues so far. And oh yeah, I love it!

    Outstanding! The G30 is a wonderful platform.

    Over 3k rounds of various types through my G30 without issue. There is gouge in the trigger bar where it looks like the slide rubs it during cycling. When it gets too bad I will get another G21 trigger bar and replace it but until then I am happy. Not sure that the -1- trigger bar would fit or solve the gouge marks on a regular G30 frame.

    Put another 200 rounds through it with 0 hiccups. Glad I chose the regular 30. it fits my hand like a glove. it already has the -1- bar and no gouges at all so i think i'm alright there.

    When I got my first gun it was between the 30 and the 21SF...I decided on the 21SF assuming i'd get the 30 next but then I ended up getting a Sig P220 Carry next. Hopefully i'll pick up the 30 this year...

    Congrats! I have been wanting to start CC'ing my G30 more and went and shot 200 rounds through mine today after work, to get used to it again. Definately an accurate little gun.

    I had a G22 and G23 prior to this and for some reason I am much more accurate with the 30. Its the Bee's Knees.

    I love mine too! My 30 has the new -1- TB and has a slight scratch on it but flawless performance! The 30 felt so much better than the 30SF to me.

    My G30 has been great for the last two and a half years I have owned it. I have not had a single malfunction of any type in almost 2000 rounds of target practice using a variety of ammunition.

    I don't know about the G30, but my G30SF has had no problem since I got mine. Best trade I ever made.
