    I recently looked at a used G30 at a shop. The s/n began with "C", I believe. The gun was clearly worn in several areas. This gun felt quite heavy to me, more so than the 23 ounces it's supposed to weigh. I haven't seen one of the newer G30's yet. My question is, are there frame differences in the older versus the newer G30 models? This older one felt heavier than all of my other handguns which I know to be lighter. Thanks for the help.

    Good question, I would call Glock and ask directly, that would give you the direct line answer.

    I believe the frame for G30's has never changed--there were no 1st or 2nd generation G30's or anything added after they had begun production. The only thing I know that changed was the finish (dull to high lustre), but that changed on all Glocks. The slide is thicker than the G23 and comparably long so it feels a little top heavy when unloaded. Hold one with 10 in the mag and it balances out nicely.

    The extractor changed shape to include a loaded chamber indicator.

    Maybe he was selling it fully loaded!
    It was a van wasn't it, not a shop at all!?
    ;e

    I don't think there's a weight difference, some days we just feel stronger than others...
    Maybe you had decaf that morning...
