    What do you guy use, if anything, to reduce recoil. Reduced loads, springs, compensators, guide rods, whatever. Let here it.

    I for one do not think the recoil of the 30 is bad at all. It's probably the softest shooting .45 out there without being ported or compensated.JMO

    The Harrts Recoil people have a rod that fits the 30, you may want to try them. I have one on a 21 and it works great.

    Ouch! $80 bucks for a G30 compensator? I'd say deal with the recoil. That money is better spent on a good holster or practice. They really don't kick that much...

    Just shoot it and learn to handle the recoil.

    Or ship it to me and I'll deal with the recoil. If you don't like the 30, don't buy a 36.

    I'm convinced that for the .45 ACP a good firm grip and some determination are the best recoil reducers, or should I say recoil controllers.

    Don't monkey with the internals, or you might get malfunctions. Keep the gun as stock as possible and practice. It's a soft shooting gun straight out of the box.

    I use Wolff guide rods and 19# springs. Works for me.

    Just took my new used Glock 30 out to the range for the first time. I took my G 36, which has a 3.5# connector & a 21# Wolff recoil rod in it. The 30's internals R stock. I did replace the original G 30 recoil rod w/my OEM recoil rod from the G 36. Since I know that recoil rod is virtually new. Using Wally World Value pack 230 gr. FMJ. The 30 was definetly "Softer". Then I put the #21 Wolff rod in the G 30. WOW ;f
    Now the G 30 is like a Chi-Wah-Wah (have no idea how to spell that little ankle biter's breed). All the noise but no bite. The recoil feels like a soft push with almost no muzzle flip. I put 200 rds. through the G 30 w/the Wolff setup. No hiccups & the brass was landing +/- 5' over my right shoulder.

    Recoil is quite soft, muzzle flip is controllable with a good grip.

    Ditto here for me. The 19# rig is perfect for the G30. I shoot Pro Load 200gr. +P for my carry loads, and this configuration works great. No frame battering here....even with +P.

    The Wolff non-captured spring/guide rod sets are great....I also use them in my G27 (with 18# springs).
