    So is it fair to say ANY 10mm Glock barrel full size, compact, extended length, stock length, conversion or replacement, will work in a G30sf?

    The only glock 10mm barrel you can use in a g30 is
    a g29 barrel.

    The g20 has a different lock up, you can use it in
    a g21.

    happie2shoot is correct. Any barrel intended for the G20 will not work in a G30/30SF because of a difference in the configuration of the barrel lugs.

    In Post #20, I believe @rustytxrx meant he has used the G30 with a LW G20-length barrel for pig hunting. That would be a LW G29 barrel extended in length to 4.6 inches.

    When I had a G30 I put my Lonewolf 10mm G29 barrel in it and had fun blasting away with two 10mm's at the range. I never had any issues at the RANGE but I never carried it. I sold the G30 and now the Lonewolf barrel sits in a drawer. I don't reload or shoot lead; I should sell it and buy more Defender Ammunition for my G29. :)

    Oh, now I see why everyone goes with the extended LW G29 barrel.

    Thank you, I was mostly asking for others on
    this form.

    For those that may be thinking about making a
    10mm from your G30, that 4.6'' LW barrel is a
    good one, mine did everything both my g20/3/4
    did and more. Much better with fast cast boolits
    and more accurate.

    I think I still have that barrel and two each, six
    inch 10mm and 45acp barrels for the g30, the
    10mm barrels will also work in the g29.
