    One of my clients found a G30s at a LGS that looked like it had never been shot for $425 out the door.
    I was pleasantly surprised at how easy this smaller framed gun was to shoot rapidly, accurately.

    I have a Glock 30SF and it's great!

    Is the lower the same as the 30SF? That's what their website indicates, except it has a thinner slide.

    Apparently, the 30 Gen4, the 30SF, and the 30S are all being produced currently as well

    Very Good price, bought my second 30s about 5 weeks ago. Small package, good shooter, 10 rounds, if ergonomics fit you probably the best 45 to carry.

    It's been a while since I had my G30sf out. But if memory serves, the slide movement while firing seemed noticeably slow. Am I all wet about this? I'm curious if someone more skilled than me, with the lighter slide of the G30s could shoot a lot faster (with accuracy) than with a G30sf and it's heavier slide.

    I chose the 30s because of ergonomics and slide speed. Originally it (the 30s) were to be for competition, I have re-evaluated and decided in not participating this year and saving the $500.00 match costs (per match) The last two years I have used smaller platforms (26's)because of their speed, tailor that with reloaded ammo with the correct recoil impulse you have much faster times.

    That's a great price. I think I paid nearly $ 600.00 for a new one, right after they came out. It's a heck of a good shooter.
