    Bought a Glock 30SF about a month ago. Changed sights to Warren Sevigny Carry Fiber Optic and a Vanek Trigger system. Shot it last week for the first time. WOW! Thing is a tack driver. I like a lot! I'm in. Need a number.

    I have been trying out a G30S for a little over a month now and really love it. It's well balanced, carries easily and has already accounted for two pigs and a skunk. I posted the below review in another thread.

    I bought my G30 in 2002. I have other Glocks that I've bought since but the 30 is my favorite. Mine is a Gen 2.5; that is, it has the finger groves but no rail. I've somewhat "modernized" it with an extended slide release, tungsten guide rod, LCI extractor, and Trijicon night sights. It still has the 4256 trigger bar which I've had no problems with so no need to change it. For some reason this is the Glock I shoot best.

    I have had my G30 SF for 2 months. It's very difficult to get the tenth round in the mag and very tight to click it in the frame. I heard this could be standard for new glocks. I have 100 rounds through it and have read post that need to put 200 rds for mag to loosen up.

    Any thoughts ?

    Ditto here in S FL...went shooting with my bud in late Jan and experienced the same thing - had a G3o, G27 & G36...at least ONE mag for the 27 & 30 exhibited that problem. When I bought my G30 I had the same problem with my 10 rnd mag even after I installed the aftermarket extender...could NOT get that final round in...I have a weak left side due to a stroke and THAT might be on of the contributing factors. I saw Hickok45 on YouTube using a mag loader which I found out was an Uplula...think I gonna find one at a gunshow soon....but I've heard the same thing - that the springs require a break-in period...dunno how long that period is though...

    CB in FL...I use the range here in Port St Lucie - the owner, Ed, is Sean Hannity's cousin....met him w/o knowing who he was at the time...good guy.

    I had the same problem with my G30 when it was new. I also have the same problem with new mags. The mags will eventually become more forgiving if you leave them fully loaded.

    You're right. I considered one after trying a friend's. But, as you say, after a break-in period, the mags are fine. I no longer see the need for the Uplula.


    Nice! I work in Rockledge. I might swing down there some night after work.

    If you shoot very much at all, you gotta love the Uplula. Even after mags become easier, it's just a great item to have in your range bag. Makes loading a double stack mag a joy, instead of a pain. I use mine on a regular basis.

    Great gun, the 30......

    A Gen 3 with night sites and tucked into a Kramer holster is my nightstand gun.

    A Gen 2.5 in a Ryan Grizzle Working Man is my truck pistol.

    I usually carry something slimmer in a semi-auto, like a G36 or the little XDs.

    Hey Guys. I have had G36 for years now, and used to carry it a lot. Now I seem to be carrying my G30SF more. (I actually carry my Keltec P3AT, everywhere I go.)
    I have 2 questions: Firstly, I put the slide form my 36 onto my 30sf frame, fits and works nice. Can I put my 30 slide on my 36 frame?
    Second, my slide doesn't lock into battery all the time, thinking weak recoil spring, any recommendations as to what brand to replace it with?
    Cheers...

    The G30/G30SF slide and barrel will fit and function on the G36 frame. Of course, test it first for reliable operation if you intend to carry the hybrid pistol. Some competitors in the Major Sub division of GSSF have been known to use this config to take advantage of the stiff and heavy upper of the G30 for maximum accuracy.

    Hi, man I like that grip reduction. How much does that cost and who does it? I also love the pearce grip extension. Is that item #g30. I have the g39 for my 26 that ads 2rounds and gives me a very nice grip. The mag ext that came stock on my 30sf are lousy. I want the one you have on your 30. Would you please confirm which grip ext. by item # you have on your 30. Thanks and bye for now.

    First time glock owner and it seems like i made the perfect choice! Talon rubberized grip should arrive tomorrow... Then it's off to the range. Now all i need are night sights.
