    So i have a G30sf with truglo tfo,glock 3.5 connector and LWD lighter springs with 1/9 round mag and 2/10 round mag... Someone wants to trade me a OD G26 with 3 mags,3.5 connector and stock sights...

    I love how the G30sf shoots sooo smooth... Never shot a G26... Only 19 and 17... How does the G26 shoot compared to the G30sf and would you do the trade?

    I have never shot a 30sf but I do own a 26 OD and will never get rid of it. It is a great shooter and conceals great. A 30 SF is not hard to find but a 26 in OD, are hard to find for a decent price

    I would trade in a heart beat. You can always get another G30sf. The OD Glocks are getting harder and harder to come by.

    I would not trade but that's me. The G30 is about the best Glock. I use to have a G26 and while it is accurate, if you add a extension to the mag its the size of a G19! It only holds 10 rds, so do you want 10 rds of 9 or 45?
    With that said I own a G19 and G30 now :supergrin:

    I traded my OD G26 for a G30SF recently and dont miss it at all. I dont care about the OD. 10rds of 9mm or 10rds of 45 for a carry gun I will take the 45. I can shoot it just as fast and accurate. If you have ammo for the 45 I would keep it, ammo is not easy to find right now. Luckily I gave the guy 700rds of 9mm and he gave me 650 rds of 45 (150 hp's). Then I traded off over 2k rounds worth of 9mm reloading supplies for 45 reloading stuff.

    I personally would keep the 30SF.

    Well that's 3 for Od and 2 stay with the 30... Well you guys say OD is rare and gets more of a premium to buy... So what you value an OD G26 and a G30sf?

    Ones who say trade most likely have never shot or own the G30! :supergrin:
    Also a Glocks only color should be Black, period!

    I havent seen anyone local get more for OD, FDE, or RTF2? Maybe on gunbroker or somewhere? Do they still make the SF's? I still see OD at gunshops and guys selling them new in box for normal prices, other then now with the current panic situation.

    I own both. I like my G30sf but, I can go to just about any gun shop anytime and buy A G30. I can't say the same for the OD G26, that's why I would make the trade.

    Looks like OD glocks especially the G26 is worth $100 to $200 more then a G30sf...

    I decided to trade cause well you cant find an OD glock as much as a G30sf and well i can get all day long a G30sf for $545 if lucky $500 and well i only see OD glocks go for $700 and up... I seen all the gunbroker listings and 5 od G26 sold for $700 to $800 and they still have to pay shipping and ffl... So as much as i love my G30sf the fact is i can go get another one...

    This one just sold and comes with no box... He gave me the box 3/10 round mags with extensions and 1 33 round mag for my G30sf with 2/10 round mag and truglo tfo sights... So i did good i guess...

    Lets see...

    OD glock.... or root canal.......

    It's hard to decide.... Maybe the root canal? :supergrin:

    Both are awesome guns but I just don't get the appeal of the OD guns.
