    Default Glock 30SF...

    Hey everyone just a few quick questions about the G30 sf...

    Does anyone own this particular model and if so please provide feedback?
    For a semi auto poly pistol in a 45 apc does anyone have any other suggestions?

    This would be my 2nd firearm purchase, and I already own and love my glock 19.

    Any other feedback would be great... Appreciate all your help.

    the glock 30 or 30sf are a good choice for a large bore carry piece. i have the std. 30 and love it. i find i shoot as well or better with this glock over my other glock options. i have 8 so i do have a broad experience with the glock platform. i personally carry this weapon in a galco sob holster with a twin mag pouch on the side. it disperses the weight well as this is not a light gun to carry. if you are comfortable with your present glock this would be a good choice for you. providing the larger grip still fits you well. happy shooting, red dog

    It is the same size as your G19. Albeit slightly chunkier.

    It's chambered in .45acp but holds as many rounds as the G26 in 9mm. 10+1.
    Which is actually fairly remarkable.

    This is my next pistol purchase.

    And then a conversion barrel for 10mm. And possibly a RDS of some sort.

    Might off load another pistol to fund it. But I definitely want one.

    Consider the M&P .45 if you're looking at other poly pistols. They now offer magazines that increase the capacity to 14 rounds.
    Sanity, yours if you can keep it.....

    I own a G30 and I reccommend it to anyone looking for a nice compact 45. They are great shooting 45's, light, a little bulky but not bad, soft recoil and very accurate. You will be happy with your purchase.

    Here's a pic of mine, it rides in a Comp-Tac Infidel IWB.

    Mine was the most accurate "out of the box" .45 I have ever owned. I wish I could have kept it, and plan to purchase another shortly. It's not much wider than the G23, but felt a ton heavier on the hip.

    As others have stated, I also have a standard G30. I COULD NOT get my hands on an SF when I made the purchase. I enjoy it greatly. Enjoy!

    I, too, like and recommend the 30sf. It is just slightly larger than the 19, with that primarily being due to the larger and thicker slide glock uses on this gun and the 10mm variety. But as a result, the recoil is very managable, much less than I expected from a .45. I have not shot a 27, but have heard that the 27 has greater recoil than the 30.

    ...and they have a plan...

    OK, I guess I'll be the only one with negative feedback. I liked my G23 so much that the G30 was my next purchase. The G30 grip was just too short & chunky for me to handle/shoot comfortably, & I could never shoot it accurately. With the mag in place, the G30 grip is roughly the same length as the G19/23, but it's........well different. I sold it & got a G21.

    If you've handled or shot a G30 & it fits you, go for it. It just wasn't for me, though.

    I used the Pearce extensions to cure that problem for me.
