    Glock 30sf question...

    Hey guys,

    I recently bought a g30sf from gander mountain. When I first got it (around 2 months ago) I thought the guy gave me a 30s on accident, because it has 30s engraved on the slide. It is indeed a 30sf as marked on the frame. I recently noticed on a video that the guy didn't have his sf slide marked "30s" like mine, it was just marked "30". Is this something new glock is doing? Did I get a "hybrid" new from factory? I haven't been able to find any info on this, so any input would be much appreciated!

    Thanks

    The 30s is a Glock-made hybird. It's the G30 Short Frame with a G36 slide. I have one and it's my favourite pistol.
    To get any aftermarket parts like a barrel it takes parts for the G36. Frame parts connector and trigger parts use G30 parts. I use it as my every day carry pistol.
    It also fits in holsters for the smaller Glocks. I can carry it in holsters for my G19 and also I can use the Blackhawk SERPA holster for the G30s for my G19, that's handy.
    Personally I think you got a nice surprise. If you watch any videos from Hickok45 on You Tube he does several in depth vids about the G30s.

    I was always under the impression you either got the 36 slide or the short frame, but looked up a review and your right. It was a nice surprise after all! Thanks for the speedy reply, it's been eating at me since I got it

    Yeah, you bought the G30S. It's on my bucket list. I have a G30 g4. And as Super stated; the frame parts are of the G30SF (G30) and the upper is of a G36.

    I think I would have gotten more use of my 30 had I went with the 30S in the beginning. It's just as thick as the G21. Just shorter is all.

    Enjoy. Merry Christmas.
