I wonder when it will come out? Maybe a big PD will order it or something and get the ball rolling.

Any news on the G50 in 12mm GAP?
I will write the check right now.

Is this before or after the 9mm single stack?

At dawsonville a Glock rep told me that a PD in California (IIRC) did put an order in for the 30/36 hybrid dubbed the Glock 30S

Scotty Banks shot my G36 frame with the G30 slide and really liked it. The heavier slide tames the snappiness.

:rofl::rofl::rofl:i ccw a glock 36-30 hybrid,but when i put that leftover(30 slide on 36 frame)together, it is truly a freak-o-nature,it looks almost as goofy as the m&p shield!!:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Why would Glock make this a factory offering, when they can sell 2 guns to every nimrod wanting to make his own "Hybrid" 30/36 ?

The hybrid idea just screws up a perfectly good G30

I find it very strange this combination works.

I think we are looking at a 30 with a 36 slide for production:tongueout:

...or sell neither to the people wanting the 36 slide over a 30 body?

At least they are listening; hopefully we can get a single stack 45/10mm option.:whistling:hint-hint-wink-wink-nudge-nudge

I have disappointing news for you. FBI testing has shown the 12mm GAP cartridge to be too powerful in recoil for many of its agents. They are, however, experimenting with a reduced power version of that cartridge, commonly referred to as "FBI-lite-the-sequel". If that load is found to be useable, it will be marketed under the brand name ".48S&W". The Glock 52 model, shooting this cartridge, will hit the market twenty three minutes later, and S&W will again look like klutzes.

Last I heard was that the G30s was sitting with the ATF for their blessing, but unless they can make up a real good argument for it being just a slight tweak to the G30 it probably won't be on the Cali Roster unless they add a mag disconnect.

Pray to the Glock Gods!!! I wish they would come out with an entire line of single stacks 10mm, 357sig, 40sw and 9mm!!!!

The 36 slide is is narrower and topping the 30 frame, easier to carry IWB. The recoil is different. The wider frame helps with felt recoil.

Switch slides and see how the 36 over 30 works for you.

ON THE GLOCKMEISTER FACEBOOK PAGE IT STATES:

The word is out that GLOCK will be producing a "30S" this pistol will be a glock 30 frame with a G36 slide. What are your thoughts on a Glock 30S?

So would a 30s with a slim frame be a 30SSF? Or a 30SFS?

After putting the G36 slide on the G30, I did notice it made the gun lighter. I still like the thinner grip of the G36 though. It doesnít seem to stick out as far for me. I have a funky build anyways. Itís difficult for me to find the right gun for CCW and not have it print in some way or another.

Yesterday after work, I took my G30 and G36 both to the range. This was the first time I shot the G36 since I just picked it up last Saturday. Both of them seem to shoot the same for me. I was happy that the G36 ate my reloads without any problems. Now I need to check it for function with Hollow Points. Then I will start carrying it.

To me that doesn't make sense to me, but maybe it works for you. I think increased slide speed cuts down on recoil, or perceived recoil. 36 slide on a 30 frame makes seems more logical to me for recoil control. For CCWing too the 36 slide and 30 frame would be the way to go. I might have to dig out my 30 slide and 36 frame and give it a try.

Perhaps someone can school me here because I really don't understand the point of this. The G30 frame stays the same width, so how do you gain a concealment advantage when, at it's widest point, the gun is still the same width? It also seems to me that the frame/grip is what prints more than the slide. So why do so many people want/create this hybrid?

For the same reason why we dress up in frilly ladies undergarments - because we can, dammit! :embarassed::rofl::embarassed:

The gun would be lighter, handle different and depending on the holster might be smaller. The difference is .14" or something. I think the difference in handling is the key, maybe a little weight savings.

You are correct about the grip being the part that prints and this hybrid not helping in that area.

Right there with ya bro.... I have to look at crappy Kel-tec and Taurus for the super hot summers here in Texas. 1.14" is not that slim. The G29 and G30 are really chunky guns. 1.24" or something like that. Unless they come out with a sub 1" single stack 9, 40 or preferably 357 sig The 30/36 is just a waste of time and resources by Glock IMO. The slide, upper, or cylinder in the case of a revolver arent the deciding factor for concealment ease. Its the grip width/length... The 1911 guys have an easier time concealing a "Flat" single stack 1911 with a 5" barrel because the grip is not a Fat as the G30/29.

:faint: are you saying you can't conceal a G30 under a tshirt?
Is a 1911 frame shorter than a G30 frame? Length is the problem moreso than width.
IWB vs OWB carry will make a difference and possibly make up for any .## differences.

I wouldn't down grade to a "crappy" anything because it got hot. I would just be hot; and before we go there, constant 90% humidity with high 90s low 100s can be the summer norm here.

Never said the 1911 is "shorter", It is narrower in width. I do wear slightly oversized t-shirts and "IMO"...which I stated before (I am not proffessing Gospel here...) the G30 is just a bit too fat.. The G32 is the limit "FOR ME" for "discreet" carry... I used to carry a G29 but, I am 20 lbs heavier than I used to be and yes my fat @$$ makes the G30 print...lol (6'1" 225 used to be 205) So I should have qualified my reasoning to why the G30 prints on me .... I hope that clears up my reasoning... my hunting buddy can carry a desert eagle on his much more svelt physique LOL..:embarassed:

See, it has been my experience, being shorter and heavier than you, that the "padding":whistling: helps soften the outline. Now if your waistline is rockhard and keeps the gun out, instead of being soft and allowing it to "tuck in", then you may have a problem. Maybe you are too skinny for a G30:tongueout:.

Don't misunderstand, I wasn't trying to change your mind on what to carry. I went through the same decision making processes regarding heat, clothing, weight, holster selection, caliber floor, etc...

When comparing a 32 to the 30:
the 30 is only .1" wider, its grip is .97" shorter and it is 1.06" shorter in overall length. Loaded it is only .7 ounces heavier.

The 32 gives you 3 more rounds but in my experience had a more recoil than the 30 and a louder report.
