Because it was probably rushed to market. Typical Glock

Because they probably aren't making a Gen 4 36 yet?

They should use that slide for the G39.

I hope it doesn't take a year to see the G30s in Gen4

G30S Fast Facts:

The G30S weighs 3.53 oz less than the G30 Gen4 due almost entirely to the lighter slide. When comparing the two with a fully loaded mag in both, it works out to about a 10.5% reduction in loaded weight (30.16 oz vs 33.69 oz).

What makes the G30S so much better then the alreay G36??? I am in the market for a G36, but if the G30S is the best thing since sliced bread i would probably go that route. It's just a question, The only thing i see the G30S is that the 36 isnt is it hold 10 rds where the G36 only hold 6. So is that the only major advantage

The G30S is more versatile for double duty as a home defense pistol. The G30S can use a wide range of magazine options to load 9, std. 10, 11, 13, 15, 17, 27, or 30 rounds in a single mag (http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/showpost.php?p=18969831&postcount=3). The G36 mag options are 6 and 7. The G30S has a front accessory rail for a tac light and/or laser. The G36 doesn't have a rail.

I will wait until the Gen 4 comes out. The third gen gets too slick.

The G30S looks nice but Glock is missing the boat in not having a single stack 9 product offering. If Glock can reduce a .45 slide down to 1.13 in the Glock 36, technically a 9mm slide could be reduced to less than 1 inch. While the new G30S offering looks appealing, I still believe a single stack thinner 9 and .40 would be a much bigger commercial success. Given the popularity of ccw today, it explains the success of the Kahr PM/CM 9's, as well as the success of the new S&W Shield. IMO, thin is in and while I love my G26, something thinner would be even more comfortable. IMO if Glock came out with a single stack line in 9 and .40, they'd be big sellers, cuz it just doesn't seem logical that the thinnest Glock is a .45 in the G36.

For me a single stack 9MM would never fit into my plan. I want capacity in my CC choice as well as size. A G26 is a great CC gun if your looking for small.

This.
Not so sure they will either. They probably would have waited the extra few months or what ever to release it and use the slide on the Gen4 G30 to make this a Gen4 model.

What would a Glock single stack 9/40 bring to the market that Kahr, Diamond Back, Ruger, Kimber, Taurus, Beretta, XD, Sig or S&W doesn't?

The S&W Shield is hot right now and the Sigs also seem to be. Tough market for Glock to enter right now. Especially when they are already backed up with production. Maybe SHOT '14/15...
The 36 is Glock's slowest seller.

Caracal showed off their new carbine that takes their pistol mags. Glock could have been the innovator there. They would have made a HUGE splash in the gun world if they did. Probably would have been a nightmare for Caracal?

Springfield Armory didnt seem scared to debut their single stack 9mm against all the competition. As a matter of fact after shooting it on media day I already switched gears and now I will be buying it, instead of the shield.

Glock should wake up and see that they have nothing to fear and everything to gain by building a 9mm single stack or a carbine to compliment their vast handgun line.

I know the 30S isn't exactly "huge" news, but I like the idea. I do hope for a Gen4 grip frame instead of the SF Gen3 frame, I like the texture of the Gen4 much better. One reason I like it is that the 30S seems to be more similar to the G19/23 size (slide thickness) and would seem to make it an excellent choice for carry over the standard size 30.

One of the keys that attracted me to Glocks is the versatility of being able to use larger mags on the compact and subcompact frames. My H&K's and Sig's do not offer that.

I cannot think of a situation where I would prefer a single stack 40 s&w over a G27 gen4. I would prefer to have my larger capacity mags as backups.

To me, it makes more sense for Glock to keep up with production demands and convert current models to Gen4 and then work on models with narrower options that still retain the magazine versatility.

I agree that I would rather have a Gen 4 frame for the 30s, but I believe the only differences are the grip texture, mag release, and dual spring??? (Correct me if I am wrong please)

Unless I am incorrect about that I am getting one ASAP. The mag release is nice, but this is not going to be a competition gun. I don't think the spring matters and I prefer Talon grip tape over the stock Gen 4 texture anyway. (Mainly I don't want to wait till next year!)

I'am waiting for the Gen 4. I really prefer the new grip. I'am very surprised that you did'nt have more muzzle flip then you did. Thanks for posting.
