G30sf added to the family!!

I found a sweet deal on a G30sf with night sights so I decided to add it to the Glock family. This would be my first G30 so is there anything I need to know about them? So far after 100 rounds fired through it, it shoots 100% like the rest of my Glocks..

Congratulations!!!!! I have a G30 that has had over 1k rounds fired accross a wide assortment of ammo. Not a single error. Also, I can't believe how accurate the G30 is (for me). I've heard lots of folks saying how well the G30 family shoots, but I was a "yeah...sure" kind of guy until I bought one and saw for myself.

Let us know how your's shoots for you.

Congrats on the new G30! Go grab some 9-round magazines for carrying while they are still available.

Congrats! My G30 is the softest shooting .45acp I've ever owned. It digests every brand of ammo I have put through it. I'm sure you will be happy with yours. For concealed carry I roll with a 9rnd. mag and a G21 spare magazine.
Here's mine.

To those who have shot the 30sf/30 and the 36, how do they compare?

I own the 30sf, but have also shot the 36. Felt recoil and my ability to make fast followup shot were about the same with both pistols.
I have large hands, so I like the G30 myself.

Me too!!! I traded a friend my G17 with extra mags for a NEW G30sf (he has a FFL...). I originally said a G30 but the 'sf' was what was sent from the distributor. Is plain G30 no longer available?

I'm not sorry, but the slide lock is SO hard to access. I already had had a new, extended lock ordered and it arrived today so I swapped it out ASAP. So far I like what I see. I have 3 more 10 rd mags on order for total of 5.

This could be fun....

They shoot about the same to me as well. The G30 is just a fat hog and the G36 feels more like a true Glock.
