What needs to be said about the Glock 30SF? Probably nothing, because everyone who owns one already knows they are superb examples of modern gun-making, and everyone who doesn't own one already knows they want one!
The gun is Glock "perfect" which is to say the fit and finish are typical Glock....it works and it works reliably! Pick any ammo, any nose profile and it feeds! The extra thick magazine plate makes it a 3-finger pistol which helps control recoil with heavier loads.
One thing that makes the G30SF so special is it's modular adaptability! With a simple barrel swap it can shoot the .40 S&W, 357 SIG, .400 Corbon, .40 Super, and 9x25 Dillon! It can also handle .45 Super loads with an appropriate RSA upgrade. With a full-on conversion the G30 becomes a G460R "compact" pushing the mighty .460 Rowland downrange with stupifying energy!
Another point about Glocks in general is they can be completely disassembled with nothing more than a small push tool - down to the smallest components within a minute! This makes it easy to install upgrade parts...no hammers needed...no pins to be "driven out"...a very quiet and efficient teardown process. Also....Glock has THE most advanced mechanism for slide removal....it's near instant, and allows a rapid field strip for cleaning....when-EVER one may need to worry about that! The fact is, Glocks WORK...and they WORK WELL! They simply do not malfunction....that's something for all the lesser designs...and/or the limp-wristers out there who cause ANYTHING they pick up to jam! I've been shooting Glocks of ALL calibers since they were introduced and I've NEVER had a single jam! EVER! I cannot say that about any other design. This is the "standard" Glock has set that all others aspire too....
The G30 will fit into a jean's back pocket....it's EASY to carry and when stoked with Underwood's excellent 185 grain XTP at 1,200 fps/592 fpe, it WILL deliver the goods!
