Glock 30 Review – Glock 30SF Review

The Glock 30 is a compact version of the Glock 21 .45 ACP pistol. It is a Glock in all respects. Light weight, highly reliable, and the small size does not hinder accuracy. The Glock 30 will punch big 45 caliber holes with the precision of any Glock. The Glock 30 holds 10 rounds of .45 ACP and will accept the larger capacity 13 round magazine. of the Glock 21. The magazine has a thick base which does provide a rest for the little finger. Shooting the Glock 30 with standard magazine is comfortable and allows plenty of control. If you have large hands then perhaps a Pearce or Scherer magazine extension will help.

Glock 30 Review – Glock 30SF Review

The Glock 30 SF is a .45 ACP compact size pistol with a smaller size grip. The trigger reach is 3mm shorter than the full size Glock 30. Capacity is 10 rounds of .45 ACP in a double stack magazine. The Glock 30SF frame is checkered with finger grooves. A feature I like on all Glocks is the flat textured forward face of trigger guard.

The 30 SF is a wide pistol, about 1 1/8th inches wide. Even so it is popular for concealed carry and is the preferred CCW pistol by professionals, law enforcement, body guards, and government agencies.

I have the Pearce plus one magazine extender that provides a contoured rest for the little finger and also adds an extra round to the magazine capacity.

A note about Glock 30 magazines. The spring is very stiff. A trick to help make loading the magazine easier is to fully load the mags and let them sit. After a few days the spring will weaken to make loading easier.
