    I appreciate this thread as well. I need to add a polymer 45 to the stable.

    I made a Gen 4 30S (from a 36 upper and a 29 lower) because it's not a catalog item.

    Decades as a Soldier and carrying a 1911 for 40 years finally flared up sciatica. The 30S dropped half a pound and I gained two rounds of .45.

    That would be such an awesome pistol if 1/3 of the grip didn’t fall off every time you drop a mag.

    So theoretically if someone had a Glock 30S and a Glock 30.4 they could simply take the top half of the 30S and put it on the bottom half of the 30 and be gtg?

    50 more Blazer Brass. I ordered a new IWB holster and a Ghost 3.5 connector and spring kit. I usually don't fiddle with triggers but this might be a fun experiment.
    If you aren't armed when you take a dump in your own home then your opinion on what is a practical daily carry weapon isn't interesting to me.

    I won't swear to it, but again, mine is a 36 top end on a Gen 4 29 frame.

    Just picked up a 30s myself, so following this thread with interest.

    For the trigger I do the .25 cent polish job and toss in the olive NY 1 trigger spring, makes the trigger a touch heavier but cleans up the stacking and slop with a nice clean break.

    Just dropped in ghost 3.5 connector. Trigger is substantially improved. Going to skip on the spring swap since I have a lot of RWS .45 with hard primers.

    OP if you’re handy with a file and high grit stones you can clean up the trigger a bit more than just a connector. My 17.5 and 45.5 were pretty atrocious new, especially compared to my old gen 3 guns.

    On both I stoned and cleaned up the contact points where the trigger bar interfaces with the front of the firing pin. A lot of the grit and creep through the break comes from the trigger bar sliding down the firing pin to the release point.

    Before all this crazy ammo panic hit I did the 2000 round challenge with my gen 3 30SF:

    https://pistol-forum.com/showthread....allenge/page55

    At the end of 2000 rounds I still loved the gun. It has relatively light recoil for the size, is very accurate, and mine has been 100% reliable so far. I carry it quite often, feel well armed, and feel it is the real sleeper of the Glock line. I am sure the 30S checks many of the same boxes. As a bonus, not that this would likely ever happen, but if I were to run out of HP ammo I would be good running high quality ball ammo out of this gun. A while back I was able to purchase a ton of military match ball that is accurate, clean, and sealed in cans.

    Keep us updated on your progress with the 30S.
