One of the most common questions you’ll hear when comparing the Glock 30 and 30s is “what’s better?” Both are semi-automatic pistols that offer the same firepower, but there are differences in the features of each. The Glock 30 is a simple, reliable firearm with good control and grip contact. The Glock 30 is also less recoil-prone than many other semi-automatic pistols.
The Glock 30 is an excellent concealed carry gun. It is available in three different models, the SF, XP, and DS. The SF model has a shorter frame, lower grip profile, and shorter trigger reach. It still uses the same 10-round, double-stack magazine as the other two Glock models.
The SF model is a smaller version of the standard Glock 30. It features the same slide and frame dimensions as the Glock 30, but has a slimmer slide. Despite the slight size difference, the 30s is more ergonomically designed and has a longer, more comfortable trigger pull. Those with smaller hands will benefit from the SF model’s short-frame. The shorter slide will allow the gun to be drawn from concealment more easily.
The Glock 30 is available in a range of calibers, including the legendary 45 ACP. The 45 ACP Glock offers the ballistic quality and excellent out-of-the-box precision of a big-bore, yet offers reduced recoil and a shorter trigger reach.
