The new Glock 30SF follows the path started by the Glock 21. Â Shown at the 2008 SHOT Show was the all new .45 ACP polymer pistol from the Austrians.
Based on the original model 30, the SF is a compact, double-stack pistol chambered for the cartridge John Moses Browning madeÂ legendary. Â This version of the pistol shaves about 3mm from the backstrap to improve the overall girth of the pistol. Â This fits the hand of more people than the seemingly oversized grip on the standard Glock 30.
This handgun has the standard Glock rail (not a Picatinny rail). Â Additionally, it has the standard left-side-only magazine release. Â The Glock 21SF introduced an ambidextrous safety, but this model does not have the ambi-safety.
