This model had the widest and shortest grip of the test. But, the extended magazine floorplate provided added purchase, and this compact .45 ACP didn’t recoil was much as we expected.

If the Glock 30’s safety wasn’t depressed with the shooter’s trigger finger, it blocked the rearward movement of the trigger.
Taking down this Glock is quick and easy. Start by removing the magazine and ensuring the chamber is empty. Pointing the muzzle in a safe direction, pull the trigger to uncock the internal striker. Retract the slide about 1/8 inch, then pull down on both sides of the slide lock lever, located on the frame above and in front of the trigger, with the thumb and index finger of the same hand. Push the slide assembly forward and off the frame. Remove the captive recoil assembly from the slide, then withdraw the barrel. Reassemble in reverse order.
