(GunReports.com) — At SHOT Show 2013, Glock, Inc. announced the Glock 30S, a conceal-and-carry hybrid pistol that blends a factory-made 36 slide on top of a 30SF frame — a compact design that shoots the 45 ACP round.
The 30S packs 10 rounds of .45 ACP in a package that fits the hands of most users.
“The G30S platform has been more than a year in the making,” explained Josh Dorsey, Glock vice president. “Our original request from the field – particularly from law enforcement – was to have a more concealable .45 that still carries 10 rounds, so we utilized the G30 SF frame after it was thoroughly tested, presented and accepted as the desired frame for the G30S.”
