Default G21 barrel in a G30?

Does anyone know if a glock 21 barrel will work in a glock 30? Been trying to order the extended barrel made for G30 but they are all on back order. Thanks

If they are both the same caliber and both barrels are made by glock than yes.

what is the 30? if its a .45 like the 21 then yes the 21 barrel will fit in the 30 slide but off the top of my head i wanna say the 30 is a .357 sig.... that barrel will NOT work in the 21 because the frame is a little bigger for the .45 and 10mm when compared to the 9mm, .40 s&w, .357 sig frames.... i hope that answered your question


the longer barrel of the same caliber will always fit in the smaller length slide.... with glock at least

The 30 is a .45. I think the barrel will be really long though. Did you compare barrel lengths?

If you want to shoot a different caliber you need to get a conversion barrel like the ones lone wolf makes. You can't just swap out factory barrels.

From what I've heard they work pretty well. Might be what your looking for

Yes that is exactly what I'm looking for! Only problem is stormlake and lonewolf are both out of extended barrels for the G30 so that's why I was wondering if I could just swap out factory barrels. Guess I just gotta wait til they come back in stock

I bought this EFK Fire Dragon from a vender when I was working at one of the Florida Gun Shows. I use it when I shoot lead ammo in my G30. Contact him if he has one I,m sure he will send you one, he's a pretty good guy.
Hope this helps.

P.S. it drops right in!

Sorry, the link in the picture is not working. So just go to the EFK Dragon web site. Looks like they have the barrel in stock.
