Default Glock 30 Conversion to 10mm

I have a glock 30 sf & I been thinking of buying a G29. I heard u can convert the G 30 from 45acp to 10mm just by changing the barrel is this true & has anyone done it. If so I would love some info please. Thanks

Well the 30 is a 45 acp correct? If so the 10mm barrel would have a smaller Dia. seeing 10mm is a .40 So you'd def have a dia. gap in your slide. I dunno if that would be a safety concern or not.

A propriatary barrel for .45 slides? I suppose that's possible but I've never seen one before.

No. There is no easy conversion. You have to get a new slide. You can get a .400 Corbon and/or .40 Super barrel for the .45. Either do a good job of duplicating the 10mm ballistics

I found out that storm lake makes a conversion barrel from 45 to 10mm for my g30 all I need is g29 mags. I'm going to do more research on it for sure

EFK makes a .40 super that rocks. Rifle ballistics but not cheap to shoot.
