Thanks! As an update to this I picked up a 30SF on Wednesday and shot them both last night.

I'm a better shot with the 30 than the 21, but like them both very much!

I picked up the 30 to be my EDC.

I own a 21sf also. I bought an Advantage Arms 22LR conversion kit for mine & couldn't be happier with it. It has the same look as the original slide & with the right ammo is 100% reliable. The kit comes as a fully functioning, complete slide that simply replaces the oem slide. There was a waiting list for it, but it was well worth the wait. It sure is a lot cheaper to shoot 300 rounds of 22LR as apposed to shooting 300 rounds of 45acp. Something to think about...


...oh, by the way, I love your G30. I would have one of those also, except 2 years ago 45acp ammo was non-existant & 40s&w was everywhere, so I bought a G27 instead. Oh well..

Awesome. I've been saying for a long time that I wish Glock would release more SF models. The could make a fortune in the CCW market by doing so.

How is the reliability with your .22 conversion?

Great looking pistol, James! But I hate you! Your pics rock.

The AA conversion kit has been very reliable. They recommend certain ammo and as long as you stick with those rounds it is near 100%. They recommend Remington Golden Bullets & CCI Mini Mags among others. I use those 2 exclusively. I had a box of Winchester 22LR, which they say "don't use", and sure enough I got jambs. The CCI ammo has been 100% reliable. The Rem. Golden bullets have been 99%. They don't have quite the quality control so occasionally I get a dud. This kit was well worth the money. It has the look and feel of a Glock and breaks down exactly the same way as a glock. No problem with the mags either.

It doesn't group as well as my Browning Buckmark, but I didn't expect it to. It's not a tack driver, but at 25 ft. I get approx. 4" groups or better. The Glock type sights on the LE version are adjustable so it can be dialed in to a point. The CCI ammo groups better than the Remington ammo. It's good for practice, but I wouldn't use it in competition.

Sounds good enough for me. I may pick one up and try it out. Thanks for the info, it helps.
