The Glock 30 in .45 ACP.
In terms of weapons with practical vocation, Glock does not count any more its followers. First of all for the reliability of its productions, and secondly for the excellence of its safe action system. In addition, the range of variants of Glock pistols is so extensive that everyone can find something to suit their needs, in the caliber of their choice.
As a general rule, combat professionals prefer “full size” Glocks (17, 22, 21), unconstrained as they are by an imperative of discretion. Agents in civilian clothes or bodyguards prefer the compact Glocks like Glock 19 or Glock 23, more stealthy under a jacket. Individuals holding a license to carry a weapon generally tend towards subcompacts (26, 27, 33, etc.), which are easily concealed and optimized for short-range defense.
This last category belongs to the Glock 30 proposed here, the subcompact Gen 4 of the brand in caliber .45 ACP. Of course, carrying such a weapon on the public highway will be strictly prohibited for the French sports shooter. Still, it is the occasion to experiment with specialized qualities on the shooting range.
The Glock 30 is a launched firing pin pistol, chambered as stated in .45 ACP. In operational terms, it will behave like a single-action weapon with no apparent hammer, ready to fire from the first chambered cartridge. Taking into account its vocation, the shooting can, of course, be done without an engaged magazine.
This immediate employability does not come at the expense of safety since all Glocks benefit from the brand’s Safe Action plate. It combines 3 passive sureties:
- A “firing pin safety” only allows the firing pin to pass when the trigger is pressed.
- A “trigger safety” (the small pedal on the trigger) prevents its unintentional depression.
- A “drop safety” prevents the release of the firing pin in the event of the weapon falling.
Glocks can therefore fire in a fraction of a second without endangering their user during the port.

A removable charger ensures the supply of this Glock 30 in .45 ACP with a double polymer column. The version offered on this page includes a +1 heel pad allowing the weapon’s capacity to be increased to 10 + 1 shots. If necessary, the Glock 30 will, of course, be compatible with the larger chargers of its big brothers, the Glock 21 and 41.
We no longer present the polymer carcass having established the bi-material architecture as a standard. Glock 30 is Generation 4, compiling the interchangeable grip backs, RTF2 grip texture and fingerprints. Of course, like any double-column pistol in .45 ACP, the Glock 30 is wide. That said, it is still quite comfortable for a medium-sized hand.
Interestingly, unlike the Glock subcompacts in 9×19 mm, .40 S&W or .357 Sig, the model 30 in .45 ACP is entitled to a Picatinny rail for the addition of accessories. A privilege that he shares with the 10mm subcompact, the Glock 29.
