Glock 30S
« on: January 12, 2018, 02:12:59 PM »
The other week I was looking through the used case at a local haunt.. there were no juicy Gen 2 or Gen 3 stainless S&Ws semis, no Cz's, hoards of M&Ps in many shapes and sizes, a handful of Kimbers, I saw a Beretta or 2, a Taurus something or other and some Hks.. I did sniff around a new Ruger 10mm fresh out of the box in 1911 format, I love some 10mm, but not for that price. :o

So, I looked some more, soaking up their heat cause it was blue arse cold, and I what did I spy with my little eye, that warmed my icy black heart.... this.. a used 3rd Gen compact Glock in 45acp with 4 mags, box and papers with a godawful, but it grows on you paint job. We dickered around about price..finally came to an agreement and I went skipping out the door 320 bucks lighter.. They said used.. but I'd say maybe a box of shells in it's life. It included a hard to find 9rd, 2 10rd and a 13 round G21 mag included.
It's the slim version with the SF frame, it's essentially a hybrid..... basically a G36 single stack 45acp slide on the slimmer SF double stack frame... I have been after a plain old G30 with the heavy slide or a G21, I want to try 45 Super, which those will handle due to being equipped with a heavy slide. Between the two pistols, the G30S and a plain G30, there is about a 4 ounce weight difference in the slide, the extra slide weight comes in to play with the hotter 45 Super round, the frames are the same. But, in the mean time, this will make me a nice new small CCW with a healthy load of 45acp in my hands. I did run a magazine through it, too cold for much else, I can see why they are popular.. for it's big caliber vs. its smaller size, it is soft shooting and an easy to control pistol compared to some 45s I have shot.







I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

Leave the gun take the cannoli.

Man GM, that paint scheme is giving me a headache just looking at it!  You going to leave it looking like that or make it respectable and all?

Nice get!   thumb1

Therin lies the problem.. How.... plastic frame and strong solvents don't get long, I could end up with a pile of vomit colored mush. If it were metal and my impatience was high enough, I have a bead blaster that would strip that bubba ugly right off.. but either glass beads or carbide grit wont be nice to plastic.

I may leave it as un-respectable as I can.. it will be a reminder of.... Self... don't do this to stuff.  nea1  maybe if I ever draw it...the bad guy will laugh himself to death.. and I'm free and clear.. thumb1 rofl2


Personally... I just hope I never drop it in a grassy area  :o    Probably why I got it so cheap...no self respecting gun person would have bought it  rofl2

Remember....ugly needs love too, give it a chance thumb1


Besides....I got some others this week, Jimmy had to balance the scales some.... they are old school, 2 of which are pre WWII.. this was the worst of the bunch :)

I can't see it....  Where's it at?
      
1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.

I'd hit it with a heat gun in a semi-hidden area and see if that paint will soften and come up  I bet it will.  Besplode

As a fellow G30 owner I have to like it  :)  thumb1

I don't know either but it was likely done by a custom shop at considerable expense by a former owner, for example:

http://customgunfinishes.com/index.php/glock-30-marine-digital/glock-30-marine-digital/

It's actually a fascinating finish from a technical perspective, painting digital camo would require precision painting/templating unless it's some sort of sheet application. It's well beyond my knowledge.
