    Glock 30 and 30 SF

    Anyone have comparsion pics of the two so I can see the difference.
    Stopped at my gunshop today and all he had was a mdl 30,which felt pretty nice.I have small hands so if the SF is a little smaller it might be a +.

    The only difference is a smaller backstrap. It is a smaller grip.

    Ditto...same height...same length......I think the back "open" area is lessened to shorten the distance from the backstrap to the trigger.

    I've held both and I couldn't really tell any difference. I have medium-size hands, but small hands may notice it more. Either way, it's not much smaller.

    Same here. I also have Med hands and couldn't tell much of a difference. In a way, I actually preferred the standard 30. It seemed to fill the webbing of my hand more.

    3mm difference.

    I have pretty large hands and I do notice a difference. Neither is uncomfortable to me but I do prefer the feel of the SF models.

    Looks like they "dehumped" the backstrap. I guess it depends on the individual whether if makes much difference. Certainly a try-before-buy situation.

    In NY you can't try before you buy unless you find a friend has what you are looking to buy and I don't know anyone who owns a 30SF.
    All I can do is dry fire at the gunshop. NY sucks
