Bought a 30 SF yesterday,when I load the magazines to capacity (10), the magazine will not go into the firearm, but if I put 9 rounds in there, it goes in fine?

Anyone else have this issue?

The magazine is new, just store 10 rounds in it for a week or two, the spring will soften up then you'll be fine.

With new mags I just slap it in when I'm using 10 rounds.

Common issue with the G30, as stated put 10 in and let sit, will eventually soften up, or use 9 rounds and shoot it a few times, eventually it will accept the 10th round, it's just a stiff spring and really isn't anything to be alarmed about :)

Random question: will a G30 magazine fit in a G30SF?
Good question and honestly never thought about that before, I'm assuming it will fit and that the SF is due to a reduced area behind the mag well where some people put those plugs... Just my guess/assumption :)

Also a G21 mag will fit into the G30sf as well. I too have the same issue with my 30sf and I insert the full mag into the mag well with the slide back and then rack it. I is a lot smoother that way. Hope that helps.

My 2 cents...

Random question: will a G30 magazine fit in a G30SF?
Yes...a G30 and a G21 mag will work in a G21SF and the G30SF...I know, I own one.

Additionally...

All Gen 4 mags will function in all previous Gen Glocks with the caveat that if a Gen 4

Glock user switches the mag release button from the left to the right side for left handed

operation, they can only use the current Gen 4 mags...all other Gen mags will not work at that point.
