Deciding I would reload & shoot the 45 more I bought the G30, love it, and shoot it well however owning  a 10mm is driving me crazy! Someone mentioned I should be able to convert my G30 to a 10mm? The frame appears to be the same as the G29 (10mm).

Is this true and is it safe to do so?

If so what parts do I need?

Is this done often?

 

Thanks in advance!

10mm is awesome in the small guns.  The frames for the G30 and G29 are the same, I often put my g29 upper on my 30SF frame.  There are a couple of ways of doing it.  Buy a G29 upper or just add an aftermarket conversion barrel.  Not sure how easy a complete upper is to find but that is the best option.  I did quite a bit of research on the barrel a while back and there are plenty of mixed reviews on the barrel only solution.  Some people suggest swapping the extractor as well.   If you have a G30s though, the barrel only solution will not work.  I found out after buying a barrel.  Not quite enough research apparently.    I ended up buying back a G29.

Much appreciated DeweyH! I should have mentioned mine is a G30 Gen4, how does this changes things if it does?

Shouldn't change anything.  Probably opens more options if you go with the upper.  Gen 3 uppers should also  work on gen 4 frames, but not the other way.  If you are looking for carrying the 10, I think the upper would be the better option.  Also check out Underwood ammo.  From my G29, I get 1175 fps from their 180 gold dot load.

Hey DH,

Cannot find an upper anywhere... Did find a Storm Lake Conversion barrel and of course mags. So I called my gunsmith and he said he just could not imagine that would not work. It would be an $200 experiment however just really don't want to spend $650 +/- on a G20 or g40 right now...
