Does anybody know if a G36 upper (2.5 gen) would fit on a G30 SF (3rd gen) lower frame (looking for more capacity)?? I've read that a couple people have tried it and it worked flawless.. I haven't been able to find much online about the glock 36 2.5 genernation though..

It works 100% on the gen3. Not sure about 2.5.

So does that mean i can get a G36 lower and it'll work with a G30SF upper?

I've heard people say they've done this successfully (including a couple of people in my Glock armorer's class) but haven't seen it with my own eyes.

Do you by chance know any differences between the 2.5 and the 3rd gen? they look like the exact same to me I didn't even know mine was a 2.5 gen until I looked up the serial number I thought it was a 3rd gen.

Works fine.
G36 upper on a G30 lower. Gen 2.5 or 3

^^Thanks.. I wonder if it would work on a G29SF frame too being that its the same frame as the G30SF..

Looks like the slides for a G30SF and G36 are interchangable.

My question is, what would switching slides/uppers get you?

^^ More capacity from a double stack magazine

I guess I'm dumb tonight... G30 and G36 are both .45 ACP. Putting a G36 slide on a G30, you get a 10 rnd
pistol with a thick grip and a thinner/lighter slide. The only difference between this and a stock G30 is a thinner
slide, a couple fewer oz in weight and probably a bit more recoil. Is that all the pro/cons?
