I have shot several that belong to friends. The extended controls, factory 3.5 lb trigger and longer sight radius make it very pleasant to shoot at practical matches. I have a 17 that basically has all the same features retro-fitted except the long slide. I still would like to add a 34 or a 17L just for that extra sight radius.

I've had one. The difference was in the trigger pull, the adjustable rear sights, and the slide cutout. None of that was a big deal. In theory you gain accuracy but get slower on target. Practically - same as the 17. Try it. They are less prevalent, but also less popular, still an easy trade.

The 17 is absoluty my 3nd in line--- A 34 is really just a matter of biting the bullet & spending the cash--A 17L is kinda a longshot

I have been thinking about doing the 19L conversion to my 17. And if I got a 34, I'd have to do the 19XL conversion!
