The Glock 34 starts in the low $600s.
How much is a decent trigger setup? $130ish +?
I can't speak to others preferences, but I think I'd probably look at a sight upgrade, so what... around $80 to $150 depending on preferences?

Sorry, but this thread reminded me of this one:

In all seriousness, you should at least take a look at the XDm 5.25.

The recoil spring and guide rod could be less flimsy.

Although there are many aftermarket parts out there to correct most of these problems they safe not my cup of tea. Who wont's to spend $600 on a gun and another $400-$500 to make it work the way you need it to?

Plus I like my guns to be easily adaptable to others. Example: if SHTF and I gave my glock to a buddy he might not be able to shoot it very well. Due to the angle of the grip it may take some practice to git it right. This may not be an option at that time.

And for the record I do have a G23 gen4 and yes I can shoot good with it. It's just not my taste. Plus it's ugly.
What do you pefer

Oh I've heard of all the flimsy guide rods and springs failing under hard use. Or not.

The grip angle isn't an issue for most users. If you hand your Glock to your buddy and he can't shoot it for beans, it's your buddy sucking at shooting, not the grip angle.

So assuming you're not using cast projectiles and during a SHTF scenario you don't have poor fundamentals or girl wrists, you'll be fine.

I've seen no reason to modify a Glock. Sure, it's not a Kimber, but you can run the piss out of it and it's one of the easiest platforms to shoot.

I agree on taking a look at the XD platforms. They're pretty nice.

I've got raised night sights and an EFK barrel on mine. I can straight up do surgery with that thing, lol. The XD platform is great.

Like I was saying the glock just isn't my choice. But if you are not reloading or using non jacketed bullets it is ok.

Even tho I do not care for glocks my G23 is my carry gun. But I don't use reloads or hard cast for SD.

I would like to add. The only reason I carry my glock is bc it is the smallest gun I have. I will soon be carrying the XDs or shield.

I think my 34 is great, I use mine in IDPA matches and have had great success. Never had a jam. Paid $635 new in the box
