    Been thinking hard that I want a Glock 34----
    Would like to hear from all that have any real personal experience with one-
    Before it's asked I have NO particular use or need for it :D
    Well, I do have a little project in mind but that's if & after I get one & whole new thread :eek:

    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! :D

    I have the 35 as well...since I am not carrying it, I prefer the long slide and adjustable sights. I find 40ammo to be more readily available these days as well.

    I have the 24 which is the same as the 17L except in .40 and I absolutely love it by far my favorite to shoot (on the right next to my g22)
