Glock 34

glock 34

The Glock 34 is intended as a competition pistol. All the extra amenities make it fun and easy to shoot. It’s basically a long tricked out Model 17, which is the gold standard and where it all began for Glock.

The model I reviewed was a Gen 3.

Here are the numbers: 5.3″ barrel, 4.5 lb trigger pull, travelling 0.5″, 25.8 oz unloaded, Factory adjustable rear sights.

The Model 34 has a cutout in the slide above the barrel to lighten the pistol. I’ve seen some port their barrels to compensate muzzle rise, but this is not factory.

The 34 also has a more tapered and curved slide in the front. I’m not sure if this is for weight reduction, looks, ease of holstering, or something else.

Now, I’m used to the Glock 22, but I find this Glock 34 to be a blast to operate. Less perceived recoil, longer barrel, lighter trigger. I was easily able to hit multiple targets at speed.

The friend who let me borrow this little beauty uses it for his nightstand pistol. I can see how it could be a good choice for home defense also. The size would probably disqualify it from being a carry gun for all but the most gargantuan of humans.
