Default G34

Is there a big difference between a G34 and G19? Im guessing longer barrel means better accuracy and less recoil? Can anyone adviced that owns both

The size difference is pretty big, and of course the recoil will be a bit less. But you won't notice a accuracy difference really, it's a glock. You'll get more velocity with the 34, not huge though. It helps to know what you want it for exactly?

As an owner of both, I can tell you that the only differences I notice between them while shooting, are the rear sight and the trigger. These two pistols have only been shot at 25 yards and under, so as far as accuracy is concerned I see no difference. The groups could possibly be tighter with the 34 but I've never measured them. As always though it's just my opinion. This year I shot 4 division at the local GSSF match, I shot a 17C, 34, 17, and 19. My two fastest times were with the 19, and 34 though.

Its for competition. I joined GSSF and current waiting for matches, new hobbie. I own a G19 gen4, ive had to qualify with it when i was hired as a security contractor, but ive never shot a G34 but heard its a good handgun for competition. I already own a G19 23 and 30 but figured 9mm is best to compete. What do you guys think?

The 19 will serve you just fine for GSSF. I was able to clean the 25 yard target at GSSF with my 19, and not with my 34 (obviously user error). But if you want a 34 get one. It's not needed for GSSF and is only legal for 2 divisions, Competition and Unlimited.

I appreciate the help. Ill probably hold off on the 34 then. Ive been working ot like crazy thinking i had to come up with an extra $500 for the 34 on top of my kids and family chrismass presents. Ill just go with the 19. Gotta say it, I love my Glocks, especially my blue label prices.. Anyone attending the match in clearwater, fl jan4&5?

Haha I'm in PA, I think I'll just wait for the Topton match to lose to Bryan Dover, no need to fly to Florida to get my ass kicked.

If you do go with the 34, you will like it! For me, I find it a little faster back on target due to the added weight. I also like the sight radius being longer. That is probably due to my old eyes. Shoot the 19 in the amateur division and set up the 34 for an open class gun. Shooting with the real good guys is fun. That is what it is about. You will developed better shooting habits shooting in the upper divisions.
