My first Glock was a gen 4 27, and I love it. It is perfect for my conceal carry gun. I am looking at buying another glock to customize and have for the range. My dilemma is what model to start with, is it better to start with G34 or the G17? Any suggestions?

If you want to customize it, get the 17. If you want a Glock customized one, get the 34. The 34 will also have a slightly longer sight picture and slide than the 17.

A 34 comes in two configurations. One with the 3.5 lb trigger and the other with the standard 5.5 lb trigger. Other than that and maybe a optic, the 34 comes almost as tricked out as they come.

That depends on you. Some custom trigger stuff is all you can do to the 34. It already has the lighter slide and just about everything else you can do. The purpose for the 34 and 35 is to have a race gun allowed in a production class. If you want a true custom race gun, start with a 17

That's what I wanted to know, what are the best companies to get the custom parts through?

Carver Custom are some of the best but you pay for it. They will sell you the parts and will also do the work if you want, they even have custom guns already built just waiting on a new home. http://bb-enterprise.biz/index2.ivnu

Lonewolf http://www.lonewolfdist.com/ more affordable but still good stuff

glockstore.com or glockparts.com are both good choices for factory Glock parts to do a conversion yourself.

Good luck and have fun

I got the 34 to shoot in the GSSF matches. Either one you go with will do a great job. The 17 has more upgrades available.

Well I want a custom glock that will be super accurate but be a nice show piece in my gun collection. I'm not trying to build a custom gun to look at one that's performs as good as it looks lol.
