    Longer barrel & lighter trigger pull (someone correct me on the trigger pull if I'm wrong please)

    You're right Bocadan..

    Longer barrel, longer slide, longer sight picture, adjustable rear sights, extended magazine release, extended slide release, Lighter trigger pull, more expensive. I guess thats it.. I don't know if I miss something. :confused:

    Not all 34's come with the "-" connector. If you get a blue label it may come with the standard connector or even "+" or NY1 or NY2 depending on the masochistic policies of the PD that the dealer usually sales too.

    You guys missed the biggest issue. The G34 comes with a cut slide and ported barrel.

    Hmm misspoke. Thought they were ported. Well you can put a ported barrel in it :D Still can wait till I get one of these for comps.

    With that correction, it has pretty much all been said.

    Unless you ask for different, may came with an adjustable rear sight also. While it is a novel idea, most get replaced.

    g34 barrel length = 5.31", overall L = 8.15" unloaded weight: 22.9 oz ( for most competition )

    The 17L is disqualified from IDPA for sure. Not sure about the other leagues though.
     
  13. My wife owns a 34 and was contemplating buying a 17L. I'm not into competition, but enjoy target practice. Anyone see a reason why they 17L would be a bad idea?
