Just curious is to why Glock doesn't have a G24? Or did they? If anyone knows, let me know! Thanks!

They did, it was a longslide .40 S&W, but I don't know what happened to it. I guess it is the G35 now.

Glock named products by the order he manufactured them. The Glock 17 was the 17th product he produced. I think that's what I read somewhere. I'm sure others can shed more light on this.

The Glock 17 was his 17th patent, not product. Thats why it starts at 17 and there is no 1-16, patents that they didn't end up using or other possible products.

The 24 is still available. It is also listed in the 2012 product magazine that just came in the mail. One of the LGS I visit, has a NIB on the shelf. I have been tempted to get it.

What's different between the 24 and 35? I've never actually seen a 24 in person.

The barrel on the 24 is 6.06" and the 35 is 5.31".

The 24 is essentially a 22L like the 17L is to the 17. The 24 is more expensive than a G35. That's one reason I bought a Gen4 34 over a 17L.

Great info in here. I often wondered where the numbers came from.

The 17L and the 24 aren't eligible for IDPA, hence the 34 and 35 came out with the slightly shorter barrel.
