  1. 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.

    Wikipedia has this listed as a "competition" model.

    The 24 and 17L were the competition models before the 34 and 35 were produced, I believe.

    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.
     
  14. Thanks for all the feedback fellow Glockers!
     
  15. 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.
