Does anyone have both? a 34 and a 17L? how do they compare? I saw that Glock has reintroduced the 17L again. I thought the 34 took it's place

I personally prefer the 34 because it balances better for me, but both are good guns...you won't go wrong with either, but the 17L is more of a "specialty" gun, I think.

Plus, if you're going to shoot IPSC production I don't believe the 17L would be legal since its barrel length is over 5" and it won't fit in the size test box like a 34 will.

According to a Glock trainging rep that I talked with about 2 weeks ago, Glock was going to reintroduce the 17l and the 24 for abit to test the waters and see if they get a bite.

This was at a Glock armoror's re-cert class.

As a G34 owner: Go G34 !! I have not regretted it.

I have a 34 and just would like to know if I missed out by not looking for a 17L

The 34 is definatly more of a general purpose gun and is accepted in almost any competition because it is roughly the same size as a 1911.
The 34 has great balance and accuracy. I should never have sold it. I had a 24 (17L equivilent in .40) and fell in love with the way it handled. Unfortunatly it was very old and made from mis-matched parts, and was very inaccurate and unreliable.
I put a 17L on order when they announced the latest run. it should be here this month (knock on wood). If you really want one, you need to find a good dealer who will really search for you, as most of them are pre-sold.

Somebody told Glock they should make a carbine, so they reintroduced the 17L! Close enough!
