Pics of my new 34

My first and only Glock, a Gen 4 34. Have about 400 rounds through it so far. Talk about a great shooter, this makes half of my gun collection obsolete! Been looking for those Glock E-tools for my bug-out bag. The quality is outstanding and at an affordable price. Nothing but good things to say about it.
I used Remington FMJ 115 grain target rounds, I must say they are kinds light on the power (ejection issues). This was made for 124 grain so its best to stick with Winchester NATO rounds.

Very nice! Out of curiosity what kind of ejection problems and what did it make obsolete?

Nice. A G34 Gen4 is most likely my next gun, too.

Congrats Glockophobia!

I have a couple of Barsto Gen3 G34s that have been nearly flawless though many thousands of rounds.

Congrats on the new G34! I remember breaking mine in with some Blazer 124 gr. and Tula 115 gr. No issues. Don't really shoot it as much as the others, but I may have to increase the range time with it.

Be sure to keep an eye on it, because the Glock 9X19 models tend to multiply like rabbits

Nice gun, one of two on my short list, a G34 or 17L as a handle for a red dot.

I had one or two empty casings out hundreds that got stuck between the slide and barrel half-way through ejection. I'm pretty sure it was the 115 grain target ammo, some of them just didn't have enough kaboom to get the slide back far enough for complete ejection.
I had a MPA Mini Defender, kinda like a MAC-10 clone. With the thirty something round magazines on this Glock I wont be using the hefty MPA anymore...sold. Also a Rossi and Ruger revolver in .357 mag, and a lever action hunting rifle. I sold them all worth about $1500. What I have now is this Glock, a Mossberg 500 12 gauge, and my trusty S&W 645 .45 ACP.

I've always been a fan of the original 17L's, but the 34 is easy to find and does just as good of a job. Put a small optic and a silencer and you one very lethal urban warfare weapon.
