    I put down a deposit on a Gen 4 34 today with my GSSF discount. Anyway, the owner said that they were taking about 3-4 weeks to get them in. Now when I look on the Gallery of Guns site, it says they're in stock and available. Does going though the GSSF program usually take longer than say ordering from a distributor? Could someone give me an idea on how long the wait time usually is?
     
  2. Well, when I order a GSSF award gun from Glock. they now say it will be 150 days - and don't call before!

    So it seems they put them lower on the priority list. I can't say that I'm surprised, but thats an awful long time to have to wait.

    I try the different GSSF sellers, buy, then transfer to LGS. I've had good luck with Atlantic Tactical. Recommend.
     
  5. I don't believe they put GSSF guns on lower priority at all. Glock makes "runs" of pistols, then "runs" of other pistols, etc. If you get an order in when 'your' gun-run just came off the line, you get it quick. If they made 1 milion G17s and then shipped 1 million G17s, you wait until the next run.

    Large dealers (like Ed's for instance) order literally thousands of Glocks at a time. That's why Ed's and a few others are the 'haves' and LGSs are the 'have-nots'.

    Now... couple this with the fact that Glock is many thousands of pistols behind in production, and, well...

    If I have to order a Glock, I expect the worst but hope for the best. I usually expect to wait 150 days. If your dealer delivers in 4 weeks, you are ahead of the game.

  6. OP- You know your 34 should be a Blue Label - right? Most (not all) Blue Labels come with a standard 5.5# connector and fixed sights. Not certain about extended controls.

    You pretty much nailed it with the waiting time SARDG, I stopped by their store today and he has been calling every week about the 34's. I did check out a Gen 4 21 and now I'm tossing around getting that instead, as the owner seems to keep some blue labels in stock for whatever reason. Hmmm???

  9. The 21 would be a bigger seller with many agencies using those. Florida Fish & Wildlife uses 21s. Florida Highway Patrol - .45 GAPs. :shocked:

    The GSSF pistols start out as blue label law enforcement pistols, bought through a different program with Glock. The dealer cannot sell you a white label pistol that cost him $440.00 for $425.00 and stay in business very long.
