    What are the frame differences between the Gen3/4 G17 and the G34?

    Could I buy a G17 and then buy and fit a G34/G17L style slide to the G17 frame? Are there any differences in the dust cover/lower frame portion of the frames?

    Thanks

    It’s the same frame. The Gen3 G17,17L,22,24,31,34,35,37 are all the same frame!

    Thank you...very informative...

    Besides Lone Wolf are there any other slide manufacturers that make a G34 Slide WITHOUT the top lightening cutout? As in a SOLID TOP SLIDE? LW only has the standard cutout config for sale, even on the G17L slide.

    I did...they do...make them W/O the cutout...they offer solid Stainless Slides...

    Picked up a used LW G34 Barrel (threaded) at a gun show recently in anticipation of getting a G34, now I'll just get a Caspian Slide and parts and make a G34 upper for my G17 Gen 3...

    34 Slide will get a RMR and Suppressor Sights...kinda like this...
