    Slowly all my other pistols have been replaced by Glocks, I figure it simplifies training since the trigger pull and the "controls" is the same on all models, makes holsters and accessories nearly universal and now that Im used to it the Glock grip angle feels more natural to me. The last holdhout is my bedside gun, a Springfield XD45 5". I was thinking of replacing it with a G22 or G35 but I wasnt sure what would be more practical. I would imagine that the G35 would be a tad more accurate with the longer sight radius and give a slight boost in velocity over the G22 due to the barrel being longer. Any other advantages/disadvantages I'm overlooking?
    Thanks and Merry Christmas to all.

    Of the two I would go with the Glock 35. The grips on the two are the same but the 35 has a great balance. It is also very accurate.

    I own and compete with both. I shoot my 22 better.

    Go with the G35, and build your own G22 top end from LoneWolf or some other place...

    Personally I like front press check serrations (one more option to get a slide to *rack* with one hand) so the stainless LoneWolf slides work well for me.

    Add the 9mm conversion barrel, and possibly a .357Sig barrel... and you have a very small footprint in the safe that covers most battlefield ammo pickup options! :cool:

    And, you should come away with big $$$ in your pocket from not buying a ton of individual pistols.

    HTH, and

    Merry Christmas!

    For a bedside gun the G35 has no real advantage over the G22.

    And you can get LE trade-in G22s for $350 (including night sights) so why not take advantage of that. Good night sights are a must for a gun by your side at night.

    I am a huge fan of the Practical/Tactical Glocks. I have a 34 and a 35 with Santa supposed to bring me a 357 sig barrel.

    Don't forget about the 24, the .40 version of the 17L.

    How about a G21? I shoot my G21 more accurately than my G35 or my G22. :dunno:

    I looked hard at the 21 but it was just a bit too thick for me to hold comfortably. Also I was trying to whittle down to 2 calibers (9mm and 40) so I could leverage my bulk ammo purchases and devote more time to practicing.

    My understanding is that they made a few G24s along with the latest small batch of G17L models. I could be wrong, but that's what I've heard. I picked mine up new from Academy Sports about 6 or 8 months ago.

    G35 gets you the 3.5lb connector, extended slide stop. As CSP says the G35 has a good balance. I have both so I guess I could not make a decision.

    How do you like your G35 compared to your G24? Is your G35 a 4th gen?

    I have been shooting a buddies G22 4th Gen lately & really like it. I plan to buy a G35 4th Gen though and put a 9mm conversion barrel with comp in it for speed shooting.

    Thinking about replacing my 1st Gen G19 with a 4th gen G23 too. Before I buy a G23 I want to test it & a G22 in the King Tuk IWB holster because I like shooting the G22 better.

    I'd go 35. I got a 3 rd gen 22 and I like and shoot the 35 better plus I like the grip texture better. Throw some TFOs on it and u got a gun for the bedside and or competition. I carry the 35 everyday n love it

    I have a 22 and 23 and a 35....all have their place. I really like the size of 23 and that is what rest on my nightstand. The 35 is a lot of fun to shoot. Has a different balance and with the lighter trigger is just a great shooter.

    The 35 sounds good.
