    Was hoping that someone out there had the two and could compare the relative recoil and muzzle flip between them. Reason, I have never really found that my 34's longer site radius was more noticeable than that of my 17 but I did notice that the shots are more controllable (to me). Having some arthritis, a little more controllability is important to me. If I can shoot a 4th Gen 17 and get that decrease, it'd be worth it to me. Just wish they had a schedule somewhere on when the 34 is going 4th Gen. OR can someone recommend a change to my 34 that would still be IDPA / USPSA legal but help out. I believe that someone mentioned a lighter recoil spring.

    Thanks....
