    I am picking up a FDE G-17 in the next day or so. Can I use my Gen 3 G-34 upper on the Gen 4 lower ? TIA

    No, the dustcover on the gen4's are shaped differently to accommodate the gen 4 dual recoil spring assembly.

    Take a look at this thread:

    Gen 3 slide Gen 4 frame?

    I can't personally vouch for a Gen3 G34 upper on a Gen4 G17 receiver, but people are definitely running Gen3 slides on Gen4 receivers. I wasn't sure it was possible until I read that thread.
