    Do all 34s and 35s have the "cutout" on the top of the slide at the end of the barrel? Does it serve as a "compensator" to cut down recoil?

    Are the standard, out of the box sights on the 34s & 35s adjustable for windage and elevation?

    Can I use standard 17 & 22 mags in the 34s & 35s?

    Thanks guys

    You can use the 17/22 mags in the 34/35. The cut out is there to reduce the front end weight.

    As Slotback indicated, the cutout is to lighten the slide to the same approximate weight of the G17/G22 slides.

    If you get a Blue Label (LEO) gun, it MAY have fixed sights (like mine did). If it is the Civilian model, it will more than likely have the adjustable sights.

    Yes... they use the same mags.

    The G34/G35 also comes with the extended mag release and slide catch lever. If it is a Civilian model, it will have the 4.5# connector (which is also referred to as the 3.5# connector); if it is a Blue label, it will be either the 4.5# or the 5.5# (depending on how the LEO distributor orders it).
