    Do you know if anyone sells conversion kits to .22lr for a glock 34 gen 4?

    I know there's Advantage for the 17 but haven't found anything for the 34 yet.

    Thanks

    Yes of course .......how stupid of me.
    Thanks for the reply.

    I don't understand the lack of love for the 34.
    I LOVE it.
    Great trigger out of the box, adjustable sights, incredibly accurate and fun to shoot.
    Once I got used to them (started with Gen 3) I hardly bothered with the 17.

    The AA Kit has an aluminum slide, which is very light. The Glock no longer feels like a Glock.

    I have a Gen4 34 that is one of my favorite guns to shoot. I also have the AA kit to shoot .22's. Great piece of gear and a blast to use. I do wish it was the same weight as the 34 slide but at least I still get extra trigger time at a fraction of the cost.

    I'm not familiar with these conversion kits.
    Are the slides significantly lighter?
    Is there a way to make them heavier so they better represent the original?

    Most people will have trouble adjusting to the Glock trigger than the weight of a Glock. Working the trigger with an .22 conversion kit is very inexpensive trigger time.

    I keep saying I'm going to pick up a conversion kit. You could add some weight with a rail accessory.

    Also, Tactical Solutions has Glock .22 conversion kits.

    I picked up one for my G17 RTF2.
    The recommended ammo is CCI mini mag, or CCI Blazers, 40 gr.
    I decided to try some of the bulk stuff 1st, American Eagle, Federal bulk.
    Didn't work. Was good for practicing Malfunction drills I guess.
    Picked up about 500 rounds of CCI mini mag (40 gr, 1235 fps)
    Works perfect now !
    Mine is the standard barrel kit, but they make one with a threaded barrel.
