a stellar acquisition and much congratulations.

what does the "FXD 3.5lb" mean? weight of the box, or does it refer to a lighter trigger pull than the normal 4.5 lb?
3.5 lb connector. That must have been a requested spec by the PD.

BL 34s and 35s come w/5.5 lb unless specifically requested otherwise on letterhead.

if you weigh one I can make an entry for it on the Glock Chart.
Here it is - unloaded (of course) and no mag:

#35 (oz left side of scale, lbs r)

Meant to add...

FXD = fixed sight.

3.5lb is the trigger weight, which means the pistol has the original minus (aka "long minus") connector in it. Current minus (aka "short minus") is 4.5lb.

No, they were originally made as demo guns at the request of the AK and KY State Police. They were eventually sold to Glock employees by Glock. They were later offered to GCA Members at the Convention. They were also offered for sale to GCA members via the newsletter.

Thank you!

I always assumed hoped that as well.

I've long wondered what one would bring on the open market, properly advertised and now with the original letters, etc.

I was thinking...

I always thought that my 22C RTF2/G would be the most rare C gun that I'd ever own.

I'm so thrilled and grateful to have these.

Thanks once again JMS!!! I'm forever grateful for this incredible opportunity.

May 2017 and before, they are 20N (4.5 lb) October 2017 and after, they are 24N (5.4 lb)
applies to G34 Gen 3/4/5, and G35 Gen 3/4.

so that is one more thing that makes these unusual.

May 2017 Owner's Manual


October 2017 Owner's Manual
Extremely interesting info and point.

Being that these were made as a run of 2 specifically for these two depts to trial it seems that they were free to request the guns exactly as the liked in every respect and Glock obliged. Very interesting point. Thanks so much for the info.
