    I was wondering if I could put a glock 34, or 17L barrel on a regular model glock 17. Would it have positive or negative results?
    Good idea... Bad idea?

    It will work. I've done it with my G34 barrel and G17. It may add a few fps, but its really sorta pointless. :)

    But never try a 17 barrel in a 19, cause the 19 has different locking-block angles.

    A G34 or G17L barrel will work and provide a slight increase in velocity, but will not alter accuracy because you have not changed the distance between the front and rear sights.
