    Thinking about getting a Gen 3 G34. One of my local gun shops has a recent production G34 with a serial number starting Sxx. I've done a search and found a mixed bag of results. Anyone on here have G34 falling in that serial number range? If so, has it been good to go or a problem child?

    Queen Bee,

    With a used gun, I still think its a 50/50 shot. Its possible I won't know the history of the pistol and what has been done to it by a previous owner/owners. This could make trouble shooting any potential problems even more frustrating. I also get factory service support if I get a less than 100% funtional new pistol.
