Own both. Which caliber are you most used to shooting? The 34 is less expensive to shoot. Both are fine pistols. With the price of ammo nowadays that might be a big factor in your decision.

excellent accuracy and range, i love the 3.5# trigger also.

if you plan to compete, this would rock your world.

Get lightweight springs (trigger, striker and plunger) and it'll really lighten up that trigger pull.

New sights such as Dawson Fiber Optic with Heinie or Sevigny rears would turn it into a ready capable IPSC/USPSA gun. :)

Yes -- the trigger is NOT as light as they claim. Mine was VERY accurate - Colt Gold Cup Accurate -- but as stated in other threads the GLOCK grip angle just doesn't work for me. For slow deliberate fire at paper it was easy to get good groups, but I was always adjusting my grip slightly.

maybe with one of those aftermarket aluminum frames it would be even better.

leaning towards the 9mm due to ammo cost cause i know it wont get much cheaper from here and im almost positive for my first pistol im going to buy either a 9 or .45. and well they dont make this pistol in a .45 so we'll see what should i expect to spend on one?

I own the G34 and for a "stock" gun - it is awesome! :cool:

If I have to do it again, I would get the G35 instead - all I need is a 9mm barrel and I can shot both 9 & 40.

Just my 2 cents. :)

Both the g34 and g35 are good reliable pistols. I think that of all the glock models the long slides have the best balance. I prefer the g34 for idpa and uspsa competition. It's a 9mm, so it shoots soft and is less expensive to feed. The g35 has a lot of recoil and my large hands gets bit by the slide. I don't have any trouble with the grip angle, but some people do. Magazines, parts and accessories are inexpensive and easy to find. If the glock fits your hands, it's a good choice.

I've got the 34 and it is all around perfect for me. Wish I could tell you something to look out for but as far as I'm concerned it's got no issues at all. Runs great and is more accurate than I am.

I have both (G35 also with 9mm conversion barrel-range only)

Recoil is nil. What specifically do you want to know? Go get one.

Here's mine:

My G34 is a absolute JOY to shoot. Due to ammo costs, the 9mm is preferred unless you reload.

You can only convert down, not up because of discreptancy barrel diameter fit on the slide.

For the G34, they can be converted to shoot .380, 9x21 and 30 Luger.

well im thinking it may be better to get the 35 just so i can barrel swap!

You can with a .357SIG model Glock, but ammo may be scarce. Just stick with the G35; then get a .357SIG & 9mm conversion barrels. Just make sure you grab the appropriate caliber magazines; .40S&W and .357SIG mags can be interchangeable...I haven't personally tried it.

I've put many many rounds through my g35. It works great on hoser stages I don't notice the recoil too much compared to my SVI's. Where I notice the difference is slowing down for a shot on a small target. The better trigger on the SVI's really shows up then.

It's a great gun like others have said buy the 35 then down the road get a 9mm barrel for it.
