I purchased it without reserve....

Glock 34 O.D. with adjustable sights.

It was REALLY hard to find one new in OD. They were very common in all black. Also, I had a really hard time convincing them to exchange the two 10 rounds for one 17 and one 33 round magazine. Thankfully, I am still legal with my two ten rounds mags. Ha ha ...lol.

Despite having to accept the non-standard magazines, I am very excited for my Glock 34. Since they actually had to take out the 17 RD mags, they said it could be up to three weeks.

Please start advising regarding sights and other accessories.

Welcome to the "Tactical/Practical" GLOCK world!

The G34 and G35 are probably my favorite handguns.

The only accessory you need is ammo.

Congratulations on your purchase, and congrats on finding an OD one while they last!

Good stuff, you will enjoy it. All you really need is some good sights. I prefer the FO front plain rear or black on black with the following makers.

Warren
Sevigny

Welcome into the G34 club! The only thing that really needs changing is the sights. Dawson F.O./Heinie user here.

Everything else is pretty useable.

A 34 or 17 are high on my priority list. Congrats! Just use her for a while before trying to replace parts. Especially if this is your first Glock.

Good choice, I have a Glock 34 myself, even though the Glock 34 shoots very well out of the box, I've changed a few parts and found it even shoots better, Trigger assembly by Vanek,swapped in a lone wolf barrel, ZevTech extended recoil guide rod in bronze for weight,11 lb. ISMI recoil spring,added a brass plug in grip with a grip plug,and Dave Sevigny sights.Competition wise I can't enter in production ,but it is fun to shoot ,it double taps like a 1911,doesn't bounce all over the place due to the weight,shoots even tighter groups after barrel swap. Also a big plus on barrel swap is I can shoot lead all day long and not have to worry about fouling up the barrel. Overall I feel Glocks are a great product,best bang for the buck,and very "ADDICTING",now I'm going to step up to a Glock 35.

Being a Glock nut myself the 34 is on my short list. (after a 27)....And I like the OD look.! I have black Glocks from 1987. (Smooth grip, nice fit)

Good luck

WOW....great sight picture and a great target. When I rented the Glock at the t just seemed like it was connect-the-dots with the G34.

Wow....I can give a link for the OD 34 if anyone wants it.

I think it will be worth very penny spent:

Let me know.

Congrats on the G34. Very nice purchase. Once you get it, make sure you get out to an IDPA match!

I have the Warren Tactical FO front with plain rear on my G34. I highly recommend this combo for a competition gun. These are the sights shown in l8apex's post of the sight picture. If it is for carry, check out the carry sight version of the same sights (they are night sights).

I would also highly recommend the TruGrip from ericwesselman.com.

I can almost guarantee you will not want to put this gun down!:)

I recommend the Glockworx Complete Drop in Trigger Kit (http://www.glockwarehouse.com/Standard_Complete_Trigger_Kit_p/zt-std-c.htm). It's a little expensive ($130), but instantly takes the trigger pull weight down substantially and improves take-up and reset. Really makes the gun a nice shooter.

I would not recommend an after-market barrel unless you plan to shoot lead bullets. The factory barrel is more than accurate enough for everything other than bullseye shooting.

+1 The Glockworx kit is a must, and no, you don't need a match barrel.
