Chandler, AZ – Reviewing the Glock 9MM 34 GEN3 Handgun | Shooting Range News

When it was released in 1998, the Glock Gen 3 series offered new features and accessories that made it more marketable to shooters of all kinds. However, it’s advertisement as “engineered to give you an unfair advantage” made it even more desirable for competitive shooters, and it remains so to this day. Let’s get into a more detailed review to see if it stacks up to its reputation.

Weighing in at 25.04 ounces and 8.22” long, the Glock 34 is light enough to carry while remaining bit enough to have a solid grip on the slide before firing a round. It’s longer barrel (5.3”) helps it maintain impressive accuracy with an average target tag within 2” at 25 yards. It’s length also contributes to greater slide dimension options. There are serrations on the front and rear to ensure a firm grip in any position. The Glock has a standard 17 magazine round hold, and really only needs to be lubricated every 500 rounds or so. This makes it relatively low maintenance, and easy to remain reliable without needing to give it much attention.

Another desirable aspect of the Glock 34 is its use of airsoft technology. It helps the slide automatically lock back with each shot allowing for speedy target acquisition. It also contributes to the Glock’s impressive accuracy and accessibility to fire multiple rounds without reloading. It’s got a softer recoil compared to other Glock Gen 3 models which is what really sets it apart for shooting sports. The kick is less making it pretty easy to get a solid sight picture quickly between rounds allowing for faster and accurate follow-up shots.

The Glock 34 comes with three different trigger modes: safe action, single action, and two-stage. The safe action means that after the first pull of the trigger a trigger and drop safety mechanism engage so the pistol will not fire even if the trigger is pulled again. This is great for beginning shooters who are learning to fire multiple rounds one after another but want to remain safe and not accidentally do them too quickly or wildly.

The other two modes do not have the safety engage but have a lighter pull on the firing pin to continue the rapid multiple round firing. It takes more practice to ensure the pistol is only fired when intended, but this aspect makes this pistol great for advancing as the shooter’s skills advance without needing to invest in another firearm.

For all that it gives, the Gen 3 Glock 34 is a classic Glock built for accuracy and reliability. These are the aspects that make it a popular choice for shooting competitors. However, it can be great for shooters of all skill levels and has been proven to be an asset in street self-defense situations. It was created for accurate shooting, and it does that perfectly. With the Glock you get exactly what you are expecting, and even though the price can be a little high (around $630), it is well worth the investment if you are looking for accurate, reliable, and low maintenance pistol.
