    So you could put the Glock beavertail on it, but not that Glockstore version to stay legal in Production??
  2. It seems there are G19 people and G17 people. I love my 17/34s, but the 19 sits. I would recommend a 17 as you can do anything from carry to compete with it. I have a Ghost Evo Elite connector in both my carry 17 and production division 34. Springs have been messed with in the 34 to bring the weight down. The 17 is stock except for the connector. They feel similar, but a bit heavier for the carry gun which was the goal. I've compared this to a Vogel trigger in a friend's 34 at our club and am very happy with my $40 trigger in comparison.
  3. I've run a 4.5# for 2 years in my 34. No issues at all. Running a 12# Wolff spring. 131-138 PF. Not to hijack, but I went from factory 17# straight to the 12#. Is there reason to use a mid weight (14-15#) if the 12 is reliable?
  4. I'm a 12# Wolff with oversize steel guide rod. 4.5# striker spring.
  5. Hey! I'm a B class local! No $200 trigger though. Ghost EVO connector, 4.5# striker spring, and reduced power safety plunger spring. I'm very happy with this. A guy in my club recently let me feel his 34 with a new Vogel trigger. I let him feel mine (trigger) after and his face showed which he liked best. (Of course my set up has lots and lots of live and dry fire which likely helps...)
  6. I agree. The factory Gen 3's were fine with me. The 4s/5s are larger, but don't protrude as much. I've run the Glock FBI release and the Tangodown by Vickers. I prefer the Vickers.
  7. I agree with Paul49. I walk into my local dealer with a cert, then walk out with my pistol.
  8. I used Talon's for several years and loved them! That is until I got serious about dry fire and gripping the gun hard. Seemed that they didn't last that long and at $17 a pop I decided to try skateboard tape. Bought a $6 roll/sheet which I have cut numerous sets of grips out of. In Louisiana and I probably change it out 3-4x per year.
  9. I'm late to this conversation, but I have had the Comp Tac and Blade Tech for my G34. To me the Blade Tech is worlds better. The Comp Tac relies on the detent gripping the trigger guard for retention. The rest of the holster is loose on the 34. The problem I found was that on occasion this slop in the holster allowed the gun to bind and hang up on the draw if you apply any torque when you grip. The Blade Tech has a much better "fit" to the gun. This is actually faster as there is seldom, if ever, any bind on the draw. Both of these were on the BOSS hanger btw. It may only be an issue on the Glocks as I felt the holster fit on a friend's Sig p320 in a Comp Tac and it felt pretty good.
  10. Cost: The gun is a bit high for me to make the jump without getting to shoot one first. Steel Frame: I'm glad to hear that I'm not completely nuts in not falling all over myself about less recoil in a heavy gun. I was able to put about 100 rounds through a friend's Tangfo and thought that recoil might have been a bit less, but much more sharp in feel than my 34. (That SA trigger was sweet though!) Options: Again, I'm only 2 years in, but I'm about to turn 50. The eyes aren't great and I can see (pun intended) trying out CO in the future. If I left Glock the Q5SF makes a lot of sense.
  11. I'm 2 years in to Production with a G34. Have been considering a Gen 5 MOS FS for the spring. I think I'll wait for now until I get the opportunity to fondle the Q5 SF. I don't have the desire to go to a DA/SA gun or the smithing that seems to be needed on them. A heavy striker gun with a good trigger might make me move from my beloved Glocks.
  12. Hope this is in the right location for question.. I am about to make the jump into reloading with a 650 for my growing production addiction. Looking at the Mini vs. full size bullet feeder. Better to buy once/cry once or start with the mini? The money is only part of the issue as I will also be jumping on the learning curve ride as I am a complete newbie. (Fortunately with friends who reload nearby!) Thanks for any input.
  13. I apologize for the question, but what is the recoil spring test? I'm fairly new shooting a G34 and have just started experimenting with springs.
  14. Bob Vogel is a proponent of a deep (and wide) rear notch. You can read his thoughts on this if you check out the add for his sights. Also talks about it on some you tube videos. Personally I went from the fairly shallow "U" notch 10-8 sights to a set of Sevigny's and much prefer the latter.
