The GLOCK 34 Gen 4 MOS Configuration is identical to the G17 Gen 4 except for the machined slide that accepts a scope. If you own a MOS and decide you don’t want optics, you don’t have to use optics – just put on the cover plate and use with the standard iron sights.
As successor of the G34 introduced in 1998 the Glock 34 Gen4 MOS is a competition ready 9mm pistol. Designed to be the same overall length as the Government Model 1911 pistol the main differences between the full size Model G17 and the long slide Model G34 include a 5.32″ barrel for the 34 (0.82″ longer than the 17) with corresponding longer slide, extended magazine and slide releases and a reduced trigger pull. Naturally the longer slide results in a longer sight radius and a slightly better balance of the pistol, resulting in quicker recovery between shots. These are also attributes that are desirable for tactical use as well and Glock refers to this model as the “Tactical/ Practical.”
Like all 4th Generation Glock’s, the Glock 34 MOS has the modular back strap design that lets you instantly customize its grip to adapt to an individual shooter’s hand size. The surface of the frame employs the new rough textured technology. Internally, the new Glock dual recoil spring assembly substantially increases the life of the system. A reversible enlarged magazine catch, changeable in seconds, accommodates left or right-handed shooters.
