GLOCK 34

The GLOCK 34 Obtaining the greatest accuracy for target engagement was the decisive reason for the development of the G34 with its extended barrel, longer slide dimensions and elongated distance between sights. This highly-accurate pistol has found widespread use as a competitive pistol for IPSC and other shooting sports, but is also a mainstay in many SWAT teams.

History of Glock 34

The company’s founder, head engineer Gaston Glock, had no experience with firearms design or manufacture at the time their first pistol, the Glock 17, was being prototyped. Glock had extensive experience in advanced synthetic polymers, which was instrumental in the company’s design of the first commercially successful line of pistols with a polymer frame.[10] Glock introduced ferritic nitrocarburizing into the firearms industry as an anticorrosion surface treatment for metal gun parts.[11]

Barrel

The hammer-forged barrel has a female type polygonal rifling with a right-hand twist. The stabilization of the round is not by conventional rifling, using lands and grooves, but rather through a polygonal profile consisting of a series of six or eight interconnected noncircular segments (only the .45 ACP and .45 GAP have octagonal polygonal rifling). Each depressed segment within the interior of the barrel is the equivalent of a groove in a conventional barrel. Thus, the interior of the barrel consists of smooth arcs of steel rather than sharply defined slots.

 

 Glock 34 Safty


Glock pistols lack a traditional on-off safety lever, which Glock 34 markets as an advantage, especially to police departments, as the user is able to fire immediately without separately manipulating a safety.[69] Instead, the pistols are designed with three independent safety mechanisms to prevent accidental discharge. The system, designated “Safe Action” by Glock, consists of an external integrated trigger safety and two automatic internal safeties: a firing pin safety and a drop safety.[70]

Sights

Standard sighting arrangement of a “first-generation” Glock 17

The first Glock pistols sent to the United States in 1985 failed to meet the BATF import “points” requirement, requiring Glock to quickly develop an adjustable rear sight which allowed for the pistols to be imported and sold commercially in 1986.

These first-generation adjustable rear sights extended past the slide and were susceptible to breaking.[73] Even on later models, the front sight can easily become misshapen from friction against the holster,[74] leading to replacements with metal sights, or tritium illuminated night sights.
