Obtaining the greatest accuracy for target engagement was the decisive reason for the development of the GLOCK 34 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.
As a bonus, the 34 generally has the longest barrel allowable in most competition divisions at 5.31 inches. Plus, it has polygonal rifling. The marketing department at GLOCK will tell you that makes the pistol more accurate due to increased velocity of the bullet compared to conventional rifling
The Glock 34 is one of the best guns for when you don’t give a darn about concealment. It’s one of the best competition platforms out there, full stop. It’s one of the best home defense pistols you could have. A number of SWAT teams issue them to their officers, so it is a good fighting pistol.
