    How do the 9mm Glocks tolerate +P+ ammo?

    I'm a 45 die-hard, but nonetheless succumbed and just bought a G34. I want to leave at least +P in the gun, maybe +P+ Ranger if I can find it.

    Any stories out there about factory ammo KBs in the G34?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    I'll answer since your thread was about to fall off the front page.
    There is no SAAMI specification for +p+. It can mean pretty much anything.
    Your Glock 34 is rated for +p ammo, and with its long polygonal bore, +p ammo will shoot about as hard as 9mm can shoot.
    If you want maximum performance, take a look at Doubletap ammo. In 9mm it is rated +p, and is as hot as anything.

    Buffalo bore also maxes out the 9mm.
    There should be no worries about KB's in 9mm Glocks.

    PO2Hammer is dead on.

    The only way to know for sure is to contact the manufacturer of the particular +P+ ammunition you're interested in and ask them for the operating pressure of the ammunition. and then contact the gun manufacturer and ask them for the maximum operating pressure of the gun.

    RA9T is standard pressure and performs just fine

    No need to go to +p...not any more
