    I recently got a great deal on a used Glock 34, and I'm thinking about putting a laser sight on it. Looking at most of the laser web sites, they specify "not for Gen 4 Glocks" on many laser models. How can I tell if I have a Gen 4 Glock 34? Nothing on the pistol says anything about it, and I have none of the original paperwork. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    A pic would help.

    But I don't think the G-34 is available in "Gen 4" configuration yet. A quick internet search will turn up a pic of a Gen 4 gun, so you can determine it for yourself.

    You do not have a GEN4. The laser will fit fine.

    Your 34 is a GEN3 BTW.

    Reaper - How do you know? Is it like David E says, and they don't even make a Gen 4 model 34 yet?

    Because Glock only made the Tactical/Practical models (34/35) in GEN3. They were introduced in 1998; the GEN3 alterations took place in 1997~.

    Have faith, young apprentice of the Glock. *waves hand*

    Thanks, Reaper, that's exactly what I needed to know. Gotta laugh out of the "young" apprentice thing - the reason I'm thinking of a laser is I'm too old to see the iron sights!

    Lasermax fits like a glove......

    The lasermax unit on my G34 tucks up nicely to the trigger guard when secured in the indexing slot. Very easy to touch the controls with either index finger........;)
