    Hard to say... It depends somewhat on the quantity and size of the ports you choose... and the ammunition you shoot... If you put the holes on top of the barrel, you will lose some bullet velocity and lessen some of the vertical flip... that usually comes with a bit more push back against your hand...

    I have both and I like the 17L better. I think because they are so rare is what makes it appeal to me, most people have never held one. I plan on shooting both of them this weekend at the GSSF indoor match. I got this one just before Christmas.

    The 17L is a rare one. I've never had the chance to handle, let alone, shoot one.

    I have a 17, 19 MOS and 34 MOS. The 19 is for carry. I plan to compete with a 34 MOS.

    Have both. The 34 is a Gen4 MOS w/ deltapoint pro 2.5 moa dot on it. I like the Gen 4's better...little milder to shoot (dual recoil spring), little narrower front to back in the grip. Trigger on my 17L is a little heavier (the 34 came with zev connector in it & i think, zev springs...no issues, left them in there).
    Basically, I'll shoot the 17L some more. If it doesn't grow on me some more, it will be for sale long before the 34 will. I think the 6" barrel approaches the "unwieldy" range in a semi auto handgun....if they made a 6.5" or 7" version, I wouldn't be interested at all.
    I don't compete, just plink at the range. Gonna compare my accuracy with my regular 17 Gen4 and the 17L....if it isn't noticeably better, that will probably decide whether it's a keeper for me.

    I would think comparing accuracy would be almost impossible to do, at least I'm not sure how I would do it. The longer sight radius just reduces the effect of shooter sight picture error. That's hard to figure out in real life but can be calculated with a formula. I used to link an article that was a great explanation and showed the differences for each sight radius with the same error, but it now looks like someone else owns the domain name. I'll try to find another one.
