I would like some thoughts on the 24. Pro's and con's. I am considering buying one since I already have a G23.

Pros = every thing!

Cons = nothing!

It is AWESOME!

any issues with the guide rod? It's considerably shorter than the slide. I'm no armorer but it seems it may bind the rod and spring when it comes out of battery.

Not at all.. they run like a champ.. I have a very light ghost rocket set up in it... recoil is soft as hell

Sorry I know this pic is dark

that's all I needed to hear, if I do buy the 24 it will be a range/house gun. My local FFL has 3 of them, I really like the sight radius. The particular one I held had factory adj. sights and an extended slide release, is that standard on the 24?

From what I know they all come standard with adjustable sights and the extended slide release.and a 3.5lb connector although I put a ghost rocket in with very light springs.. the thing is a freakin tack driver... I shoot so well with it, its scary.

Its one of my favorite guns and I would NEVER sell it. Plus you can get conversion barrels from lone wolf to shoot 9mm and 357 sig if you want to go totally nuts. :supergrin:

I wasn't aware of the 3.5 lb connector. I am now convinced I need this gun! I just hope my FFL still has one by this weekend.

They are great. Only thing possibly better in the Glock line is the 17L, but they seem to be even less available than the 24. If the price is right, do it.

The price on the tag says $649 but I think I can get it a little cheaper (if they still have one). Any idea as to why Glock doesn't have the 24 on their website? I wasn't aware of its existence until a
friend told me about it.

I was told that they aren't listed on the website because the G17L and, the G24 are "limited production" pistols. But, the G24 is an awesome range gun.

I have been saving my pennies for a while. My local FFL has a layaway, so if they still have one this weekend, it's mine.

Its a cool pistol for sure, though I'm not much of a 40 fan.

Hmmmm, holster options seemed to be limited but I suppose one for a G22 would work well enough for the range.:dunno:

If open bottom holster it will work. My crossbreed 9mm/40sw/357sig holster works for mine. Not really easy to concel the 24.
The 24 is my fav range gun. Love my 10mms but 40sw brass is alot easier to come across so it gets more range time due to that.

They are nice. Could not believe how good it shoots.
Since I have not found a 17L locally I bought the
LWD 40-9 barrel and it is awesome. .40 shoots great but 9mm is cheaper for the range. Trigger is super(for Glock).
I don't shoot left with it.:supergrin:
I put talon grips on mine.

Hope one is left. Be sure to post a range report when you get it.

I hope they still have one too, I don't see many people shopping for one in my area (at least I hope not). I don't have children and my bills are paid up, so we'll see what happens this Saturday.

I'm sure you'll get it... for all of its awesomeness its still a "niche" gun and will have limited mass appeal... it'll still be there...

I bought one in September of last year and have shot my 23 exactly 3 times since.

I replaced the junk factory adjustable sights with Dawson Precision(made by Truglo) adjustable fiber optics, added a GHOST Rocket and comp spring kit, TOP GLOCK magwell and brass slug, glockworkx v4 striker, glockworkx extended stainless guide rod, and the wolff reduced recoil spring kit to custom fit a wide array of handload power factors.

It rocks.

I just found and purchased a Glock 24 last week. I have a G22 and a G23, and the 24 is my idea of Glock perfection.

I am quite impressed with the difference in the include 3.5# connector in the 24, along with the increased sight radius and balance. I have no idea why the 24 isn't more popular with the regular shooting public, but it is by far my favorite.

I have a LWD 9mm conversion barrel on the way for 9mm fun as well.

@ will hunt I have a G23 as well and I love it. Eventually (hopefully) I will have a G22 & a G27. I called my FFL today, they still have 3 G24's. I like the .40 caliber round so may as well have the whole line up. I think the reason the G24 isn't more popular is because folks don't know about it. I have talked to two friends in the last 2 days that are VERY into guns, and they didn't know the G24 even existed. I'm pretty excited about getting one.

@ tosh bar Forgive my ignorance but what is a GHOST rocket? I've only been on this website for a few days but I can already tell there are alot of friendly folks here with heaps of knowledge.

04-19-2012, 19:32
MY only complaint about the ones I have handled is it seems muzzle heavy to be and balance suffers. Thats why I went with the 35. The 24 was still very nice.

It's a connector with a built in overtravel stop. It reduces trigger pull and you custom fit it into your gun to reduce overtravel(distance trigger travels after the break), and thus reducing reset distance(distance for the connector to reengage when the trigger moves forward) to almost zero.

I did in fact get the 24 and finally got some range time a couple of weeks ago with it. To sum the G24 up in one word: Awesome. I love it but it does not like TulAmmo steel case FMJ's. I had no failure to feed or eject issues but the powder charge was barely enough to cycle the slide and the POI was way lower than where I was aiming. Maybe I just got a bad lot of ammo but I won't buy anymore....

Congrats! I am thinking about picking one up. I currently own a 17L and it is one of my favorite guns.

That's good to know because I was hoping it wasn't just my G24 not liking TulAmmo.

Did you try adjusting the sight? You should have a tiny screwdriver in the box.

Also, your Red Label probably says "ADJ 4.5LB". Glock has rated their minus connector at 4.5 lbs for a couple of years.

12-05-2012, 21:26
@tonyparson, I thought at first it was just one or two rounds of the Tulammo that were weak. I shot 3 boxes of it and they were all the same. Low recoil and no accuracy. I even shot a mag out of my 23 just to see if it made a difference, needless to say it didn't. ya get what ya pay for.....

patriot73
12-05-2012, 21:34
@SARDG, I do have the small screwdriver but there was no need for it. the sights are accurate from the factory. if I could figure out how to post pics I would post some that I shot at 25 yards with Winchester FMJ's.

I'm planning to get a 357 SIG barrel, for mine. The muzzle velocity should be quite respectful.

The slide length doesn't bother me, too much, for carry. I just need to pull slightly higher, since the frame is the same as a G17.

patriot73
12-05-2012, 21:53
the 24 is somewhat "muzzle heavy" being it's a 6 inch barrel but for my needs, it's fine.

DarkShooter
12-05-2012, 22:04
Id love to have one of these to go with my 17L. Im hoping I can find an FFL that can get me one when I got the cash.

12-05-2012, 22:07
I was thinking the TulAmmo wasn't cycling right in my G24 because it was ported. I've been carrying mine for the last week and half just to see if I could or not. It carries real nice in a crossbreed holster.

In my opinion the G35 has more going for it. It's lighter, balances better, has a rounded nose, and is cheaper(also available blue label/GSSF)

I like the 35 much better, also. The longer barrel, with 357 SIG is an attractive thought. though.

It's lighter, balances better, has a rounded nose, and is cheaper(also available blue label/GSSF)I have both (in Gen3 form), and I agree with this statement wholeheartedly. For competition or target-range ONLY use, the 24/24P/24C are fine, but if carry or defense enter the picture, then I think the G35 is a better choice to cover all potential needs.

The Gen4 G35 might even top the Gen3 G35 as a selection here, due to the slight reduction in muzzle flip due to the new dual RSA (it's a small difference, but it is real; most folks need to shoot the guns side-by-side, one right after the other, or alternate back-and-forth, to notice it).

I don't know why people waste money buying that garbage TULammo that stuff sucks....my glocks hate them spend the extra money and get better quality that way you can actually see how well performing the G24 or G17L is!!!

I bought it because Walmart was out of all other .40 ammo. Ill agree its junk and will never be loaded any of my Glock mags again.

A magwell or weight in the hollow part of the grip will probably help the balance some.

A G24 with a .357sig barrel is on my list.

They're very nice, I'd like a Gen4 version. I have a KKM G24 barrel in my Gen4 G35, that's about as close as it's gonna get for me. I've had two, first I had the 24C, but I didn't like how it sooted up the front sight, so I much preferred the regular 24. Here's an old pic I found of the 24C

229483 these are a few shots from my 24 at 25 yards, not as impressive grouping as Hawker Man's though. but my grouping, or lack thereof is by no means the fault of the gun.
