    You can't really "improve" a Glock. You can however put on different sights or install a lighter trigger bar or different slide release lever, which you might find preferable over the original ones. This does not improve a pistol, but might make it more to your liking.

    Problems to look out for are unusual cosmetic defects, missing or replaced parts, rear sights that are too close to either side of the slide, or poor functioning. If it functions correctly and looks like it's been taken care of, I don't think you could go wrong.

    When you get a quote on the used one, make sure to do your research. I just bought used & talked the seller down $75 on my G26 based on the fact that I could get a new one just down the road for $509.

    40.000 round is usually not any problem, 50.000-60.000 might work fine but your barrel might be worn out. (as for 9mm)
    change springs and barrel and you will be good to go for another 40.000 rounds, then the frame would look raped and you would like to replace it..
    A change of mainspring every 5000 shots would lenghten the life of the gun and is recommended, a cheap thing to do, otherwise the frame will take the beating.

    Buy the previously owned G-34 and use the money that you save to purchase ammo. You'll need the extra $$ the way the market is going right now.

    Good luck talking down the price on a G-34!
