Question, is the only difference between the G17 and the G34 the upper assembly? In other words, will the upper assembly of the G34 kit fit onto a G17 lower?

yes and yes. for glock oem though, i think the 34 comes with a lighter connector and an extended mag release.

So, this would be an option to turn my Gen3 G17 into a G34? then change it back on a whim?

It is my understanding that G34 and G17 frames are the same. I just switched my Gen5 G34 and G17 slides, and they both seemed to work just fine, and least for racking and dry fire.

My P80 was a 17, until I put the 34 slide on it, and it mostly works (the new 34 slide needs a little more wearing in, but it certainly fits).

So, I would say the short answer is yes
