I've picked up a Glock 34 and found I like a comped pistol better. With that said I looked at the lightning cut in the front of the slide and wondered if swapping in a ported barrel would act similarly to a comp?

Short answer: yes. I would buy a second barrel and have it ported, if you think you might ever sell/trade it. Most people don't want the porting in the 34, which is why Glock dropped it when they reissued the 17L as the 34.
Glock offers a series of ported models with the designation "C," as in G19C, G17C, etc. I can definitely see it jet upward when a shot is fired, and it's louder, but I don't perceive much change in the handling of the pistol.
Lone Wolf should offer exactly what you are looking for.
Every day, the New York Times carries a motto in a box on its front page. "All the News That's Fit to Print," it says. It's been saying it for decades, day in and day out. I imagine most readers of the canonical sheet have long ceased to notice this bannered and flaunted symbol of its mental furniture. I myself check every day to make sure that the bright, smug, pompous, idiotic claim is still there. Then I check to make sure that it still irritates me. If I can still exclaim, under my breath, why do they insult me and what do they take me for and what the hell is it supposed to mean unless it's as obviously complacent and conceited and censorious as it seems to be, then at least I know I still have a pulse. You may wish to choose a more rigorous mental workout but I credit this daily infusion of annoyance with extending my lifespan. -Christopher Hitchens
