Firearm Forum Question: How to Disassemble, Reassemble, and Clean a Glock Handgun

Ask A Firearms Question:
Can you provide a video on how to Disassemble, Reassemble, and Clean a Glock 17?
Thank you Hitman at Large

Glock Model 17, 9mm

Glock Model 30, 45 ACP


Answer:

Blog Administrator -
The Glock is a unique handgun in several ways: 1) It's the only major handgun manufacturer that does not make a 22 caliber; 2) All Glock models regardless of the caliber or model disassemble and reassemble exactly the same; 3) There are plenty of 3rd party manufacturers that supply after market parts and options for most of the Glock models.
I have included two Youtube videos, one shows the proper method of Disassembly and Reassembly of a Glock Handgun; the second video shows how to Clean a Glock Handgun using the latest methodology.

The Disassemble and Reassemble of a Glock Model 17 Handgun.

Remember, this method works on ALL Glock models.

Latest method of cleaning a Glock Handgun:
It should be noted, in my opinion, that using a composite cleaning and lubricant is still quite okay.
Note: I own a Glock Model 30, 45 ACP, and have not personally tried this method yet but I plan too.

  4. My husband and I both own a Glock 17, we have 10,000 rounds of 9mm on hand. He says it's hunker down time. So I guess it's better to be prepared than not.

    I am a GLOCK owner and proud of it .
    Never had an issue, no jams, no problems .
    I use all Glock accessories including magazines, no 3rd party stuff for me .
    I do agree, wish Glock would make a 22 caliber I would buy one asap .
    Great set of videos .
    Have tried all kinds of cleaning on my 2 Glock handguns, guess I will try the baby approach next .

  26. I like this forum better than most Glock related forums,whereby a lot of people babel and complain all the time or issue poor advise to new gun owners. Your site sticks to the issues and is helpful to Glock owners.
    My only comment is that Glocks seem to shoot high,especially until you get use to them. Also they are damn tight until you break them in, around 1,000 rounds.

    1. Why thank you for your candor and posted comment. Yes, new Glocks seem to be quite tight.

  27. I must say I like this approach to a Firearms Forum, there seems to be less blah blah blah in comments and more direct responses to the Topic posted.

    Many believe that the Glock 9mm is a waste of money and that the 40 Caliber is a better choice, personally Mr, Firearms Guy I have a Glock 9mm and 45 AC, and I like my options because the ammunition is easier to find for a 9mm and 45 ACP than for a 40 S&W, at least where I live.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree, for awhile the 40 S&W was difficult to find. The 9mm is readily available and the 45 acp has better stopping power. The 45 acp also suppresses better if you ever decide to buy a suppressor (silencer)

  30. I recently moved to NYC where as you know handguns are prohibited, so I had to sell off my Glock Model 17 before coming to New York (sigh). If I still had my Glock this would be a great help.

    I am also finding out Google says my email acct with hotmail has issues and they want me to change it, so this will probably be my last post. I did manage to follow you here on your site.

  35. I own a Glock model 17 and love it. I have around 3,000 rounds of ammo on hand. It is my home defense weapon.
    For personal carry I own a Ruger SR22 and really love that, so damn accurate. Wish 22 rounds were more readily available and easier to get. Damn Wal-Mart.

    1. Great choice in handguns. And the 22's are more caused by the damn resellers (gaugers). But yes, I agree Wal-Mart Sucks.
