Glock 17 disassembly, trigger job and reassembly – Part 1
In Part 1 of this post we will, after a safety check of course, do a complete disassembly of a Glock 17 Gen-4 semiautomatic pistol. The purpose of this whole post is to install a competition spring set and a 3 1/2 lbs connector to the Glock 17.
As I always preach in all my courses, you should know your firearm inside and out. If you own a Glock pistol and have been afraid to do a complete teardown because you might not be able to put it back together then this is what you have been waiting for. As an owner of a pistol, whether revolver or semiautomatic, you should at the minimum do a complete teardown once a year and completely clean every nook and cranny of that firearm.
I tend to do it more often because I run my guns hard. I also run whatever ammo I can get my hands on, dirty or not. If I am going to run a thousand rounds through my gun for training, I would rather buy cheap ammo and have to do a better cleaning than buy cleaner more expensive ammo and still have to clean my firearm. Think of it this way, cheap dirty ammo can for a 9mm should cost around $200 to $230 per thousand. If you buy clean good ammo, you would spend $300 to $350 per thousand. You can get an extra 500 rounds to fire off by going with the cheap ammo and just take a little more time cleaning your gun when you get back to the rear.
Enjoy and look for Part 2 when I disassemble the frame.
