    The Humpty Dumpty Glock and putting it back together again

    My buddy was moving away and he left me a lot of stuff.

    I was rummaging through everything when I saw a Glock Tupperware Box marked “Parts only”.

    When I opened the big box and saw the Tupperware, I was thinking it had like a trigger/trigger bar, Connector, Guide rod and maybe some spare slide stops. Then I see a slide, a receiver, barrel mag release and virtually everything else and I thought, This is a nearly complete gun in pieces!!

    The whole time I thought Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! Hotel Delta! The slide was pristine but the grip looked like someone buried it in clay. Hahahaha



    I proceeded to clean it up and assemble everything and it had almost all of the parts. My friend, an armorer, took a look at everything and said for me to clean each part thoroughly.

    Turns out a broken Mag Release Spring was stuck in the channel. It was discovered after removing years of funk and debris.



    I proceeded to use a pick and the thinnest needle nosed pliers I had, and Voila! Put it came.

    Needless to say, I installed everything back in. I tested its function and test fired it.

    Worked like a charm.

    It needs new sights, and probably a new barrel.

    But my box of ammo went through without a hitch.

    All I replaced were the connector, slide lock and rear plate, in addition to the Mag release spring.

    I posted the maiden voyage on my backyard range in Instagram. Definitely worked and it was on target. I was hitting my IDPA steel, Dueling tree and Arntzen 12 inch steel. I tried to make it fail by shooting some doubles and it ran like a charm.

    I was very impressed and interested until I saw the IG plug.

    What makes you think it needs a new barrel? I have a friend who has put over 10,000 rounds through his 17, and the barrel looks great.

    Do you have to go through an FFL for a pistol transfer in your state?

    I need a threaded barrel since I am getting my Suppressor next month.

    CDR Glock: That first picture is nice looking.

    Thanks. It was a funny find. I wish I made a video but when I saw the box I didn’t expect much in it.

    Yeah, he’s a great guy.

    He sold me his performance center 44 Magnum 629, along with an Aimpoint and a Dillon 450 progressive press with components for about 1500 rounds of ammo for $1100. It was my Deal of the Century. I have since gone to acquiring 2 more 44 Magnums, 3 454 Casull, and 1 Smith 500.
