Humpty Dumpty Glock

    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”. it has an entire fun except it was in parts. A few parts were missing, including a magazine....


    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.[​IMG]

    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.[​IMG]

    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.

    Well, we put Humpty Dumpty back together again so it was a big win.

    $50 night sights (sights worked but Tritium did not. Not essential but I was getting a can anyways)
    $20 Connector (not essential but the old one was pretty gritty feeling)
    $6 rear plate (not essential but it had tool marks from someone who didn’t know how to remove them)
    $10 slide lock (essential as the old one was out of shape)
    $30 Seattle Slug (grip plug) (nonessential but I had to try it after ready Bob Vogel’s experience with it)
    $3 Mag release spring (essential as the one was torn in half)

    $13 were essential. The others were aesthetic or extras.

    Not bad for a Gen 3 Glock 19

    Since you had the plate off, I'd get a Wolff striker spring in there... and clean / dry firing pin area. And get a fresh recoil spring. I got Wolf for that too with non-captured SST guide rod.
