Tusker,
Glock "perfection" they don't need no stinkeen cleaning.
After a zillon rounds or so, just throw em out in the yard and hit em with the water hose and squirt a little WD-40 on em.
Be good to go another zillon rounds or so.

m58 may have been speaking "tongue in cheek" about the zillion rounds and no cleaning, but the truth is, you really don't have to clean them often.

They don't rust, they always work and I have one, a Model 19, I use for CCW Classes that just shoots and shoots and shoots. I clean it when I am too embarrassed to let students see it.

However, if I used it for a carry gun, I would clean it every time I shot it. But for training, why bother-it works.

The worst thing you can do to a Glock is over lubricate or use volitile solvents that can mix with carbon buildup to dry and gum up the striker spring/firing pin assembly and channel in the slide.

Glock barrels have that polygonal rifling and the company warns against shooting lubricated cast bullets - recommending plated or jacketed bullets only - so no greasy cast bullet lube fouling to worry about having to clean up. (Some folks shoot cast bullets anyway with little or no problem. ;) )

Remove the mag. and eject the round from the chamber, field strip the weapon, scrub out the barrel, slide, and innards with the large nylon brush provided, wipe everything thoroughly with a clean rag, apply a hypodermic drop of your favorite light gun oil to the critical 7 lubrication points, and then re-assemble. That's all that should be required for 1000s and 1000s of rounds of normal use.

Here is a tutorial on disassembly of a Glock for when it does become necessary - at 5000+ rounds or maybe more.

Sorry Tusker, but thats how things work out...you can only do so much, and then they have to go and do things on their own....yes, I too have a son that the first gun he buys "on his own", is a Glock......in a 9mm no less....poor boy.. ~x(

Tusk, dont worry about it. People don't realize what they have sometimes. Your collection you have shown us is amazing. Kids do crazy stuff. My uncle stole a pie from a neighbor once, my grandfather owned a bakery. My friend Chris, his dad owned a mexican restaurant, he would eat at Mcdonalds. Sounds the same but at least your collection is safe for now. James

I think that there are lot of closet Glock owners here. I have a model 19,27, and a 30. A guy at one of my shops says that he puts his in the dishwasher. I don't think that I would go that far.

Posted on another forum:

Do not use the dishwasher. I know some have done it and I know some advice it. After a certain temperature, I have been informed that the hot water will affect the frame over time with water eventually get into the frame molecules.

Following is a quote from a knowledgeable source at the highroad:
"Glock frames are made using a stablized, modified polyamide called Nylon 66 which is a pretty stable polymer. As long as you keep it clear of very hot water (which causes hydrolytic degradation of the polymer) and strong acids/bases, you can use just about any "gun specific" cleaning solvent to clean your frame without concern."

What is wrong with a Glock? I have one a model 17 and I did shoot lead out of it. What a mistake 2 hours later I was still trying to get the lead out!! :twisted:

I bought a storm barrel for it and now shoot lead all the time with no problems. Cleans upi like a regular gun Tusker. Hoppes #9 works fine for me and a little breakfree for lube.

My Tupperware gun.
