Glock Striker Disassembly

Glock Striker disassembly or firing pin disassembly is easy. You simply use the slide as a support for the striker to remove the cups and the spring from the striker. I made a You Tube video to aid you in disassembling and assembling the striker.

Glock Striker Disassembly

Turn the slide up on the muzzle end and insert your Striker in Reverse of what it normally is inserted into the rear of the slide. The strikers lug will set on the ledge of the slide, allowing you to exert downward pressure on the spring and remove the two half cups from the striker. Once these two half cups have been removed, you can allow the spring to extend his full length and remove it and the Striker from the slide. Once the striker is free, remove the plastic sleeve from the striker and clean the striker and the inside of the sleeve.

Reassembly Is Opposite of Disassembly

Setting the slide up on its muzzle end once again, slide the sleeve back onto the striker. Pay close attention that the cut out in the sleeve slides around the striker lug. Insert the striker and sleeve again backwards into the slide. Replace the spring and pull it down.

Pay attention to where the end of the spring coil appears. You do not want the split cup to line up with the end of the spring coil. You want one half of the cup completely covering this area. Reinsert the cups with the lip side up and the smaller ends inside the spring. Once these cups are inserted, you can slowly release the tension on the spring and it will stay together and stay in position.

At this point you simply reassemble the firearm. Make sure and check it for function.
