How To Disassemble The Slide of a Glock 19

In the above You Tube video, I show you how to  disassemble and clean the slide of a Glock 19. Some people have never cleaned the internal components of their Glock slide because they are afrade they might damage something or not be able to re-assemble the gun. Fear no more. I am going to show you how to disassemble, clean and re-assemble the slide on a Glock. It is simple. The glock firearm was designed for easy disassembly and re-assembly with a minimum amount of tools.

  • First and foremost, remove the magazine and check the chamber. Check and re-check the chamber to make sure the gun is empty.
  • Next, pulling slightly back on the slide, pull both sides of the slide release down. Let the slide come forward, removing it from the frame. Set it aside.
  • Turning the slide over, you will see the firing pin or striker assembly and channel. Forward of the striker lug you will find a black spring cup. Using a Glock armors tool or a small pin punch, insert the punch behind the cup and push it forward, holding it in place.
  • With the striker spring held forward, slide the back cover or plate form the slide, keeping you finger over the void.
  • Once the slide is removed, slide the firing pin or striker from the slide along with the extractor rod and spring.
  • Also on the bottom, but in the middle, is the round trigger safety plunger. Push it down to remove it. If it doesn't pop up, manipulate the extractor some until it comes free. You may have to tap the the slide on a table lightly to remove it.
  • Next, remove the extractor. It has a pin on the back side but is free at this point. You may have to tap the slide on it's side to remove it also.
