    Glock 19 question

    Just bought a glock 19 gen 4. I've only fired 50 rounds. I've taken it apart several times, but every time I attempt to take it apart I have to push the slide forward, then try again. The 'pins' on the side that are meant to be pulled down, mine seemed to take a lot of work to pull down compared to videos I've watched. Will this change over time? Or is there something I else I should be doing? Or oiling?

    Thanks for all words of help!

    You want to make sure that the chamber is empty and then pull the trigger. That will help in easing the slide forward. The spring shouldn't be hard to pull down although I find the stock release tough to get a good grip on. Just pull the slide to the rear a fraction, pull down the release and the slide should slide right off. If those steps don't help maybe there is a problem with the release spring.

    The slide lock should be fairly easy to maneuver from the factory. Now that I am sitting here looking at it there is a little sweet spot that it is easier to maneuver then any where else. On my gun I just have to move the slide back just a little bit and the slide lock moves more freely. If you need any more help just ask my friend,

    There is a sweet spot, so to speak...The more you take it down, you'll be amazed how easy it gets..it was more the coordination of that
    sequence thing at first...It's easy to overthink it...it gets easier to do as you practice it...



    Glock softly and leave your big stick at home...

    Just 1/8" I think. Sweet spot for sure. Never had a problem with my compact or full-sized models, but the subs can be tight at times

    Good, strong fingernails help, too.

    Cobrien, Get online and purchase an extended slide stop lever (ESSL). I have them on all 3 of my glocks and they are worth the $10 each I paid for them.

    Good shooting,

    Mike
