The one is 1992 and the other is 1999...

Yea, have that! But it's not the Glock Armorer's manual!

http://stevespages.com/pdf/glock_armorers_manual.pdf

If you want to be a Glock Armorer or just "glock trained" this is the manual you need to study
:) Either will get the person started!

The Official has the same information.

They both beat the trip and leave money left in ones pocket.

That is how I learned plus having someone who went to the course supervise me working on Sheriff Office Guns.

Hope everyone is home from last night with No bad effects.

Granddaughter 7 up at 6:30 am then me wife 10 minutes after and the Major PIA 5 year old up 8:30 am Great! :cool:

In bed around three AM. Talking with friends and family over a cold drink at the house. 4 year old up at 7:00, AS ALWAYS. My wife actually let me doze back off till about 9:30. I'm sure I'll have to pay for that later. :)

I think its all kind of humorous, glocks are quite simply the the best and easiest design to break down and make modifications to...Requiring an armorers course for a glock seems strange to me, unless you work in a shop and is required by your employer.

Well, I see your point, but there's another good reason for getting the certificate, and that is that you can buy Glock parts at a big discount. The simplest path to the Armorer class is to join GSSF, and when you do that you get a pistol discount certificate, so that's not all bad. We also get an occasional printed update from Glock, not to mention the official manual.

I have to say that even though I could perform all of the maintenance and replacement tasks before I went to the Armorer course, I really enjoyed the day and the exposure to very experienced instructors (including Dennis Tueller). We heard some pretty good "war stories" about working on Glocks in the class, things I would never have learned any other way. Getting to work on a Glock all day, going through every single operation repeatedly, gives you the confidence to work on other people's guns. At least it gave me that confidence, knowing without doubt that I was doing the work the right way.

Do they teach you an easy way to get those cups on when you're changing the striker spring? I was putting on a striker spring last night. With oily hands and firing pin, trying to compress that spring to get the cups in place ... very frustrating ... had to resort to my spare set of cups after losing one that hit the ceiling ...:)

Yes, there's a trick to how you position the striker when you want to replace the spring: you use the slide as a holding fixture.

Look at these instructions (http://www.glocktriggers.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/GlockTriggers_Disassembly_Reassembly.pdf), there are five pages entitled "Replacing the Firing Pin Spring" that show the technique. You still need to be careful, but the job is a whole lot easier if you follow these instructions.

Thanks. That's a good pdf to have.

LOL ! Did the froglube job to the 17 yesterday and while wiping down the striker it slid out of the patch ... then I wrestled with the cups for another 15 minutes before getting them on.

I finally cleaned my hands so I could get a good grip on things and was able to compress the spring while holding the striker in one hand and insert one cup first to hold the spring and then it is a piece of cake to compress the spring while inserting the other cup.

Hey Chris Thanks for the pdf its a nice reference to have. I love to have as many reference tools as I can.
You're welcome. GlockTriggers did a nice job with that one. If you have questions about part numbers or fitting details, ask away. I'm sure you can get some useful answers from this forum.
