My buddy was moving away and he left me a lot of stuff.

I was rummaging through everything when I saw a Glock Tupperware Box marked “Parts only”.

When I opened the big box and saw the Tupperware, I was thinking it had like a trigger/trigger bar, Connector, Guide rod and maybe some spare slide stops. Then I see a slide, a receiver, barrel mag release and virtually everything else and I thought, This is a nearly complete gun in pieces!!

The whole time I thought Hotel Delta! The slide was pristine but the grip looked like someone buried it in clay. Hahahaha



I proceeded to clean it up and assemble everything and it had almost all of the parts. My friend, an armorer, took a look at everything and said for me to clean each part thoroughly.

Turns out a broken Mag Release Spring was stuck in the channel. It was discovered after removing years of funk and debris.



I proceeded to use a pick and the thinnest needle nosed pliers I had, and Voila! Put it came.


Needless to say, I installed everything back in. I tested its function and test fired it.

Worked like a charm.

It needs new sights, and probably a new barrel.


But my box of ammo went through without a hitch.

All I replaced were the connector, slide lock and rear plate, in addition to the Mag release spring.

I posted the maiden voyage on my backyard range in Instagram. Definitely worked and it was on target. I was hitting my IDPA steel, Dueling tree and Arntzen 12 inch steel. I tried to make it fail by shooting some doubles and it ran like a charm.

Wow! What a find! Looks like a Gen 4 G19. You might should go to the Glock Store and get one of their emergency kits (has pins, parts, springs, etc) in a nice case (if you don't have one already, that is).

Congrats of the great find!! :thumb:

You had to assemble it?

I thought with Glucks all you had to do was scatter the parts on the table and say, "Wonder Nine powers, activate!":p

Just remember, it's top load only in the dish washer.

You mean these guys?



I did think it was strange that the short one always seem to have a galvanized steel bucket close by, though.
