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.

Hey, only the frame is top load only. And dry the guts with a hair dryer before lubricating.

And don't let the wife see you do it. You may have to clean carbon stuff out of the dishwasher before she gets home. And put the hair dryer back! A hair dryer on the work bench is a dead giveaway.

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.

Geez I consider it a miracle to get a free beer occasionally from a friend, let alone a whole pistol!
This.


I'm usually the "cool friend" that's giving stuff away!
