The G17 is incredibly easy to disassemble and reassemble. Be careful with the YouTube videos though. You don't need a hammer to remove any of the 3 pins (2 on some models)! I even saw a dealer at a gun show driving a trigger pin out with a hammer!!

The pin that goes through the slide release is grooved. You just have to put steady pressure on the pin while wiggling the slide release. Other than that just remember that the top pin goes back in before the slide release and the pin that hold it in place.

Fantastic gun to work on.

Just my two bits.

Oh, and I was talking beyond field stripping for cleaning! Field stripping for cleaning takes about 4 seconds if you take your time.

Id go with glock. I shot a ruger 9mm not to long ago and it was ok but it just felt like there was something missing to it. And it had alot of recoil. Kinda seemed like it was made out of cheap medal also. But eh it could of just been me

Get whatever you are comfortable with and what feels right in your hand. Have your shot both of them yet? I have shot both and if given a choice between the 2 I would take the Ruger, I don't like the feel of a Glock, I don't like the trigger mechanism of the Glock, and I don't like the fact that the Glock doesn't have an external safety. I like an exposed hammer with the ability to fire DA or SA, I am much more accurate with the single action trigger than with any stiker fire trigger, with practice I'm sure I could improve but I just don't like the feel, also I prefer a external safety, I can flip the safety off plenty fast and fire in DA, I would rather deal with that than chance an accidental discharge with the Glock

I am a big fan of Ruger's revolvers especially the Blackhawks.

I own a 95 that's an ugly workhorse. Also, a p345 .45 acp that is excellent. However, I just traded a SR9 in and purchased a 4th Glock pistol. A model 34 competition 9mm.

Go with Glock!!!!!

I'd go Glock too for the obvious reasons already mentioned. You might want to look at the G19 and G26 as well as the G17. I have the .40S&W versions of those three and tend to use the smaller versions more.

Well I own a glock 21 its a .45. I also shot a river 9mm not sure which one it was but it just seemed cheap to me and it didn't have much recoil but for some reason it would jump up more then my .45

I love my Glocks and as much as I love Ruger products (I own a GP100 and Ruger 10/22), when its handguns that are semiautomatic in 9mm and .45ACP department its the Glock 17 and 21s for me.







Glocks are great BUT there are 3 things I wanted to fix ergonomically:
1) The trigger pull was a bit much so I replaced with a 3.5 pound trigger connector.
2) The slide release latch is a bit small, aftermarket one with a little 'bump' fixed it (you can see on both Glock 17s).
3) The mag release is a bit small so I replaced with extended one, rounded off the slightly sharp bits with a 400 grit sandpaper.

All of the above can be done in about 15 minutes but I took my time and took an entire evening to get it all just right.
