He installed night sights and was capable of changing out the spring on the trigger, had those kind of parts. Did not actually sell me parts, he supplied them for the install

OK. Big difference. Him getting the parts and installing them is all good. If he is selling you the parts then either he is not a glock armorer or he won't be for long. Selling glock parts is a big no-no.

There is just something about the Hoppe fragrance and that fresh coffee smell early in the morning ! Have used Hoppes since 1970 on all my firearms, which includes all of my polymer framed guns. Never have had any issues with its use. I still use it but also use ballistol and CLP as well. If you like Hoppes, USE it.

I've known a lot of people to use Hoppes on Glocks. Also heard Ballistol is just as good. Never know

Directly from the armorer manual.
"Any product that is advertised and/or marketed for use on guns may be used on glock pistols. "

No sh@t,I rarely clean my glocks that often. Lazy I guess, never had a failure of any kind in twenty plus years. I mean I wipe um down but not clean.

I wish I could avoid the urge and not clean my guns, but I clean them after every firing, Once I shot 8 rounds of JHP through my LC9 while at the range playing with my G19. I got home, field stripped the Glock, cleaned it and put it away. I decided not to clean the Ruger since I only shot one mag + 1 in the chamber. Woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't stand it. Cleaned the Ruger & went back to bed.

Just because the glock will continue to run without being cleaned doesn't mean it is smart to do so.
You are just asking for failure and shortening the life of the parts.
Glocks do need to be maintained and parts do need to be replaced occasionally.
