Glock 26 Complete Disassembly
Finally took apart my gen 3 g26 completely. Wanting to learn as much as possible to start minor gunsmithing. Any ideas on what to work on my Glock from home with limited tools? Just wanting to do some diy for knowledge/ experience and fun.

You should check out some youtube vids. 25 cent trigger job is easy and effective. Don't do anymore than your comfortable with but Glock's are easy to work on and parts are cheap.

I have viewed a few videos and read some articles about them. I like the trigger as is but that I have considered it. A little uneasy about it bc it is my primary carry weapon and I don't make it to the range as often as I would like. If I have an opportunity I may just do so

Put down the weapon, and slowly back away.

What is it you think needs smithing and why ? Since this is your primary carry weapon and not a range toy, you should be very careful about any unnecessary modifications that may compromise its reliability.

Don't mess with it. The worst thing someone who is new can do to their only carry weapon is tinker with it. You admittedly say you don't go to the range as much as you would like. Yes it is possible to mess up a .25 trigger job. I have witnessed it. The last thing you want is to mess something up and not know it until its time to draw and fire your weapon. Work dry fire drills...invest in some training. Clean it again if you have to, but stop tinkering with something that doesn't need to be tinkered with. My opinion.

Agreed with the last 2 guys.
Unless your trigger is sticking or the extractor seems broken and not ejecting casings LEAVE IT ALONE. Nothing wring with exploring your firearm (safely) but I wouldnt touch it personally unless there's a reason to.

The only thing I do from time to time is break down the slide assembly and get all up inside the firing pin channel to clean it out every 1000 rounds or so.
