Default Glock 36 question

im a new glock owner, ive owned revolvers and long guns up until now and i have a question about my model 36. Should the slide come off when i dry fire it??? I dry fired it to get ready to field strip it and the slide just came on off without me first pulling it back and releasing it. Is this normal. Sorry for the dumb question but as i said i dont know too much about the gun being i just aquired it. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum. Normally, new members stop by the Introductions Thread and introduce themselves.

I can't help you with your Glock. There are several members here that can help you and answer your question. Stick around and I'm confident that the Glock crew will offer some insight for you. They do love and know the Glocks. I am just not one of them, sorry.

Hmmm, he said he did dry fire it...

Hey guys there is a quick way to disassemble a Glock, you make your weapon safe, that means take out the magazine, rack the slide and physically and visually check the chamber to ensure it is safe. If you push down on the locking tabs on each side of the lower receiver and pull the trigger the slide will push right off the receiver. When you get used to it, it is a really quick was to disassemble a Glock.

the thing is i wasnt pulling down on the tabs, it was like they are loose or something. but needless to say i got rid of it just a few hours ago to a shop and bought a smith 638 airweight. more of what im used to i guess.

You'll be happy with the Smith.

G36 is a great weapon. Funny how the thinnest Glock made is a 45. Hope their R & D guys are working on thin carry guns.

The spring loaded retainer on your frame probably didn't seat right on the barrel. Might be some junk in there. But you've probably got it figured out by now.
