Default Glock Simplicity of Design

Is it true that glocks are easier to take apart than 1911's or HK?

One of the easiest - to -field - strip weapons ever made. Easy to clean and incredibly reliable, even when dirty.

My little Kimber Compact is pretty easy, as it doesn't have a barrel bushing on it.

I am so happy that the Glock pistols are so easy to clean and I don't have to take too long to get them in good order. I'll let the experts indicate whether the Hk or 1911 is easier to clean, since i don't own any of these.

I think the Glock is easier to field strip than the 1911. Although, with practice the 1911 isn't hard to field strip.

Complete disassembly is a different story. Glocks are far easier to do a full disassembly on. There aren't very many parts, and there is no lining up small tricky parts.

That being said, I don't have any experience with H&K.

I can field strip a glock and have all the parts layed out in less than 5 seconds, i dont try so hard to be fast when field stripping my 1911 because i dont want to put any idiot marks on it.

HK's are a pain in the a$$ to disassemble. Had to completely tear down a 9mm the other day to duracoat the frame flat dark earth...never again will I agree to that. Glocks are so amazingly simple....that is why they are so durable and reliable. Not saying HK's aren't.....but they suck for teardown.

True. Easy and many resources to guide you doing it on the net. Love my Glocks!

I've taken down my brand new 1911 a couple of times already, just for familiarization. Dealing with that bushing and plug is a straight up PITA. GLOCKs are far easier to strip down.
I still will probably never own a GLOCK, and I'm already planning my next 1911. I just got mine yesterday and haven't even fired it yet.

Yeah I'd say a Glock is one of the easiest to take completely apart.
