You shouldn't have to ever pull the trigger to disassemble a Glock. At least not any straight from the factory.

The glock slide only has to be pulled back a couple centimeters to engage the slide release. You should be able to pull the slide back this amount using one hand. Then the other hand pulls down the slide release.

This is easy math. I usually attempt to refrain from this, BUT,


THANKS FOR LETTING US KNOW HOW OUR GUNS WORK THERE FELLA

He was trying the trigger after Installing the part, racked the slide, now the trigger has engaged the sear and must be depressed for disassembly.


Also, the slide really only needs to move 5/16-3/8"(Merrica) rearward for the takedown lever to be actuated.

You shouldn't have to dry fire to disassemble. All I was saying. Get over yourself.

I'm replying under the assumption that the gun will dry fire when not trying to disassemble. So that would apply.

Nothing like a Glock.

I castigate you for your ignorance, yet I need to get over myself. Let me try to do so.

Let the OP speak for himself. I was under the impression he could dry fire the pistol. Just not while trying to disassemble.

You must feel great getting on forums to demean people. Instead, maybe politely explain the situation to a new person to the hobby instead of being an ******* and trying to make somebody not as gun savvy as you look stupid.

Like I said. Get over yourself.

Way to turn the thread into a pissing match. Try to keep it a little more civil next time.
