+1 for cleaning new firearms. I ALWAYS do for the reasons Dillinger added earlier. Wouldn't do that to a new truck though,lol.

It may be new to him but that's not a new firearm. It's a Gen 2, anything but new. Probably a good idea to clean and inspect also.

Exactly.....as it says in most owners' manuals that come in the box with new guns.

Rather than replacing the slide from the front and drawing it backwards, I replaced it from the front and pushed forwards. The slide is now caught on the back rails, not able to go any farther backwards or forwards than shown in the pictures below.




I would really appreciate it if anyone has any words of wisdom for a new gun owner. Thanks.
Gawd, that photo reminds me of the scene in "There's Something About Mary" with Ben Stiller in the bathroom. Hard to look at.

Yeah, but Markie Post helped me get through that scene. She was very helpful in "Night Court" as well.

Well, I can tell there are a bunch of Glock-haters on this forum. I'm a 1911 fan, Smith revolver fan, Sig fan, etc., and have been for years. But I'm gonna tell you: Glocks rock too! I have a 19, 20SF, 26 and 30 and wish I had a couple more (nah, these are enough). Don't pay any attention to these folks, OP, just call Glock, explain your situation and see if they can help you over the phone. Your problem is not hard to fix but I'd rather an armorer tell you what to do. They're out there and would be glad to help.

Dear friend,

This problem can be solved by doing the following;
With your right hand grip the front of your firearm and the frame, press the upper part together with the frame.
As you do that try closing the action of your firearm by pressing the rear part of your gun against a solid surface.
As you are doing so with your other hand you will bring the disassembly lever down (on both sides) at the same time.
This should resolve your problem.
If you still have tough times with this, go on my website to find our number and call us, ask for David.

Good luck.

David

Depress the slide lock on both ends... and wack the slide forward on wood table/bench edge. It will come off.
Seen this many times.
