those pesky, tiny take-down buttons/levers
 
I wish Glock would change those *tiny* take-down levers/buttons. I have a really hard time with them on my Glock copy-cat Sigma. Is there some sort of trick or technique to taking down a Glock? I don't know what size hands I have, but could my fingers be too big to comfortably pull those two buttons and hold them down?

Many thanks.

Owl, The Sigma is like the Glock in the take down.

Triple check the firearm is empty.
remove magazine
dry fire
pull the slide to the rear 1/8 of an inch (or just enough to be able to push the take-down levers).
the slide assembly should slide off towards the front.

reassembly is the simple.
again, no mag
align rails to slide
push the slide to the rear as far as it goes
gently, let slide come back to its natural resting position.

They make an extended take down assy for the glock. Makes it easier to grasp.

Which models have the extended take-down levers?

It's an aftermarket part. I've got one on my g34. It's made by lonewolf.

I had three Glocks before I was taught this technique:

Put downward pressure on the tabs THEN pull gently and slightly backward on the slide until the little tabs drop (really small distance, maybe 1/4" movement of the slide). When the tabs drop, push the slide forward and off.

Before I got all of mine, a buddy had a 26. And it would piss be off to no end, that he could do it so fast, and I couldn't figure it out.

Thanks, CPO15!

I've practiced to where it's super fast. however holding the gun, fingering
those tabs and manipulating the slide is still somewhat tricky. When i do it,
the gun is practically pointing back at me. Good thing I triple-check it's empty.


I use left hand to grab the gun and right-hand to work the slide:

My brother-in-law helped fix my cheap tactical light, it's working fine but now
the shotty already had a new light. We were looking for a gun to mount
on. What do you think?
