    Take the slide cover plate off, remove firing pin and spring, clean it.

    NEVER, EVER, EVER get any lube, oil or grease in your firing pin channel. It will eventually result in light primer strikes.

    I unfortunately became victim to this during the 2009 IDPA postal match. 12 fail to fires resulting in a piss poor performance.

    heres a good pictorial

    Also there is a plastic sleeve that the firing pin rides in. Don't use any sort of abrasives in the channel.

    Willfully Armed and Cody32953,
    Those are very helpful pages you posted. I'm still new to the Glock platform but I just completely disassembled my slide and cleaned everything. That wasn't too difficult. :)

    bench the oil

    You gotta keep that oil away from the firing pin. I only use oil on the barrel, maybe a little on the rails thats all.

    I use Hoppe's Elite Cleaner for this instead of rubbing alcohol, but rubbing alcohol will work fine.
