I just took my G34 frame apart for the first time...

    The round count is 12390. I have a new appreciation for how much gunk the modern plastic gun can run with in the internals.

    I did a little scrubbing with Hoppes on all the parts and the frame, let it sit for a few minutes, hosed the big chunks off with hot water in the sink, let everything dry, and then repeated a couple more times till it was clean. I replaced the trigger spring and slide lock spring while I was in there, but probably didn't "have" to.

    In the future I will probably do it every 5k rounds. I think it dropped the trigger pull weight a very small bit as well. I also learned I have the "-" connector, which I didn't think I had before.

    That's a lot of rounds.
    Hoppes or any powder solvent is great for cleaning the frame. I flush that out with Simple Green, it seems to dissolve out any solvents or powder fouling left behind and rinse clean with very hot water.
    Gotta' love the simplicity of Glocks.
