    Notsure what I am doing wrong. But the slide comes off a little rough. Never smoothly.

    And everytime I take the slide off. It looks like photo. I have to place the spring back were it belongs before reassembling. This is my 3rd .45 acp and my 5th or so semi auto but my first glock. All my other semi autosnthe slide came off smoothly. So im sure its just something im doing wrong. Any advice?

    Never had an issue field stripping a gun before. Everyone states the glock is one of the easiest to takedown. And while I may find it easy with practice. I found my XD and my colt 1911 xs commander easy from the first day.... so I would disagree with it being the easiest.

    Nope looks normal; with slide off, hold frame in hand and look down from the top view. See the metal tabs in the frame, that the slide rides in/on? Put a drop of oil on each before re-asssembly.

    GTG!

    What are you runnin for ammo?

    So the fack that the spring moves out of its notch on the barrel is normal?

    I cam guess maybe its to aid in removal of the spring if thats normal...


    Only shot 50 round so far. Just federal fmj. What I always use for the range in my .45's.

    I had already placed oil therenas part of my cleaning routine.

    If I'm not mistaken, the spring doesn't rest in that notch on the recoil lug when it is assembled. It is resting on the front of the slide lock.

    I gather you are posting on a phone and that you meant to ask about it being a fact

    Yes, it is normal, but not for the reason you believe.

    The only reason it is retained in the notch of the barrel is to ease assembly. Once assembled, the spring assembly isn't retained in place by the barrel, but by part of the frame. When in use, the barrel moves backward while the recoil assembly stays in place
