Glock Advanced Armorer's Course

black6 ·
Background - I have been to the standard 1 day Glock Armorer's course three times.   I am looking for more of a challenge / more info but wanted to speak with someone who has completed the course for their feedback.   Thanks in advance.

It's a Glock -- how complicated do you need it to be?

+1 You wouldn't pay for advanced Lego building. I can't imagine what the "advanced" version of a Glock armorer's course would be.

An acquaintance recently went to one in Smyrna and I'm planning on it. According to him, the bulk of the additional time relative to the 1 day class is spent on practical exercises diagnosing and fixing real problems that get sent back in. There's also a tour of the facility if you're going to Smyrna. I'll try to obtain further specific info from him if you like.

Yes, it's actually a pretty decent class. You will...

I just went through the excellent off site AA GLOCK. First day is an overview of the basic GLOCK armorer content. The second is a more hands on diagnosis of about 30 various GLOCK's with miscellaneous broken or wrong parts that the students are instructed to field strip and diagnose. I enjoyed the class overall.

One of our armorers went to the advanced course, and brought back the troubleshooting portion to teach the rest of us. Pretty useful, but probably worth more if you're a Glock nerd, or armoring a lot of guns for less switched on people.

Glock 17R trigger reset

joeroman ·
Hello All, I have a 17r that has broken reset trigger spring. Any ideas of where I can get one? I'm a certified Glock armorer however my cert has expired. I don't do enough work to justify attending the all day class and parting with the $100. Ant help would be appreciated. Thanks

Good idea. When I carry the j-frame, I always have 2 speed loaders with me and I hate the way they rattle around in my cargo pocket. Might try and adapt for that purpose. Thanks for posting.

DIY Glock 43 Pocket Mag Pouch

Pyrotech ·
Sometime last year, there was a discussion on here about using a Tyvek mailing envelop to create a pocket magazine pouch. The idea was simple lightweight and low profile. I was looking for something that would let me slip a couple of spare mags into my back pocket and at the time I could not really find anything off the shelf that I liked. So an idea was stolen and tweaked. I did not have any Tyvek, But I did have some HEAVY mylar bags left over over from a project my company worked on along...

Are the mags affected at all when you sit on then? Also how is the comfort? I have an aversion to things in my back pockets, to include wallets.

The mags do not seem to be affected at all. The comfort level is high enough i have not noticed the maga in the back pocket. I also have not taken multiple hours long drive. If i do the mags would come out same.as my wallet. out an about town or out to dinner and movie it is more comfortable than i would have first thought

Good example of Improvise, Adapt and Overcome. Minimal bulk, keeps mags secure, and oriented.

If you paid $200 to get your slide milled then you got ripped unless this kind of work has skyrocketed in the last few years. Mark Housel from L&M Precision did my slide 3yrs ago and it was perfect with no gaps anywhere as he knows what is supposed to be done with that type of sight. He ceracoated the raw steel, mounted the RMR, mounted the provided Trijicon suppressor sights, and turned the whole thing around in about 3 weeks; cost then was $140.00. The irons were dead-on and the dot...

Local Machine Shops for Pistol Work

So I wanted to get a Trijicon RMR mounted on my Glock 17... There are some amazing companies doing incredible work out there, but most of them are either out of my price range, or the lead time is measured in months it seems. So in checking around the internet I found two articles on rifleshooter.com One article was about how to machine a Glock slide for a Trijicon RMR and the other article was about how to machine cocking serrations. Well, I am not a machinist, but I do know one. So I...

Thanks for sharing your experience. Above is my experience, and it was a great one. And I found tremendous value in the money and time spent working with good local people. I guess everyone's mileage may very. Sometimes it is about the journey.
