Glock Advanced Armorer's Course

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.

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.

Thought it was time for an update on how well this little pouch has held up over the last year. as you can see it still looks almost new. bottom edge of the tape where it was folded over to form the seam tape is coming loose a bit, on the lower left side. Back corner is crumbled a bit along with the tape starting to wear through. not unexpected for a corner considering its construction materials The side seam tape is starting to wear through on the bottom left corner All things considered, I...

in my short range history with it, absolutely zero flickering. Strong dot the whole way. I agree on the battery compartment. Wish it were sealed. Bore axis is such that even with suppressor sights, you'd still clear more than 50% of the upper window for use with the red dot. I see no issue with it at all, but I'll let you know if I run across anything. Care to be more specific? I'm not sure I'm understanding your concerns.

Shield Sights RMS

Shield sights RMS Glock MOS plate bundle Review Guys, here’s an unbiased review of the Shield RMS sight . I used my own hard-earned money on this thing. Though, if Shield ever sees this review and wants to fix all of the issues I’ve seen and send me one free of charge, they merely need to contact me at cowboytacticalgear@gmail.com . Or if they want to send me millions of dollars, or whatever. If they want to sue me for defamation, my email is consigliere@lightfighter.net I haven’t shaken it...

Excellent summary dude. I have to admit that it does look purpose built for the MOS19, but a lack of a weather resistant battery compartment may prove to be a fatal design flaw for a CCW pistol, especially in a humid environment. Hopefully that isnt the case and there is a place for this sight on the market. Now a technical follow up. Did you notice any flickering or the like during live fire, and with such a low bore axis compared to other sights, do you see any issue with buis in the future?

You actually covered them pretty directly, I think I only had the three. Id definitely be in for one of these instead of another disappointing RMR experience if it pans out well.

I stand corrected. I would think that should you turn it on to the lowest setting because of low light work, and forget to adjust, next needing it in the broad daylight, that it would be a liability. I've done this countless times with carbine optics, but usually catch it first, it being my primary. It's all theory for me as this is my first foray in to pistol optics.

Not sure how relevant this may be, but it's additional info for those curious - Shield Sights does the production of the old Optima Red dot/JPoint MRDS. That may provide some insight from far more experienced users on the expectations of what this optic has in terms of durability/life cycle, mounting solutions, etc....or a starting point for those expectations, anyway.

Generally speaking, the opposite tends to be the case. Set it at a brightness that will be immediately perceptible and not wash out under the brightest light conditions that could be encountered and leave it there. My WML is there for low light work, no interest in dimming the dot for it. Dan

mobius i posted: I suppose for some the lack of manual adjustment is a con - but no one wants that on a CCW pistol. Why would no one want a manual adjustment on their CCW pistol? Unless the auto adjust on an optic can properly compensate for WML use, I would much rather have manual control, to prevent wash-out (hence why the RM06 is the default recommended RMR).

Update: I was mistaken. The adjustability is automatic, not constant. It is just SO fast. You have no lag issues like the RMR - it's instantaneous.

Also, it's worth saying, that the speed of the auto-adjust is a pro. I suppose for some the lack of manual adjustment is a con - but no one wants that on a CCW pistol.

Any more info with longer use? I'm looking for my first pistol red dot, and I'm very intrigued by this sight, primarily because of the ability to use standard sights as back up (more on that thought in a second). The waterproofing issue is of concern to me. Though this would only be for CCW, humidity is a reality, as is getting caught in unexpected downpours. That alone could be a deal breaker. On the standard sights, I can see the "ears" of the RMS above the rear iron sights, but as a back...

I wish I could tell you that I've cooked off 10K rounds through this thing since my last post. But I live in Houston, and with cleanup eating up every spare minute, I've not been shooting much lately. I've carried it concealed for over a month now. I take it out and stash it in my console, and into my gun safe, and under my night stand, and on to the counter, and in a briefcase, etc multiple times a day. I did confirm zero last week with about 75 rounds, and it was still spot on. I'm really...

No need to apologize, appreciate the feedback. Stay safe, hope the damage wasn't too bad for you, and that restoration / recovery is as smooth as possible. Good to hear the manufacturer is open to feedback. Anxious to see / hear what they do next.
