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

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...

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...

Glock 46 with Rotating Locking Barrel

3ACR_Scout ·
This German publication, DWJ, (which I can't read and haven't had the chance to look at with Google Translate) contains photos of what appears to be a new 9mm Glock model, the G46, which features a rotating, locking barrel. This file is posted to an AR15.com user's Google drive, so I'm not sure how long it will be available. The G46 is on page 7 of this PDF file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9hAva_yxlzPZnh0QXNCdk5rckk/view Overall, the pistol appears to be Gen 5-ish, but with a longer...

Glock 19 appendix holster

Been searching around for an appendix holster for my G19 with X300, I’m leaning towards either Bawidamann or Henry Holsters. Does anyone have any feedback positive or negative on these? Are there any other companies I should throw in the mix?

Glock Operator Class -- Fox Valley Tech College, Appleton, Wis 14 & 15 March 2018

Jeff22 ·
Glock Professional introduced a new class called "Glock Operator" in April of 2017. I have gone to the Glock Instructor Workshop twice before (in 1992 with Pete Tarley and in 2006 with some guy retired from Detroit PD) and Glock Armorer classes a few times and I was interested to experience Glock's newest class that was intended for users of the Glock pistols. The class was held on the indoor range at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, Wisc. The Public Safety Training Center at FVTC...

CZ P10C

I was pretty impressed with this gun, so I figured I would share some thoughts and pics. It was marketed as the next Glock 19 killer. Did it succeed? Scroll down to find out! This is what comes in the box. Pretty routine kit. It comes with the small backstrap installed. In this picture, you are looking at the medium backstrap. I paid about $400 out the door for it, which I feel is more than reasonable for what I got. You can find the 1st gen models for even less now that an update is hitting...

Glock factory zero and sight picture

Thanatos ·
Hey guys, I have 2 gnat's-ass questions about pistol sight pictures and factory zero distance. 1. At what range are factory Glock sights zeroed (assuming here that most/all standard-height aftermarket sights would follow suit if properly installed). 2. Within the sight picture at the zeroed distance, does the bullethole in the target bisect the top edge of the front sight post, or sit behind the post centered in the white dot? If the latter, at what range should I set the target for a...

RFI- Glock barrel interchangeability between generations?

mog ·
I did not have much luck with Google-Fu, and most results deal with Gen 3 and Gen 4. I have a G20 that is a Gen 1 (one of the first 1000 in the US according to Glock), and I just received an Alpha Wolf 6.6" threaded barrel that is marked 'Gen 3/4', (compatibility was not listed on the website). My slide is off being milled for an RDS, so I can not function test until it returns. My 'Mark 1 Eyeball' thinks they are the same, BUT does anyone have experience with Glock (any model) Gen 1 to Gen...

Glock conversion 23>19

Viper39C ·
I have an old G23 that I barely shoot as it’s my only .40 pistol. I picked up a Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel a while back and my question is, what more than 9mm mags would I need to turn it into a G19-ish gun? I’d rather not buy a G19 unless it would be more reliable. Thoughts?

Re: Glock 19 appendix holster

LEEWALL ·
I carry the same setup appendix and I went with a Trex arms light compatible raptor holster. Opinions of the owner aside, my reasoning was that it appeared to have the smallest footprint for a holster that accepted an x300. The retention isn't great, and definitely no positive click like I get with my Raven concealment phantom light compatible. It will hold the gun and light while upside down without falling out but if you shake it around the gun starts to come lose. I previously carried my...

I appreciate your offer for the photos but it’s not necessary , I have a raptor for my G21. You are spot on about the retention, even though most or all of the light bearing holsters get there retention off the light the Raptor’s was lacking for sure.

Check out http://nickydex.com/ultimate-c...t-light-bearing-iwb/ I replaced my Raptor with one of these, good retention and fit/finish. Only downside is he makes holsters by the batch so be prepared to wait. If it weren’t for that I would be ordering one for my G19

I'm downgrading to the Inforce APL (400 lumen), just to cut down the bulk and make AIWB with a G17/19 doable. I'm currently running a JMCK for a glock without a light. I have to say that I love the switchology of the APL, over the X300U

I've been carrying 17s and 19s in the Phlster Spotlight and CNC Keroman. I've got both attached to Phlster Flex panels. The Spotlight is overall better, but the Keroman isn't bad. I've heard nothing but good things about the Gotham holster from Bawidamann and if I didn't have a weird preference for the TLR instead of the X300U, I'd have ordered one by now.

For small footprint you might want to check out the Raven VG3 or Armordillo Concealment XFER. They are similar to each other in that they totally index and provide retention by the light. I carry my G19 with TLR-1HL and TBRC Comp in the XFER. there may be more comfortable AIWB options out there but this is the only one I’ve ever really used.

I've been using the Phlster Spotlight as well. Works well with my Glock 19 that has an RMR and comp, my Glock 19, or my plain Jane 19 w/x300u. Another option is the Dark Star Rigel, which I had seriously considered because I like their clips. https://darkstargear.com/product/glock-rigel/

I started using the XFer at Geronimo's urging in the fall of 2013. As a minimalist holster for AIWB and a WML, (M&P/X300 first, then G19/X300, now back to M&P/X300) I'm real happy with it. Especially for to & from work carry. However, I've had Bawidamann Gotham for quite a while and I've started using it daily. Re-holstering, especially with a thumb safety (or Gadget equipped) pistol is less complicated. Still trying to decide on hooks or soft loops. Other than that I'm happy...

I am glad for you. I got into a fight with G-Code customer service that did not end up well. Final word was I would buy nothing more from them as long as I drew breath and I would never uttter a favorable word about them. they scewed up an order, lied about it, and when they asked what would mke me happy I told them that I would reorder the item and pay full price, but I wanted them to eat the $9.00 shipping fee. Crickets. I also assured them I WOUld order an incog IWB from them. No deal.

I have the standard AIWB with hard loop, and a Wingclaw 2.0. Both with extra tuck. Fit is outstanding, they ride at just the right height, highly concealable and stable, while allowing a solid master grip on the draw.

I still run my XFER occasionally but mostly use a JM Custom Kydex variant. I really like the JMCK offerings because they just feel right. This week I bought a couple of holsters from Tenicor based off of the latest recommendation from Kyle Defoor. Apparently, he's backing them now, and his gear recommendations are usually pretty legit so I figured I'd give them a shot. Until I have the Tenicor in hand my vote is for JMCK. I need to sell this huge box of other shit I've tried...

-25 yards is a good distance to have your sights zero’d. 15 yards would also suffice if that’s the farthest your range went. -Different ammo may have different zero. For example, out of a Gen4 Glock 17, 115 grain ammo may print a different POI than 147 grain ammo -Some guns print high/low out of the box, regardless of ammo. Your front sight height would be the easiest change to dictate elevation. You may need to change your front sight height to get your desired POA/POI relationship. (Sight...

IIRC Glock does not give an accuracy guarantee. However, if you send one in for work, it has to shoot (5rds?) inside a 2" circle at 15m before it leaves their hands. This came from the armorer's course/ instructor workshop I attended about two years ago.

My understanding is that you could adjust the lasers on the SIRT pistol. I will check the owners manual when I get home. Did you get any of the manuals with the device?

@darbywpd It did come with manuals, and you are correct re: laser adjustment. I was just trying to figure out which rdistance to a zero at. However, on further testing, the laser point of impact relative to the sight picture is jumping around wildly between shots, and there’s something rattling inside the gun. Also, the laser adjustment set screws are very loose. I’m returning it. I heard the SIRTs had some questionable QC when they first came out. I’m wondering if I got a first-run lemon. I...

So far as I know, barrels will interchange between Gen 1-4 for all calibers. Since the Gen 5 guns are all 9mm, the G17 is the first that isn't backwards compatible because it is essentially a long G19 barrel. Same would apply to a G34 (is there a Gen 5 G34?).

Isn't that rotating barrel lockup similar to what Betetta uses in the PX4 Storm line? If not , ignore this as I've had a long travel day and been on my feet most of the time I wasn't in a vehicle. I'm toast.

Re: Glock 46 with Rotating Locking Barrel

Mark, someone referenced the Beretta PX4's rotating barrel on the other forum also, so I'm guessing you're correct. Another post mentioned that the G46 is being evaluated by Germany's GSG9, but I'm not sure if that was lifted out of the article or just RUMINT. I'll try to look over the article and translate some of it when I get to my home computer. Hopefully a German-speaking member will beat me to it... Dave

No, Mojo you are correct. The PX4 Storm (and the 8000 before it) has a similar rotating lugged barrel. Pretty sure the 1912 Steyr is this way as well. From what little I understand of the article, the Glock 46 exists to be a viable candidate for German Police pistol trials/selection. I'm curious to see how this one plays out in the long run
