Do you keep spare parts for your Glock?
 
I hate waiting for parts if I must order them. I had this experience with a 1911 45 I had years ago. So I ordered a few spare just in case. Just some common parts that wear out or have a rep of just breaking.

Do you keep any spare parts for your Glock and if so which parts? (i.e. RSA, Pin set, spring set, etc...)

DocWills 11-13-2012 14:55

yes, sprins and pins mostly. a spare slide lock, the little stuff.
Its reasonable to do them all, cost is very low for factory parts even thru third party.:supergrin:

dhgeyer 11-13-2012 15:30

Probably overkill but, let's see: complete striker assembly, all pins, locking block, slide lock, slide lock spring, slide stop lever, striker channel liner, extractor and tensioning assembly, trigger mechanism housing with ejector, connector, a couple of sets of magazine internals, trigger and trigger bar, recoil spring assembly, trigger spring, sights, - guess that's all.

Same as above, only worse! I've got two or three sets of everything (including barrels) for both of my G-21's, and a G-19.

No I keep a spare Glock for my Glock.

barth 11-13-2012 16:07

For my single Gen 3 EXO G27 I have;
6 barrels in three calibers, finishes and lengths.
20+ mags in three calibers and four lengths.
4 X-Grip adapters (2 of each size)
2 trigger/bars
4 connectors (2 OEM, 2 Ghost)
2 trigger springs (OEM standard and NY1)
2 sets of night sights (Ameriglo I-Dot Pro, XS Big Dot)
? Various RSAs (OEM, Tungsten and Stainless)

I'm sure I've got more stuff I'm not thinking of...

Their is something to be said for that line of thought. Three guns is a pair,two guns are one. SJ 40

My Glock spares are the other guns, but it is worth having spare parts around. I keep parts for some of my rifles and other handguns.

JBP55 11-13-2012 16:35

Several of everything but the receiver, slide and barrel.

TheExplorer 11-13-2012 16:37

I think most people here keep extra Glocks for spare parts.

I plan on doing that as well. I'd rather not have to scavenge parts from one of my other firearms when spare parts are cheap.

Spare Parts
 
I have a tackle box full of most of the smaller parts...springs, etc. Haven't had to replace much yet, though.

tbone1964 11-13-2012 17:25

yup i have a receiver and slide parts kits from glockmiester fro every glock I own.

RWBlue 11-13-2012 17:36

So far I have not had anything break.

I have a spare G21 for my G21.
I would like to get a spare G19 for my G19.
I should probably get a spring kit. One of my G21s spent some time in and underwater.
I would like to get some spare barrels threaded so I could use them with a suppressor.

But so far nothing has broke.

Same. If I didn't though I might have a few springs, striker cups, etc.

Oh, wait, I do have a Heckler and Koch HK45C if my Glock takes a dump.

minkis18 11-13-2012 17:47

I bought the 3.5lb disconnect, extended slide lock and LCI for my gun, I still kept the old ones just in case because I'm indecisive. No, I don't have any spare springs or the stuff that I SHOULD have on hand for a 15-year-old gun but I live 4 miles from Glockmeister's store so it's not hard for me to get replacements.

I've also purchased the Glockmeister extended takedown lever and trigger spring but don't use either. The takedown lever was scraping up my holster and the spring didn't change my pull weight at all. Now even the stock flat slide lock lever is on there because I had a bad habit of putting my thumb on it! gee why won't my slide hold open? gun must be broken -.-

JCM1976 11-13-2012 17:54

I just buy extra glocks.

flw 11-13-2012 18:24

Let me refocus the question.

If you could only get three spare parts what would they be?

The first one on my list would be the slide lock spring followed by trigger spring and firing pin/striker spring and I have to add a fourth because with out it the FP/striker spring may do you no good,spring cups.

Another G19, another G17, and a G34. All Gen4. :supergrin:

HKLovingIT 11-13-2012 21:29

I have enough to rebuild every 9mm model except frame and slide, and then lots of extra springs. Oh yeah and spring cups lol. Always have some extra spring cups if you tear your pistol down all the way down. These parts have been useful to me for maintenance as well as trouble shooting a couple of issues.

I have had a couple parts break on me. Slide release on a Gen 2 17 and a slide lock lever. Now when I buy a used one I just strip it, replace everything except those good old machined extractors. :cool:

For most of my other brands I usually just keep springs and RSA.

TK-421 11-13-2012 21:32

Only 3 spares? A Glock 23, a Glock 20 and a Glock 21. :tongueout:

vis35 11-13-2012 23:50

Oh boy, do I have parts!

I got my first Glock (a second generation G21) in 1994, just before the federal assault weapons ban went into effect. As a freshly minted Certified Glock Armorer I ordered what I thought would be enough parts to keep that G21 going for the next 20 years. I ordered firing pins, extractors, ejectors and all springs (including 10 spare magazine springs to keep those evil 13 round magazines going!). I must have chosen well, it has been 18 years and I have not needed any of those parts to keep the G21 going. I have used my parts to fix two customers guns, but I have never needed any for my own gun.

Anybody need any obsolescent 1994 vintage G21 parts?

I am the on staff Glock Armorer at the largest gun shop here in Anchorage. As far as I know I am the only Armorer available to the non-law enforcement shooters of this area. I keep in stock all firing pins, extractors, sights, recoil springs, slide lock springs, all pins, slide stops and most other small parts. The only things I do not keep on hand are slides, barrels (except the 6” G20 barrel) or magazine parts.

But for the average Glock owner I would recommend a spare firing pin, extractor and trigger spring. I do not find the slide lock spring to be a high breakage part (except on early G19/23’s, and after those early springs are replaced they generally do not break). A spare slide stop and a recoil spring would be good additions.

I've thought about picking that Glock spare parts kit in the Glock Shop online. I think it was $45(?). Does anyone think that's a good idea for a casual shooter like me?
