NoVA Glock armorers

Can anyone recommend a Glock armorer in the NoVA area? Everything's running fine, but I'd like to be proactive about maintenance.

I don't know if he's an official armorer or not, But TRNinVA's younger son can detail strip a glock faster than anyone I've ever known. He used to shoot a G34 in USPSA and did plenty of tinkering with it. He's actually out west past Front Royal, but if you went out to one of the monthly USPSA matches out that way you could probably hook up with him.

i think this would be a good sticky note thread, moderators???

wont get lost in the shuffle, always at the top for referals......

who knows, i may want a ny trigger or night sights one day and a local pro is less expensive than a trip to the factory.....

this is turning into a grade A club house.

Facts are no match against enthusiasm and ignorance...

I've got a Glock sight installation tool so I can help people out in that area. I'm in Fairfax city (near FHS).

I'm also really familiar with detail stripping, so if you need a new trigger bar dropped in or whatever, feel freel to shoot me a message.

Not a certified Glock armorer, but I've got five of them and I keep 'em running pretty well.
I like guns.

Joey is no longer here at Blue Ridge, mainly due to health reasons.

I am now the armorer, and just got my Glock certification (waiting for the actual certificate now), and I am also Sig certified.

Just ask for Tim.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think Northern VA Gunworks (Newington) is a Glock certified armorer (Sandy and Robert Garrett).

Is there a non-fee Glock meet for VA people to exchange info and learn from veterans?

I just bought the AGI-Glock Armorer DVD but I learn better when someone sit down with me.
