    Good morning.

    Just shot my new Glock-19 for the first time, and could not wait to get home, field strip it and clean it.

    I downloaded a video from Talon Enterprises, where there is a good cleaning video. The trainer did not use a jag in the cleaning process, but should I decide to use one, must I use a NYLON jag instead of the brass one I already have?

    Also, the front sight seems to be able to be shifted either right or left as there is a slot on the side of the sight. Is there a special "tool" to do this, as it seems that the further away from any metal instrument your Glock is, the safer the finish is?

    Thanks, and I am happy to be a member from Sarasota Florida.

    Danel,

    Brass or Nylon is fine. Neither will damage the bore or chamber.

    Personally, I use a .22 brass brush with a .45 patch and Breakfree. Any of the usual cleaners will work.

    I've never seen a Glock front sight that could be drifted right or left, but have seen aftermarket sights that are made for a dovetail. The standard Glock front sight is held in with a screw from the inside of the slide. It takes a 3/16" thinwall socket, if I recall correctly.

    Check out the TruGlo TFO sights. They're the best I've found for both daylight and night shooting.
    Here's what the ones on my G19 look like:

  3. glocks from the factory come with plastic sights on the front.it is held in place with a plastic wedge. after market steel sights use a small screw on thebottom of the sight. I do beleive this is correct.
