So I finally found a good deal on my first glock and decided to go big. Picked up a used Gen 3 G20 w/5 mags, a few aftermarket parts and some ammo. The gun appears to be in good shape and I like the extended slide stop and mag release. I am really looking forward to shooting it but I have one question. When I remove the slide the aftermarket SS guide rod just falls out, is this normal? None of my other handguns do this, I always to have remove the guide rod before I can remove the barrel for cleaning. Now if I can find a good deal on a used 50gi conversion, my big bang mission will be complete. Taking it out to the range tonight with my Vepr-12 for some heavy Monday night target practice. posted using Outdoor Hub Campfire Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
