    I have a G19C that I'm convinced has a crack in it (circled spot). My question to you all (especially Glock Armours) is, is the area circled a part I can replace or will I have to get a new frame??

    That's part of the frame, it's not something that can be replaced without replacing the frame.

    It's probably a molding void, sometimes they'll look like cracks but they're not. In that particular spot it'd only be something to worry about if it started to spread.

    I'd call Glock and speak to the Warranty Service Department, and offer to email them a picture.

    Why so much grease and oil on the frame?

    Oh ok, hope you're right that it's just a void, thanks for your help.

    The only problem I have had with overly lubricating was a crunchy trigger that developed over two years since the last detailed cleaning/inspection.
    I guess it collected a little funk.

    Danny's probably answering this if he hasn't already dropped his face in his cereal...

    You need 6 drops of lubricant for a Glock - 7 if you are generous;
    1 drop for the frame - the connector
    2 drops for the barrel
    3 drops for the slide

    ...but read your owners manual! These aren't 1911s.

    Crunchy anything (probably) means too much oil has attracted dirt and grit. The firing pin channel must be a mess and I'd be certain a complete detail strip is in order.

    I don't overly lube that area. My armorer has done a thourough breakdown and I cleaned the parts. I work on boats and get splashed with saltwater frequently. I just can't help splashing on the CLP.
    If you love it, lube it!

    What area? The firing pin channel gets NO lube.

    Install marine spring cups if it makes you feel better...

    Hahaha, it's funny because my first handgun was a 1911 type and I used to drench that thing. Thanks for the heads up, I didn't know it wasn't very good for it to over lube it. I'll make sure and oil it up the said way next time. :wavey:

    +2. I dare think about the amount of gunk thats gonna build in that thing. But to answer your question it doesn't look to me like a manufacturer fault, looks like a possible mold void left by a human hair possibly. Has the piece given you any problems since?

    to answer your question: that locking block takes most of the pressure/stress in that area..........I dont think you have a need to worry.

    Yes sir, you are right
    I don't lube the firing pin channel. I typed before thinking. Sorry. I meant to say on the inside of the slide I don't lube like other parts of the glock. I don't drown all the parts but I do use a thin coat in several contact places. 7 drops isn't enough for me. My biggest thing is lubing the sights to stop rusting.
    My personal Glocks don't get as wet and I lube them somewhat less.
    We do have marine cups installed.

    Glock recommends only 7 drops because that's all you need. Glocks will not rust. The frame is polymer, and the slide/barrel is tenifer treated. Oh btw, I've never ever lubed sights on a gun... never had them rust.

    The stock sights are plastic.

    Unless it appears to get worse over time, no worries.
