Reassembling Issue (Slide)

Discussion in 'Gunsmithing' started by XD40EZO, Mar 15, 2011.

  1. Maybe its just me (my first Glock), but everytime I reassemble my G35, the Slide feels like its getting caught and/or snagging on something.

    But If I give it enough force (like racking the slide), it eventually reconnects, but it just doesnt feel right. Its not smooth.

    Is this normal for a Glock?
  2. Is the mag in it? Is the weapon dirty?

    Are you putting the recoil spring assembly in the correct place?
  4. The mag is out and its in prestine, spotless condition.

    Not normal, maybe you might wanna YouTube it and make sure you are doing it The same way
  6. Yes. On the second notch. But one thing i have noticed, when I take it down, the guide rod goes out of place maybe a couple of centemeters off of the notch, but still intact.

    But during the reassembly, it stays locked in place.
  7. I have and everyone seems to rack it back forcefully so I never see it snag.

    did you put the take down switch in backwards? the hook/ notched side should be facing the rear of the weapon
  10. I didnt mess with the trigger tho
  11. Nope, I didnt mess with that either.
  12. Well, at lunch, I went to a local gun store to find out whats going on. I picked up a G35 (like mine), G19, G30, G21, G22..etc. And they all felt the same way.

    Well, it confirmed that its definitely USER-ERROR and there's nothing wrong with my G35, but still felt unease that GLOCKS felt like that. No offense, but its just not smooth.

    Oh well... I still like it.
