    You bet it'll clean that Glock. It cleans so well, be sure to re-lube anything that will rust (not much on a Glock).I purchased an AGI Glock gunsmithing video a few years ago, he spent some time extolling the virtues of Simple Green as a cleaning agent.

    Simple green is great stuff but it contains water so I don't use it to clean anything that I can't disassemble completely and dry with compressed air or a heat gun.

    I use Simple Green. I take the slide apart but not the frame. Dry both and use a hair dryer to remove excess moisture.
    Then relub with synthetic motor oil.
    I have not cleaned the barrel in over 5000 rounds. See: http://www.schuemann.com/
    scroll to Information then Barrel Cleaning.

    Hoppe's #9 has worked for me for years. It's cheap and it works. That or makeup a batch of Ed's Red if you're really cheap.

    What Wadep said is correct. Waterbased cleaners should be avoided.
