    Yes. The good deal is that they can order parts directly from Glock, and at a discount.

    Thanks Danny:wow:That was a quick reply!
    My friend brought me a Glock that he had purchased second hand.
    The extractor is pretty worn, as well as the firing pin safety, although both are working well.
    This is my first "job" as an armorer.
    Can I just order the parts from Glock, and replace them for him at cost price?

    Your pricing is up to you, but don't forget to include shipping. I don't make money as an armorer, but I choose not to loose money as an armorer.

    Thanks Danny.
    The parts are so easy to replace and check, but I spend about an hour cleaning the gun thoroughly!
    What parts would you recommend as a start, that I should always keep in stock?

    From the way you talk, you are not a GLOCK certified armorer.

    If you aren't, you cannot order parts from GLOCK.

    The info you ask for should have been included in your class if you are a GLOCK armorer.

    If I misunderstood that you arent, I apologize.

    GSD17 Apology accepted. I would not say that I am an Armorer if I wasn't.
    The info, I believe was not included in the class.
    For me it was a fast moving class, a lot of interesting info (that I had not heard before) in a short period of time. I was busy writing a lot down, so it is possible that I missed some.

    There is a parts order form in the back of your manual.

    Thanks Danny, but I did know that.
    From your experience which parts would be good to have a few of?
    All the springs, I presume.
    Also I am sure that people will loose spring cups.

    Sorry guys, now I understand the confusion.
    You knew that their were prices in the Armorer's manual, so was wondering why I was asking if Armorers had to pay.
    Well I remember Glock saying they would do free upgrades to any older pistol needing it.
    I have seen this done at a GSSF shoot, and thought that we may be able to get the parts ourselves and do they same.
    The pistol I was given falls into this category, prefixed before YB

    Contact them w/serial number, they will ship the parts to you, you replace them, provide the required information and return the old parts to them.

    The upgrade kits are still free for those older, 2-letter serial number Glocks. That is all that is free.

    Factory Glock armorers at GSSF outdoor matches will replace any worn parts on any Glock free.

    As far as stocking parts, I keep a few 9mm-3 followers, G17 mag springs and G19 mag springs on hand for rebuilding old, used 9mm magazines. That's all.
