    I would like to learn to completely dissect a Glock and put it back together. I would like to learn what components to polish, and why they are polished, etc. I would like to be able to buy all of the after-market custom goodies that are discussed on here, and install them myself---you know, the items that say, "minor gunsmithing needed". Essentially I would like to get Glock Armorer's training so that I can be my own Glock Armorer. This for my personal firearms and use only.

    Do you think that this can be accomplished with books or a DVD?

    As far as my knowledge / experience on working on firearms I can field strip most sporting firearms for cleaning. I can pretty much strip a Remington 1100 down to not much left. I can strip the trigger, bolt, and etc. assembly of an AR15 down to the last screw or spring. So I am not starting from, "This is a slide. This is a frame."

    I did a search on here recently for a book and found a thread, sort of like this thread, and one particular author was mentioned numerous times as author for the, "go to" book. Now I can't find that thread. Who is that author and what is the book?

    This DVD is on the Dillon site -- http://www.dillonprecision.com/cont.../11/Glock_Armorers_Course__amp__Technical_DVD

    There are two DVD's at Lone Wolfe that look interesting-- http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=4755
    http://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail.aspx?PROD=4756

    I would very much appreciate your input / advice.

    Thanks very much in advance!!!

    The book you want is available at www.lonewolfdist.com. for $29.95, The Complete Glock Guide (Ptooma). Lonewolf also has dvd's. I know of none that teach you polishing or part modification. The factory class does not teach it either.

    The Glocks used in the Armorer's class, have been dry fired so much, that the parts look like they have been polished.
    You will clearly know which parts need polishing and why, after having taken the course.
    There is a great animation shown, as well as a cut away Glock.
    I thought that it was $150 well spent.
    I also found this very helpful:http://www.sniperworld.com/glock/

    You can hide stuff, as well as make them transparent.

    This animation is AWESOME :thumbsup: if you go to this site you'll

    see the profile of a Glock 19 which you can actually click each piece

    and assemble the Glock yourself to view most all moving parts work.

    This should be pasted to all your PM Buddies. It states not to copy

    on the video, so IMO it is a "Sniper Site" I would follow the rules!

    :thumbsup:

    How does one enroll in a Glock Armorers Course? I looked on the training website, but it didn't have any contact information. Also...I'm just a normal civilian. Can I enroll?

    You have to be a LEO or an employee of a FFL enrolled in Glocks "Stocking Glock Dealer" program.

    Just went to armorer training this week. Great class if you can go. I spent my own funds and glad I did.
