Got an old 17 in my collection, a 1986 gen 1 pistol. The nearest Glock armorer is about 50 miles away at a gun/sporting goods store. The armorer is the stores gunsmith, and I've bought Glock parts from them before. Been wanting to buy a new slide hold-open for my old Glock. Have been to the store twice to get the hold-open, but have missed the armorer both times and the other employees have no idea what piece I want. My Daughter and her police officer boyfriend were going to the store to buy something cop related. I thought I would just send some money and get my part maybe. UHHH...NO...! The armorer won't sell Glock parts anymore unless he puts them on... and charges for it. Daughter said they were, and especialy the armorer, quite terse to her boyfriend! So is this the normal thing for gun store based Glock armorers? Not that big a deal, I have pretty much taken my business elsewhere anyhow as the clerks are rude and the prices high. They can't seem to figure out why business is declining(was discussing that with one of the friendlier clerks awhile back). I mean, I sort of understand the Glock part thing. A guy could shoot his foot off or something trying to stick a part on a gun, and maybe sue the store. But you would think the folks would at least be nice to the customers! Oh well. I'll just order my part online and be done with it. Only Glock armorer, short of a police department armorer, in the state is now useless to me.
