    I have seen two different videos on how to detail strip Glocks and wonder...is there a correct way to push out the pins? One showed the guy pushing them out from right side to left and the other video showed from left side to right. Does it really matter? How about any Glock armorers in the house...what say you?

    Thanks for assisting me on my way to enlightenment. :)

    On my 21 I always go left to right to push them out and right to left to push them in. Don't know why, but it works for me and I like being consistant with gun dissasembly/assembly.

    In the armorers' school they tell you: left-to-right (both going out and being put in).

    That is what I thought, until I had trouble getting the trigger

    pin back in. It goes back in better from right to left, because of

    the little spring on the slide lock lever. The other two pins I

    push left to right. My .02 :thumbsup:

    Thaks Delta, last night I just replaced two grooved triggers with smooth versions and found this to be true as well.
