    It definitely shouldn't have, those Should be pretty snug, I'd replace it and if it still comes out that easily take it in to be looked at

    I put a DRY patch on a puller and cleaned out the channel. Liner came out on my rod! :wow: So I just took it off of the patch & puller, re-inserted it in its place and no problem. Just pushed it back in place with a wooden dowel. Replace if you wish, but, from my experience, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I agree. I've had a few come out like that. I would just clean the channel and channel liner and push it back in.. Never had a problem from any of the Glocks it happen to..

    To install a new liner use the old liner to seat the new one in the slide being that the old liner does not fit snug. you might need to use a very small hammer to tap the liner in the slide enough to seat the new liner. hope this hepls. or you could find a wooden dowel to seat the new liner. you should not have to beat the hell out of it to get it down and seated properly. their is a tool that is made just for the process but i dont know where you would buy it maybe brownells.

    A Bic Stick pen hull works well to push a new liner in.

    Thanks guys. This is my sixth Glock, second trade in and this is the first time I've had this happen. I will finish cleaning it and see if it holds. If not I will pick up a new one. The spring cups had a lot of dirt/grim between them and the liner when I got it apart. I take it you seat the liner all the way down the back side of the breech face.

    Yes, just make sure to insert the beveled end first. It shouldn't be overly easy to put it back in, but you shouldn't have to bang on it too hard either.
