how hard is it to install the lock that goes in the back of the slide???
I do believe that is a factory job and must be done when the gun is first made.
Hmmm.......I thought that was an aftermarket product that included a new side plate with the locking mechanism activated by a standard handcuff key. I was under the impression that the factory lock goes in the backstrap area and may still not be available.
Can someone clarify this, please?
Read the question again Bob, now, slower. I got it now, I was talking about the other lock, absolutly.
yeah im talking about the lock with the hand cuff key...
.......I think that all you would need to do is remove the original side plate and replace it with the new one and a few "lock" parts. I'm not sure Glock's Warranty Dept. would like this idea.
I have some question as to the reliability and durability of these aftermarket parts in a part of a pistol that has a lot of energy and movement imparted on it. Also, would a "breakage" of parts disable the normal functioning of your pistol (especially important if you're in the middle of a "social encounter?").
The lock in question is a Ghost Block, available from Ghost Inc.
Simple to install and works too.
I just got confirmation from Smyrna GA. that the new case and backstrap locks will only be offered as a purchase option and will not be available as an aftermarket purchase. It seems that the backstrap unit cannot be retrofitted into the older models without "dragons teeth" and the backstrap will need to be factory altered, as an indicator needs to protrude from the backstrap which will allow the user to feel if the firearm is in the locked mode. The current firearms are being shipped with the new model cases and a red cable lock, although the new model cases are moulded to accept the cylindrical case locks.
Any mechanical device is prone to failure...Thats why car warrenties are only "X" months or "XXX" miles
The best safety for any device is located between the operator's EARS
If that one fails, it just proves that Darwin was right!!!
