Trying to take apart my Gen 2 G19 for a full cleaning. Can't get the pin out of above the trigger. I've beaten this thing like a red headed step child and it's not moving.

Any suggestions?

Is the gen 2 a 2 pin? If it goes through the slide lock I find it helpful to wiggle the slide lock while pushing the pin through.

Sorry, all I have are gen 3's so it may not be much help.

Stop beating on it. It might mushroom. move the slide stop up and down side to side a bit

it's really a 2 pin glock ( trigger pin and the trigger housing pin )
just lay it on a roll of tape

and move the slide stop lever up-down push in-and pullout as you push on the pin ... push it out from the left side of the gun


the slide stop lever is in the slot between 1 and 2

Wiggle the slide release while your moving the pin, it's caught in one of the grooves on the pin.
Whay hobbydad said. The first is never ever beat a pin in or out. When re-installing this pin you go from right to left and wiggle the slide stop. If you go in from left to right you have to pass one of ridges to reach the final. Just get into the habit of removing the pins from left to righ and then going right to left when re-installing.Remember these pins just push out with not much pressure. On a new weapon they can sometimes be very tight. I hope you did not damage the spring of the slide stop.

it's from the leftside to the rightside and when you reinstall them it's from the right to left :whistling:

If you need a new stock like lock lever, due to the current one being bent let me know. I have a bunch of leftovers. They are from 3-pin models so they might not fit.

I would not use a hammer of any kind. It's not needed. Just be patient a coax it out. It's like a woman, you gotta talk sweet to it. Treat her right and she will kill for you.
