I mean... It's a .22, so...
What an endorsement. I'd say that's impressive as hell. Thoroughly clean and lube it. Pump another several thousand rounds through it. Carry on.After several thousand rounds through my Glock 44 I decided to completely disassemble the slide. The extractor and firing pin safety were so carboned up I can't believe they worked. It was difficult to get them apart. Lesson learned. I would certainly recommend everyone else does it.
Does what?I would certainly recommend everyone else does it.
I said COMPLETELY disassemble slide. So you remove your firing pin, extractor depressor, ejector, firing pin safety, along with the barrel and recoil spring?...every time you shoot it? I learn something new every day.Does what?
Clean a gun after a few thousand rounds?
How about after every use?
Good suggestion to do that-periodically without Complete disassembly-thanksSomething I have found when disassembling a highly carboned up slide or frame and its internals is aerosol CLP injected into all the openings, nooks and crannies and leave it sit overnight. It helps break things down a bit for easier disassembly.
I do a complete disassembly for cleaning after every time I shoot. Start to finish it takes me about 10-15 minutes, no time at all.I said COMPLETELY disassemble slide.

THIS. Every time.I have 12,000 shots out of my G44 and have had no issues but I clean it every range trip. I try to clean my guns after every range trip. They of course get dirty quickly.
What did you end up running? Factory spring? Lighter? Heavier? Considering going to a 6 lb spring.I have over 20,000 rounds fired through my G44 and the only time I have disassembled the slide was when trying different firing pin spring weights. So I have only had the slide stripped maybe 4-5 times in 20,000 rounds. I just field strip occasionally and a normal cleaning and haven't had any issues.
Yes it is. Stock weight is 5.5 pounds. I haven't had any light primer strikes while using the 5 and spring while shooting CCI Mini Mags, AR Tactical, or Standard along with Aquila Super Extra. I haven't used any Remington or Winchester ammo in years due to their QC issues.Thats lighter, isnt it? I had some light strikes recently, going to run the 6# today at the range, see what happens.
I field strip every time I return from the range but I have only disassembled the slide once in 2 years. No real reason to clean Glocks as often as I do but it's a habit! My brother on the other hand has never cleaned his guns. jmoI do a complete disassembly for cleaning after every time I shoot. Start to finish it takes me about 10-15 minutes, no time at all.
THIS. Every time.
