Somwrt Lftur: Thanks for the video. I have disassembled at least 10 Glocks hundreds of
times over 20 years. Always racked the slide, pulled the trigger, pulled
the slide back about an eighth of an inch, pulled the little tabs down and
the slide slid forward off the frame. No problems ever until I just got a
36 and for the life of me that slide would stop after an inch or so of
forward movement. I could not get it off. I checked the manual and it said
to do exactly as I had done it for decades. Couldn't get it off. Came to
youtube and found your video. Worked perfectly. Wondered what changed in
this particular gun or are all newer Glocks taken apart this way. All of my
Glocks are Gen2 or Gen3. So maybe this is a Gen4 thing. Anyway thanks so
much for the video.
Glass-Man-252: Great video man. Helped me out tremendously! I wasn't pulling the trigger
after pulling down the release. Thanks again!
cfd11236: Not new to law enforcement, but new to the Glock family. Just purchased a
Glock 23 and your video helped me out tremendously. Thank you.
Talib Shakir-Smith: simple , easy , not much showing off. Great, non-annoying.. informative
video , thank you !
Denise Cesena: After many years of struggling with the release, this video made my life a
lot easier! Thanks buddy
Judy Rogers: Was struggling until I saw this video. Then first try I got it apart. I
am a new gun owner and want to take care of my Glock myself and not rely on
others. This was very helpful.
PlacerLode: Perfect , well done thanks!
tk7227: Extremely helpful! I thought there was something wrong with me! Thanks!
David Burch: Here is a tool to make it easy to remove the slide for us with weak/damaged
Slide Removal Tool
Komet163B: The whole Glock slide removal thing has really made me dislike these guns.
The tiny, slide remove tab, on one side, tore into my thumb and actually
cut it. If I had three hands, maybe, I could manage it. I had two gun
store employees trying to demonstrate how to get the damn thing off. I
tried it for about 8 minutes and gave up and just handed it back and left
the store. Doing the same thing, later, with a Smith M&P 9 was
ridiculously easy in comparison.. If you have any hand problems, like I
do, with tendinitis, you can forget about the Glock.
namron2048: Thanks.. learning this technique is helpful
Marc Downs: It certainly helps to see it done once. Thanks for this. It was EXTREMELY
itp757: THANK YOU!!!! my manual didn't say anything about pulling the trigger I've
been sitting here for the last half hour thinking I had defective
LMSTactical: @rchysell Wow! Your comment made my day! :) I am happy that it helped you
and have fun with your new Glock. If you are new to Glocks, you will love
it. I tried hard for years to not get into Glocks but after my first (A
Glock 19) I was hooked. Stay Safe!
LMSTactical: Hahahah exactly! Such an important and simple thing but nobody knows about
it unless someone shows them. Thanks for checking the video out :)
LMSTactical: @paulbhm Sweet! I am always happy to see hat one of my very first youtube
videos is still helping people! Enjoy the 19. I carried one for years and
it never let me down. Stay safe and thanks for the comment.
David Basham: Awesome, I just got my Glock 19 over the weekend and was having trouble
getting the slide off. This works every time. Thanks!!
LMSTactical: @homegrow3r Thank you for the comment and I am happy that you got something
from the video. Stay safe brother.
LMSTactical: Agreed! Thanks for stopping by. Stay safe.
LMSTactical: @chufa72 Awesome!!! i am happy to have helped you. Stay safe and enjoy your
Jim Wilkes: I know the first method is what most guys use, and I was able to do this
just once. My hands are in pretty bad shape, very weak. Can you explain
what you do on 2nd method after pulling back the slide. The captioning
didn't work here and I don't know what you did. Thanks Jim
LMSTactical: Isn't that always the way it is haha
LMSTactical: @hankthesilverlab Outstanding! I know you will love your new Glock. It's a
reliable weapon. Thanks for the post and stay safe.
Joe Tittiger: Took me forever because it is was not clear that the slide release must be
pulled down on BOTH sides.
Apehanger814: Love my Glock 22. Definately easiest gun to strip and clean. Even changing
slide plate cover is simple
sayitfast: my fingers thank you!!!
LMSTactical: Dont give up. Make sure its unloaded.... work the slide once, then use the
method shown on the video. let us know when you get it off. Remember... you
must pull the trigger to release the slide.
LMSTactical: @Superdog246 Thank you for your comment. I made this video long ago because
so many of my students were having trouble with this and I am veru happy
that it is still assisting some people. I may re shoot the video, sometime
because back then... I was just learning how to create videos for youtube
:) Thanks agi9n and stay safe!
LMSTactical: Sorry that I missed your comment my friend. I am happy to have assisted you
a bit. Thanks for watching and for the kind comment. Stay safe.
OMAR REED: @LMSTactical The regular way I could get the slide off like 1 outta 5
times, bruised the hell outta my hand. I carry mine with me 24/7, I"m
working in Sanaa Yemen, so that "Stay safe brother." means alot, thanks
brother. Stay safe and righteous.
aop12774: Thanks with this I know it says that it the manual about the handle holdbut
nothing about pulling the trigger. I was really struggling to remove the
slide thanks for your help.
LMSTactical: :) :) Tell them... they are welcome.
ImWthStoopid: Great Video!!!!!! I carried a Sig 228 from the 90s through to now. I am at
home with them...but this is my first experience with a Glock. I was
completely screwed on getting the damned thing apart until I saw this
tenderscootch: wont that damage the striker mine makes a really weird thud when no snap
cap is used
LMSTactical: Sorry about that... I should have made that clear. Thanks for the comment
Joseph Smith: Thank you. I struggled with my new Glock until watching the video. Other
videos pull the trigger first. This didn't work for me. Thanks again!
LMSTactical: Sorry that I missed your comment my friend. I will make a newer better
video showing the technique ASAP.
LMSTactical: Outstanding! I am very happy to have assisted with the technique. Stay safe
and thanks for posting your comments.
LMSTactical: No... it is the way they are designed. There is no other way to release the
slide without dropping the hammer... that I know of. If you find another
way, please post it here. Thanks.
glennwih: Do I use a hammer? lol
hankthesilverlab: I also just got a Gen 4 - G19 yesterday, my first Glock. Had to buy an
aftermarket (IGB) 4 1/4" barrel though, cause in Canada anything shorter is
prohibited. Sigh. Thanks for the vid!
Juan Vazquez: I just purchased a new Glock 23 Gen 4...OMG ! I CANNOT freaking get the top
slide off! followed the video to the T...what the heck !!!!!!!!!
OMAR REED: best by far example to releasing glock slides
LMSTactical: You are more than welcome :) Thanks for watching and for leaving the
comment. Stay safe.
subzzndubzz: You would think they would say that in the disassembly instructions that
came with the weapon but I guess they wanted to get YouTube searches for
their product boosted.
LMSTactical: Noooooo! Hahaha
rchysell: Just got my new Glock 19 Gen 4 and was having trouble removing the slide.
This video has made my day. Thanks for the great tip.
ffnovice7: I forgot to pull the trigger. Thank you.
chufa72: Thank you. The instructions did not mention anything about squeezing the
trigger. I was having trouble and your video helped.
