    Disassembly of Glock: What am I doing wrong???

    I am having one awful time trying to disassemble my G19-- and 26-- when it comes to the two " push down things" on either side: can't get them down without a real effort-- three, four, five tries. I've seen the videos , followed them, and still have a very difficult time. What is the secret? I see videos with guys taking their Glock down in seconds!!! Please help this frustrated Glock owner. Thanks.

    Make sure you've unloaded the trigger first. Then ease back the slide ever so slightly, then pull down the tabs.

    WHEC724: I do, I do, I do! Thus the frustration.

    there really is no secret
    are you pulling the slide back just slightly, too little or too much won't work
    are you pulling both release tabs down fully, and at the same time?

    Someone, Brownells I think, carries a set of slide release levers that are slightly bigger, allowing you to get a better hold of them. Might be worth looking into.

    O.K., Guys... I think I finally got it. I believe I was pulling the slide back just a little too far. Thanks for all the comments;I really appreciate it. Is this a great forum, or what!?

    After you pull down both tabs you may have to apply slight forward pressure on the slide. If all else fails, go to a gun store and have them run you through disassembly. Good luck.

    I found it easiest to use your grip and squeeze to pull the slide back slightly. Put grip, just below slide in the crux of your thumb, wrap fingers around slide and squeeze. Then pull down on BOTH tabs. Be sure to get both. That is the hard part and fingernails help. Release your grip. Then pull the trigger. Last time I did it that way, the slide came right off.

    The only secret is hand strength and technique. Its really easy once you get it down.

    Unload pistol. depress trigger so it locks back. hold pistol in a regular shooting grip with one hand. Wrap your fingers up over the top of the slide and ease it back only a tiny bit while pulling down on both tabs evenly and straight down with your weak hand. Then release grip on slide and move it forward.

    Once you learn that technique, it only takes seconds to disassemble.
