    Buck up. I'm a Glock armorer and managed to do exactly the same thing once. Take the big (first) pin out first, and put it back in first. If you take it out, you have to take out the smaller pin and the slide stop spring out before replacing the first pin. Otherwise, you get what you got.

    Thanks, that does make me feel a little better. Though yours sounds like an oversight, mine was just stupidity. Live and learn

    This is a common mistake for glock noobs. My question is why pull the pins for a cleaning? I never do unless I need to do some work.

    Cool, crazy, scary dog in your avatar photo!! Glad you got your Glock fixed. I have considered getting a Glock 27, because .40 was my favorite caliber. But I got a 26 a couple years back, it became my favorite gun, and I am growing to like 9mm a lot more! Still want a 27 though...

    Had you needed more than 3 rounds to get the job done I hope you would have had your pooch with you!

    The first thing that should be done after assembling a firearm is to test fire it...how else will you know that the gun's functionality hasn't been compromised.

    I watched a youtube vid where the guy went into detail about how you had to put the pins back in a certain way. Now I see what that was all about.

    Sometimes people trade in guns they "Worked" on and screwed up,by carrying a used gun you've never shot it could have anything from a broken firing pin to extractor/ejector issues not to mention feeding issues,your rolling the dice.
    In my CHL class several years a go an older guy showed up with a Luger,when he went to qualify the gun wouldn't fire,after checking it out the firing pin was broken and wasn't hitting the primer,this guy had kept this gun in his house loaded for home defense.He is lucky he discovered it was broken before he had to use it for SD.
    I'm pretty sure there are many more out there that buy a gun put bullets in it and without ever firing a shot expect it's going to work.

    It looked like someone had put a lot of oil or something down inside it and I wanted to clean it out. Instead, I screwed up. I guess because I am pretty good with building 1911's, and I had disassembled my M&P to bare frame I felt "qualified". I was wrong.

    Yea, I would have probably gotten the 26 had I found a similar deal. A local store had a Glock 26 that had had the trigger guard "de-horned" and the finger grooves smoothed out (and not a super quality job) and they wanted $425 plus tax. I got the 27 in unmolested form for $400 out the door so I decided to go with the .40. After shooting it, I can say the recoil isn't any more than my Kimber Pro Carry. It's a nice gun.

    Good observation on your part but your experience is exactly why you should shoot the hell out of what you are going to carry before betting the family jewels on its reliability. This is moreso true on a new toy because other hands have touched it during manufacturing and we all know everyone else but us is prone to having a bad day!

    Too bad we don't know if our toys were manufactured on a monday or friday. Those are supposed to be the bad QC days for obvious reasons.
