    Glock Problem

    My glock 19 that I never thought would have a problem just did today. After I got done putting my weekly 200 rounds through it I field stripped it to clean it before putting it up. When I began cleaning it I noticed in the back of the trigger frame there was a broken spring. After reviewing my parts diagram Im almost certain it is the trigger spring. How should I go about fixing this problem? And is this something I would want to do myself or should I take it to the my dealer and have him fix it. If I go the dealer route, how much should it cost to fix it?, because I don't want to get hit over the head to fix a simple problem. Also, has anyone else had this problem happen to them? I have put over 20,000 rounds through it, so Im not too worried about reliablility, but at the same time I would hate for this to happen when I really needed it to work.

    Glocks are very simple to work on if you have some basic mechanical skills. I take my G21, and G30 completely apart at least once a year for a deep cleaning.

    Do a search on the internet, and you will find instructions on the diassembly.

    It sounds like an easy fix with a .10 part. Go to your dealer and ask for the name of a Glock Armorer. They can fix it for you in about 2 minutes if they have the part.
    If you happen to be near one of the scheduled GSSF matches, go see the armorer on duty. They have all the parts and fix everything for free.

    For a simple spring change I would have it done locally and would not ship the gun back for something minor like that.

    Call:
    The Bullet Stop
    2625 W. Pawnee
    Wichita, KS 67213
    Ph: 316.945.3331

    Find out if they have a resident gunsmith or ask if they can point you to one in Wichita that will do it for you while you wait.

    It should not cost you more than 10 bucks, labor included. Its a five minute job and less than a dollar for the spring.
    If I were you, I would just go ahead and replace them all. Its been my experiance that the springs go one after another. It wont cost very much, and the armorer has the gun anyway.
    If you were closer to me, I would do it for cost of parts, its no big job.

    I'd probably just chuck the thing and get a 1911

    That's a good idea just to go ahead & have them all changed out.
    Might as well for the cheap cost of the springs.
    Good lookin' out SIXTO.

    Yes, it is very easy to do. Go on one of the GLOCK forums for more assistance. Spring is very cheap. Basically just push out the pin, pull out the trigger assembly, slip on the new spring, push it back in place, reinsert pin. I changed out the trigger springs on my G19 & G23. EASY.

    This is an easy fix & a great way / introduction to start playing with & tuning your own w/o paying through the nose! Go to http://www.lonewolfdist.com/ and get three things... 1) the book 'the complete glock reference' 2) the part you need 3) the ultimate glock armorers tool. Read the book & have fun! It shows everything from detail strip to modifications.

    Go here and type in trigger spring in the search box. The standard spring is the 5 lb. spring. it is $2.49.

    This is one reason some of us replace the stock coil spring with the NY-1 spring.

    Thats a good idea to replace all the springs, Im definitely going to do that. Im going to keep the stock spring setup, its lasted me 20,000+ rounds so if I have to replace them after another 20,000 then thats fine with me. I like 1911's but glock definitely has me sold on their product, I own three and the G19 is my favorite. I think I might start shooting my Sig more, its growing on me. The reason I practice with glocks alot is because thats what I carry at work, so thats what I think I should become most proficient with.
