I hope I don't come across in the same light but there's a reason the majority of people do not need to disassemble the pistol any more than a field strip. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen parts in backwards, missing parts, or just been given a box of parts to reassemble. That said, the guns are very easy to work with once you know how things are supposed to come apart and go back together.
The trigger pin is locked into place by the slide stop lever. The trigger pin has a notch cut around its circumference. The slide stop lever fits into this notch and prevents the trigger pin from being removed.
To remove, apply pressure to the left side of the trigger pin with your armorer's tool while, at the same time, moving the slide stop lever fore and aft. The idea is to "center" the hole in the slide stop lever around the trigger pin. Do *not* use a hammer.
What in NoVa are you? I'll be in Fairfax one evening next week and will be glad to show you.

Jiggling is best but there's nothing wrong with a light tap from a rubber mallet to free it. Don't go whacking at it though, it should free up with a light hit.
Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

I know this is not what you ask but,
I have never needed to take any of my Glocks down that far.
I just hose it with Break Free and use compressed air to
blow out the whole thing.
This worked on all seven of the Glocks I've owned.

THERE IS NEVER A NEED TO STRIKE A GLOCK WITH A HAMMER, never.

The pins are replaced from right to left. Never try to push them out the left side.
If you don't know how to properly, and in order, dissamble and re-assemble a gun, please, just don't do it for safety sake.
There is plenty of information on the NET on how to do this...

Disassemble a Glock ??? Why ???
Every couple of weeks, I lock the slide back and throw it in the dishwasher, gets a good cleaning
It is a standing joke about Glocks, don't do it

The second rule: "Bring enough gun"

You'll need to pick up on the slide stop and wiggle it a bit to get that top pin out of your Glock. All Glock pins push out with the correct tool......never go to using a rubber mallet and a punch. If you do...you're doing something wrong. I always push my pins out from the right side (or the ejection port side). Make this a habit, and you'll be okay.

I am planning to go to Blue Ridge tomorrow afternoon and try out IDPA (I've never done it before) if I can find some 9mm. I'd be happy to help if you need, I am no firearms expert but I do have a G26 that has gotten heavy use at the range and carried
And, personally, I've only ever been to one gun store that didn't have an elitist attitude (in Roanoke). It seems to come with the territory.

Search the web for Glockmeister.
That's a gun store that specializes in Glocks. They used to have a pretty good section on how to take a Glock apart. They also sell that Armorer's Tool that everyone needs to take a Glock apart.

The gun is fixed...I figured it all out. Silver Eagle Group (in Ashburn) has IDPA competitions once or twice a month. Far nicer facility and staff. I would go check them out as well.

How about using Gun Scrubber and letting it dry?

There's a Glock dealer on 211 west of Warrenton, just south/west of 'Little' Washington (the name excapes me now), that I've bought from in the past. Excellent Glock dealer who helps you tear the gun down several times before he lets you walk out the door. He's a little out of the way, but his prices are good and he's really helpful and loves to talk Glock.
