I shot a GSSF match last week, which entailed shooting my G17 in two divisions. I took it apart to clean it today and this part fell on the floor.

Upon further inspection it was one of these broken off parts in the receiver.

What is that called, the locking block? Locking lug? Is it a user-replaceable part? I think I've had it out before with one or two pins. I would like the opportunity to fuck things up myself instead of paying UPS Next Day Air shipping to Glock.

 

This is a 2001 GSSF Tenth Anniverary model 17, and it happens to be about 17 years old. It has had almost all 147s, some plated, some jacketed, mostly with Solo 1000, recently with N320.

Locking block. Easy to replace, see YouTube. Funny thing is it was broken and still shooting just fine. Got to love Glock

Bummer, but it’s an easy fix. Push two pins out remove broken locking block, put new block in then push pins back in. If you can tie your shoelaces without help you should be able to handle this repair.

To bad it didn’t happen before the match you could have had the on-site armorer fix it.

I vaguely remember last time you worked on a Glock bad things happened. Are you sure you wouldn't rather pick up curling instead?

Lone Wolf makes a billet one.

Only "trick" to removal is wiggling the slide stop/lock/release lever instead of just forcing the one pin, do the same on reassembly, and get the spring laid right.

It's a sign from God himself to buy a real gun. Harass the vendor enough and You might even get to buy a jersey too.

Gotta use stock Glock parts to be GSSF legal and to drink timmy tears. So I'll have to pass on the LW billet locking block and ZEV titanium pins.

How is Glock so good at diagnosing what is stock but USPSA can't figure it out? Oh well, guess we'll just make everything legal instead.

Only stock parts on a Glock break, so, if it is broken, or about to break, it is obviously stock.

With Glocktm Certified Armorers.  So, the 2 day USPSA RO class just needs to include about 55 armorer certifications, one for each manufacturer on the Production handgun list, then renewed annually, or Prod10 and Welfare Open can all shoot Glocks.

Jesus, dude.  When it comes to Glocks, you have more problems than a math teacher.

Actually, only stock Glocks run. Once you start replacing shit that doesn't need replacing, your shit stops running. So yea, aftermarket Glocks don't break because you can't run more than a mag through them.

Correct. It’s the G35s heavily modified to be ‘competitive’ in Limited that always shit their pants at matches.
The Production M/GMs who are smart enough not to tune the gun to death enjoy a reliable gun that really will run when packed with mud and cleaned once a year.

(Yes. We all know Production Bs and Cs with highly tweaked triggers that don’t run. We’re not talking about those guns, since they prove my point anyway.)
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.

"Don't fucking tinker with it" is a golden rule in this game. I can not recall a single stock production firearm in a match fail unless it was user error (shitty reloader, sticking your hands behind a slide so it can't cycle, etc).

That's bad advice now - if you don't at least change your trigger you will be bumped to open; safer to stipple and change a hammer (if you have one) so eagle-eyed RO can see you're not trying to slide by on a stock factory gat.


On injured reserve.

I have never seen or heard of this part breaking. You need to post this on a timmy site to get the butthurt flowing.
