We all know that Glocks are very reliable handguns. But that doesn’t mean they still don’t need regular cleaning and maintenance, just like all firearms. All mechanical devices eventually fail due to wear and tear. It is important to regularly inspect your firearms to ensure they are still in good working order.

sootch00 goes over how to disassemble, clean, maintain, and inspect a Glock.
