Breaking Down The Gun
Welcome to part 2 of 4 of my Gun Maintenance Series. Let's get into it shall we... As Professional Everyday Carriers, it is our job to make sure we have properly functioning equipment. After all, our lives may depend on it one day. As you have seen in part 1, examples of what could happen when trying to use an unkempt firearm.
Starting out, it can be a little intimidating to take your firearm apart, but I assure you its not as difficult as you might think. In part 2, we will be taking a close look at breaking down (also known as disassemble or takedown) my EDC firearm, the Glock 19. Of course yours may vary. In the future, I will personally add more videos of different firearms like the Smith and Wesson M&P Shield 9mm, The Ruger SR-22, and the Springfield XD.
When you take your firearm to the range a few times, the thought will eventually pop up into your mind that you will one day have to clean your firearm 😫.... but don't fear The EDC Guy is here.
There are different source you can use to help you accomplish the goal of breaking down your firearm.
The manufacturer's manual
Local gun store sales representatives
One of the most important things to do first is read the manufacture's manual that came with your firearm. This will help you get to know the parts you will be working with, give you an idea of the job ahead of you, and last but not least, help you avoid anything that will cause you to void your firearm's warranty 😊.
You might be asking yourself "Why do I need the other sources? The manual should have everything I need right?". The other sources are just as important because, and many seasoned gun owners will agree with me when I say this, the gun manufacturer's manual only tell half the story and will leave you high and dry! Here's what I mean, the owners manual tends to leave out key points like, the right amount of pressure to use when reinserting the spring or special maneuvering and finessing you might have to do to get certain part back into the correct position. So, when you combine all 3 sources you will be unstoppable. Practice makes perfect. Remember safety! safety! safety!
