    Disassembly Glock 27, dry fire required?

    Hi guys, newbie here. I've got a Glock 27 and to dissamble it for cleaning I must dry fire it first before I can remove the slide. I know it's by design but isn't this bad for the firing pin?

    Many individuals, as well as myself, regularly dry-fire our weapons for practice and they are fine. Glocks and XDs, as well as others, have been disassembled in this fashion for many years without issues. These modern firearms are designed to support this.

    Be careful... you'll wear out that Glock firing pin after about 1,123,014 dry fires.

    Yer finger will fall off first.

    Most centerfire pistols, Glock included, can be dry fired without harm.

    This was taken from the FAQ of another site:

    DRY FIRING OF GLOCK HANDGUNS

    Q. Is it true that dry firing is not damaging to a Glock?

    Q. You will not hurt the pistol a bit. Reason is the spring cups are polymer and that is what strikes the rear of the breachface. Dry fire away!

    Hope it gives you a little bit of peace of mind.

    The best part about this take down procedure is reminding yourself to always check the chamber!!!

    I always stick a pencil, eraser first, down the barrel of mine and dry fire it to make sure it is working properly after reassembly. That won't hurt it either and you know it will fire.

    By the way I sell these special glock pencils for a good price so pm me.

    There is nothing needed down the barrel to dry-fire a Glock. Pull the trigger, and you hear a click...

    This was an old function test for the 1911. If the pencil went flying, you knew the firing pin was operational.

    Well, I learned something today...

    I just don't see how it's necessary, I guess.

    Basically, it just ensures you put everything back together properly after detail-stripping the gun.

    It makes sense.

    My method would be to simply carry a gun that has been fired, but that's just me.

    Agreed. Mine has been fired about 1800 times since I last cleaned it. Firing pin works fine.
