    so i just got my used glock 26, while field stripping it, sometime the slide would slides on and off real smooth, other times it would get stuck tight with the frame half way through and i would have to force it out....i feel like i was gonna break something forcing it so hard

    what am i doing wrong?

    Slide lock not completely released. Make sure both left and right sides of the slide lock are pulled all the way down.

    also, toward the muzzle of the gun, the slide is not as tight with the frame as it is in the rear, if you press down on the slide...you can see it moves slightly...is this normal? my cz slide and frame are tighter than shawn johnson's vag

    This is normal. Sometimes the guiderod is sitting low when you unlock the slide

    Not really sure. Might just have to do it a time or two until the guiderod pops back into position so you can get the slide off. Does not seem to as much of a issue on uncaptured guidrods.

    I've heard of people doing that before... I've actually considered trying it.
    Anything special I should know?

    I'm kidding.
    I've never actually done it and I probably wouldn't.

    I do actually know people that do it... and they swear by it. :dunno:
    I do it the old fashioned way though.

    Just check that it's empty visually and by touch, double check, then dry fire at a safe spot. 99.9% of glock users have never had an ND while cleaning. :dunno:

    I'd be afraid a piece of soap or crud would get stuck in there.
    I use hoppes, tri-flow and airgun

    Oh I agree. I've never personally had a problem with it... but it's still a bad design.

    I would also be worried about all that lead in the same spot where my dishes are cleaned. Even if you washed your guns and dishes in different loads (dishwasher) it's just not worth being lazy. Lead poisoning is nasty shit.
