How to unload and disassemble the glock:

 

  • Keep your fingers off the trigger and point the gun in a safe direction.
  • Press the magazine release and remove the magazine.
  • Pull the slide back and lock it open with the slide stop lever.
  • Check for remaining ammunition. 
  • Pull the slide back to release the stop lever. The slide will close. Point the gun in a safe direction and pull the trigger to release the firing pin.
  • Grip the gun. Hold the gun in one hand, with four fingers around the top of the slide, and the thumb holding the grip.
  • Pull back the slide. Using the four fingers on the top of the slide, pull it back about 1/10th of an inch.

Note: If you pull it back too far, you will need to pull the slide all the way back and restart the process.

  • Using your other hand, pull down both sides of the slide lock lever. Push the slide forward with your four fingers until it has separated from the receiver of the gun.
  • Push the spring forward slightly and lift it away from the barrel. 

Note: The spring is under pressure, so be careful when removing it.

  • Hold the barrel by the extruding lugs. Lift the barrel while pushing forward slightly. Raise and pull the barrel out of the slide.
  • (Optional) Once the Glock has been disassembled, you can proceed to clean the gun. You do not need to disassemble the Glock any further than this to properly clean and maintain it.
  •  You can reassemble the gun by reversing the above steps.

 

Safety:

 

Glock pistols are designed with three independent safety mechanisms to prevent accidental discharge. The system, designated "Safe Action" by Glock, consists of an external integrated trigger safety and two automatic internal safeties: a firing pin safety, and a drop safety.

 

  • Note that most newly purchased glocks don't come with the safety lever.

  • The parts of the Glock

 

The Slide:

glock-slide.jpg

Spoiler

The Glock Slide is the spring loaded part of the Glock semi-automatic pistol that moves back and forth as a pistol is fired. It houses the firing pin/striker and extractor. As the slide moves back, the extractor removes the spent cartridge from the chamber. As the slide moves forward a fresh cartridge is pushed from the magazine into the chamber of the barrel.

 

The Barrel:

glock-barrel.jpg

Spoiler

The Glock Barrel is the long metal tube that protrudes from the front of the gun. It contains and directs the pressurized gases that propel the fired bullet in a fixed direction. The barrel also contains the rifling (grooves on the inside of the barrel) which spin the bullet as it discharges from the gun.

 

The Recoil Spring Assembly:

glock-19-recoil-spring.jpg

Firing Pin

Firing Pin Safety

glock-firing-pin-safety.jpg

Spoiler

This bar locks into a corresponding slot of the slide assembly and keeps the slide from coming off the frame.

 

Locking Block

glock-locking-block.jpg

This needs a lot of improvement, you really need to add more information to this guide. Original and non-modified Glock handguns have no safety-lever like the one in your picture. I advise you to focus on one Glock handgun model, either the Glock 17 or Glock 19 (the most commonly used Glock handguns by players) and not just "Glock pistol", this will definitely prevent any misunderstandings. You may also spend some more time on improving the How to "disarm" a Glock tutorial. 

 

Perhaps you can add some more additional Glock handgun models, magazine capacities, and information about ammunition feeding.
