GLOCK USA - PARTS Refusal

Recommended Posts

I wonder if folks know that buying internal factory Glock pistol parts from Glock USA is now pretty much prohibited, unless you have an *active (i.e., not expired) Glock Certificate for the 'successful completion' of one of Glocks armorer courses?

The re-activation of one's Certificate (for the successful completion of one of Glocks armorer course) is as simple as paying Glock USA $300-$400 for the course, plus time and travel expenses, and repeating the same class you took last time.  No *active Certificate = no parts.

As far as I know, that's not a change of policy. And you can buy those parts from third party sources.

Personally, I enjoy taking the armorers course and will continue to do so.

do you pay the costs or attend by some other method...?  

I'm not a cop, or anything like that. I paid for it myself the last time, and will do so the next time.

I learned how to do almost everything excepting machining (that's probably available) on YouTube before it got WOKE.  I rarely buy parts from Glock USA, but I have picked some up at GSSF events

They've done this since the 1980s. Same with H und K, FN, Steyr, and others.

Colt won't sell parts because they don't even have enough for their own use.

I don't think so. I was a novice in the late nineteen nineties; living in Atlanta with easy access to Smyrna and friendly folks. I always purchased factory made replacement parts from Glock for my Glock because anything else is just good luck. I got my basic armorer course on the original Glock Talk because most folks then traded in facts. After moving to Texas in early 2007, I used the Armorer's Parts list, paid parts for cost and a $5-$10 mailing fees. I didn't attend a actual Glock Course until 2011 where I was awarded a Certificate, not a Certification, and continue to get my parts at cost until the Certificate expired. Then I was blackballed for life or a re-certification fee (course cost) which i choose not to thank you. that is when some foul soul inserted his/her capitalistic ways in to Perfection while nobody was looking. The younger generation thinks that is ok; of course almost all of them don't know xyzt. I have retired from the cause and beg strangers for help when i need something off the amorers list; but just wait until i ask them for all the internal replacment springs for a Gen 3 G33.  Adios.
