Glock 36 Striker Issues?
« on: July 17, 2019, 11:43:35 AM »
As the subject line says, I have a Glock 36 with a striker that seems to be sticking. Would like to hear any suggestions/comments about it before I start trying to replace parts or taking it to a gunsmith. I bought it brand new about four years ago and shot approximately 500 rounds.

I am not a Glock Guru, but you should not be having any issues with that low of a round count.  Sounds like it might be a weak spring that sits around the striker?  Or is the spring in backwards.  Have you ever fully stripped it?  Just an idea.  Call Glock?  Any smith should be able to fix it quick, there is not really much to go wrong with them.

Do you lube your Glock a lot?
Lubing the striker channel is a common cause of Glocks misfiring.
Post a pick of what the round looked like, did the striker hit the round?

What do you mean by "sticking"? If you can give a good description of what's happening I can probably tell you what's wrong, but the typical internet forum guessing without accurate details is not usually very helpful.

When I bought my G20, 10mm, I cleaned it really well and lubed everything. First range trip, I had three fail to fires. All had tiny dimples in the primers. Brought the gun home, did a quick search on fail to fire Glocks, and lube in the striker channel was the most prominent cause, and the easiest to fix. I blew out the striker channel of oil, returned to the range and shot 100 rounds with no problems. Did not have a fail to fire up to when I sold it years later.

Sorry, but I can't find a round that had misfired. I stripped the slide and noticed that the striker and channel were sticky to the touch; like syrup texture. I'm sure it's the excess oil you're talking about. I cleaned the oil off, but I didn't hear the clink sound the striker makes when I push the safety plunger in. So, I restripped the slide and cleaned more residue out of the channel. After assembling the slide again I was able to hear the striker clink, as stated, in the owner's manual, it should sound. I will return to the range to test it out.
Thank you all for the helpful feedback.

Nice, hope it works!
