Part 1 of 3:
In this 3-part series, armorer and firearms instructor Mike Wilson demonstrates how to field strip, clean, lubricate, and function check a Glock 22 (.40 cal) hand gun.
Part 1 covers safety, field stripping, cleaner, cleaning the magazine, and cleaning the barrel.

For a backyardplinkingshooter like you this is no problem! In a real firefight your gonna die, if your gun not works properly!
Kevin is a stupid guy! Whrn you want to shoot a bad guy and your pistol says "click" and not "bang" youre in seriously trouble!
That is the most ridiculous comment I've seen all day. That's right folks, cleaning your gun might get you killed. Watch out!
As shown in the video, once the cleaner is sprayed on the slide or the frame, they are laid in a manner so as to allow gravity to pull the liquid away from the mechanisms while soaking. And as shown in the video, we used the Glock supplied plastic brush to clean the barrel and a plastic bristle tooth brush to scrub the mechanisms. So, I am a little confused by your cratique.
I don't know what "oilspray" is. If you are infering that there is oil in the spray cleaner used in this video, then you are mistaken. MC-25 by mil-com is a firearm cleaner/degreaser and has no oil in it. As for not using burushes to clean a gun ... really?
When you use oilspray, you will flush all the dirt in your trigger system! When you use metal brushes, a wire can stick in your system.This can be lethal for you! A carry gun that is not shooting when needed, is a widdowmaker.
Never use oilspray and brushes to clean your gun!
I personally have not used Ballistol. However, I must point out that I (ThatsOneWay) was only the camera man and editor of this video. I am not the star of the show here. Mike Wilson was but he has since moved away and I no longer see him. Sorry.
I am curious if you have ever tried Ballistol?
You say you were taught to "never store a dirty firearm". I pretty much agree. A properly cleaned and properly lubed machine will always work better and last longer. I clean mine after every session at the range. As for keeping a hand gun loaded, I don't normally keep a round in the chamber. Many folks do. But for the video, we felt it was important to demonstrate clearing the weapon of the chambered round. Thanks for watching.
I just got a glock, put 50 rounds through it at the range and it was super dirty, and i know people you dont need to clean a glock very often but i was taught never store a dirty firearm. I was kind of suprised to see kept a loaded glock, i dont but to each their own i suppose. In any manner your 3 part guide helped me understand the glock better, so i thank you.
Great stuff!! Just harder to get... IMHO try not to spray by the striker (what he calls the firing pin) the last thing you want is any oily stuff to attract dirt to that area. I use a dry brush it that area. Other then that EXCELLENT video. But yes, love Ballistol.
I stand corrected ... I'll fix that.
*firearms (one word) -- "fire arms" implies that your arms are aflame. I would be terrified to accept a hug from someone with fire arms.
What do you think of ballistol?
It's been 3 years since I have taken my Glock out to the range. I did a field strip and cleaned it but when I repeatedly practiced on doing so, the recoil spring would already be out. What am I doing wrong?
your right my bad
He definitely said OIL the barrel..not BOIL.
Good question ... It wasn't very clear but the point that was meant to be made was that the trigger needed to be pulled (firing pin released) before the gun would be considered to be completely "safe".
Great and helpful video, thanks.
Could you do a video on how to properly boil your barrel like you mentioned in part one of your glock cleaning videos?
i have one with a self lubracted slide how would you clean that
Great series and well worth the time to watch all the videos. Thank you!
