A lot of those parts look very similar to the P99. (Can't imagine why, with the engineer of the P99 formally working for Glock
) So I would bet a person could probably do the same or similar.

Nope. I printed out the directions when I got my Glock in December, but I haven't gotten around to trying it yet. I want to do that before I screw around with my Walther!!

I might give it a try next month (I'll keep you posted), however two questions :

- why the detail stripping (removing locking block etc)? Although I did remove my locking block of my P99 (in order to replace it with a new one) I wouldn't recommend it on a regular basis.
- isn't it better to use fine stones instead of polishing compound to polish the parts involved ?

Again, not having done it, I can only report what the Glockers say...

The polishing compound is more than sufficient to get the job done. The purpose is just to smooth out the contact points. If you're very comfortable with a stone, you could do that -- but you always risk removing more of the surface material than you really want to. I think from a "control" standpoint, polishing compound is a safer bet.

The general guide for the job is when you get a mirror-like surface, which reportedly isn't hard to achieve. As far as disassembly, yes - taking the whole thing apart is not something to be done on a regular basis. But you should only have to do this job once...
