    It’s part of the trigger housing ejector! It’s supposed to be like that

    That is the ejector, after the extractor pulls the casing out of the chamber the ejector throws the casing out of the ejection port. Also, if it looks bent that is completely normal. The ejector needs to be in a specific shape in order for it to work reliably. I hope you enjoy shooting your Glock!

    Dropping a round into the chamber will cause the extractor to snap over the rim of the casing, breaking the corner of the extractor off. If you look at your barrel you will see both of your locking lugs and right in front of them is where the metal end of your recoil spring sits. There are two ridges, one flat and one curved. Make sure the recoil spring is sitting in the curved ridge. As soon as you disassemble your Glock the recoil spring will pop up and sit in the flat ridge. Before you put your gun back together, push down on the recoil spring once it is inserted into the slide and it will slide into the curved ridge. This will prevent the bottom end of your recoil spring from breaking under recoil. Also, you don’t need to lubricate your gun too much. One drop on the connector, 2 drops on the barrel and locking lugs, and 2 drops in the slide rails is enough. Too much lubrication will cause the lubricant to seep into the striker channel which will prevent the striker from settling your round off. The manual you receive with your gun isn’t complete but it is a good reference if you have any issues. If you run into a serious issue, take your gun to a Glock Certified Armorer. If you take care of your Glock it will take care of you!

    It’s a glock, it doesn’t matter just shoot it. Unless it’s a g44. You shouldn’t shoot that in any case.

    Don’t straighten any seemingly cockeyed parts. As stated above just cycle rounds through it as much as you can.
