THE GLOCK “SAFE-ACTION” PISTOL
The following is a description of how the GLOCK “Safe-Action” trigger mechanism functions.
CAUTION: It is possible that a loaded round may still remain in the chamber when a loaded or empty magazine is being removed or inserted. Like most firearms, any round in the chamber will discharge by pulling the trigger with the Glock magazine inserted OR removed from the firearm.
Remove the magazine, cock the pistol, and CONFIRM with your eyes and finger that the chamber is empty and that there are no rounds present. The GLOCK pistol is actually considered half-cocked at this point. The firing pin has been slightly tensioned, the trigger is moved to its forward position, and the trigger safety protrudes from the trigger.
When you first pull the trigger back about 1/4 of an inch, the trigger bar slides behind the trigger ramp, the firing pin moves up, and the firing pin is tensioned. The Glock pistol is now on “FIRE / SAFETY OFF”.
When the Glock trigger is pulled back further, the trigger bar releases the connector which releases the firing pin and discharges the loaded ammo.
The recoil produced by the fired round forces the slide backwards.
At about the .012 position, the barrel is released from the slide and moves down over the locking block.
The Glock slide continues to move backward and the spent cartridge case is pulled out of the chamber by the extractor and tossed out towards the right by an ejector.
A ramp in the slide moves the connector and separates it from the trigger bar and lifts it off the trigger spring and toward the path of the firing pin face.
Next, the recoil spring forces the slide forward and the trigger bar slides on to the safety ramp near the firing pin - the firing pin safety returns back to its original position - a slight tension is placed on the firing pin - if present, the next round is stripped from the magazine and placed in the chamber - the barrel is locked into slide and the pistol is ready to fire.
Once the last round has been fired, slide will be held back in the open position by the slide stop level.
