My question is, how do I remove or clean the particles out of the channel so I can seat the new channel liner properly? Any help would be great, Thanks
    I'd call the people that applied the coating and ask them...

    And then I would never use or recommend them again...

    hi tim414, and thank you for the reply. I really would not want to put their name out there just because they were so apologetic, they sent me new parts, wanted pictures so they could review them and address the issue with the employee that did the work. The particles were overspray from the cerakote. All I did was use a bore brush the proper size with some Flitz, it worked perfectly

    With the firing pin installed, when you hold the slide vertical with the firing pin at the top and shake the slide...Does the firing pin rattle? Also when holding it in the same position and pressing the the firing pin safety plunger, does the firing pin drop through the face of the breech?

    Thanks for the reply, I talked to them quite a few times to solve the problem and were very helpful and apologetic. I did not want to ship the slide back and wait two weeks for it to come back. What, sir, would you have done, (since you are an armorer) if this slide was brought to you with the same problem?

    What I understand that you are saying is that you cleaned the inside of the channel liner with a brush and polish? And that cleaned out all of the debris that was causing the problem? I don't know that that is not a fine solution, but I just don't know. I would expect that replacing the channel liner would be the manufacturer's solution, but since the problem was caused by the finisher company, that should be their obligation.

    With the new channel liner installed in the channel the firing pin does not rattle and the pin drops through the face of the breech, and everything works fine. Thank you for the reply

    No sir, I cleaned the inside of the channel that the channel liner slides into.

    Ok, I didn't get what you meant. That's probably what I would have done. But, I've never removed or replaced a channel liner so it would be a first for me.

    It should but if it's working fine no big deal unless this a CC weapon. If that is the case I would replace the liner, they are not expensive.

    Note that armorers are not gunsmiths. Armorers are limited to maintaining, troubleshooting and repairing stock configuration Glocks. Technically, as an armorer, a gun with an aftermarket coating would fail the inspection and that would be the end of it.

    For many, getting the certification is just added knowledge about how a Glock works. But the cert itself technically ends with aftermarket parts (excluding sights).
