    Ditto. A good commercial penetrating oil soak will be a start. Make sure it won't harm plastic or ABS.The Coke trick might speed things along. I guess at this point it might not make a lot of difference.
    I'd wait to hear from Glock first. All the internals will need to be replaced at the very least. The slide looks to be very corroded.
    Good luck.

    It’s possible they did . The ATF couldn’t test fire it so it was returned to me . Where it was found it was on the backroads from my house to Corpus Cristi Tx . They could of got nervous and dumped cause my camera was in the bag too .

    Finally heard back from them . Wasn’t very helpful. All they told me to do was soak it in oil and tap on the slid to free it up . They they said if that don’t work I could send it in. But no telling what it would cost to even check it out . They would not warranty anything . I don’t have a problem with not warranting it because it’s not a Glock failure.

    Right now I have it soaking in evap-rust . It looks like it working on the rust pretty good . In a few days I will swap it over to a oil soak . Maybe kroil .

    I have a little bit of a problem with it. You got hit below the belt before Christmas time. I think they could afford to fully replace one of them. IMHO.

    Under the circumstances that you “lost” the gun and because it was not due to misuse on your part, I think it would have been great PR for Glock to give you a new gun.
    On top of that you lost a camera too, and that probably wasn’t cheap either. Maybe they will still give you break if you do send it in.
    I’d do that and see what they quote you at least, but you’ll probably have to pay shipping charges.

    Here how is how it looks now. Most all of the rust I was worried about is gone . Still in the oil soaking . Will do that until I have time try to take it apart on my next set of days off .

    Don’t plan on it unless it’s necessary.

    Wowww, can`t wait to see the outcome. I would have never guessed that you would have gotten as much rust off from it as much as you did. There is still hope. I bet the striker channel is poop. Hope you post more pictures as you go along this journey. Hope you get your G29 back too.

    That’s just from soaking . Have not brushed or wipe anything off yet.
