...........until you freakin lose them! :D

In all my years of owning Glocks today was a first. I actually dropped the stupid things and man did they get gone. Took me twenty minutes on my hands and knees to find both of them. I was even putting my face flat on my cheek against the floor with a 190 lumen light looking for them at one point doing full room floor sweeps. Stood on a towel and gently shook my clothes etc etc etc.

20 minute nightmare but I found them.

Advice, don't go screwin' around with your striker spring cups over hard wood floors. They tend to bounce like tennis balls.

:D:cool:

LOL. At least you found it. I had my spring that holds pressure to the slide takedown lever. Probably 15 minutes looking as well with a flashlight. Felt like the dad on Honey I Shrunk the Kids.

:D I watched one of our armorers loose one while doing an inspection of someone elses duty pistol. The look on his face was priceless :eek:
Never did find that one.

Did the same exact thing with mine. Lost two of them and spent at least half an hour to find one. Got my gun back together and put everything away only to find the other one sitting right next to my foot.

Glad you found them, I will probably be the next one to do the "search" for missing parts.

^^ Wow $12 shipping. Maybe they are trying to tell you to add more items to your cart to make it worthwhile. Maybe replace all the springs while your at it? I usually make a decent purchase when I shop. It's hard to buy only a few items after spending a few minutes shopping.

Midway sucks on shipping and handling charges. My last order was a spring and two screws for $12 and another $12 for S&H. I tried to cancel the order to purchase additional items, but they stated it was shipped out already (ordered at 8:00am, called at 10:30am, couldn't cancel). They shipped it first class mail and it took 2 weeks. I'll never order from them again. $12 for a small Manila envelope and a postage stamp. I'll get my parts from the local gun shows instead.
They claim super fast shipping, yet I got parts faster and for less S&H from Lone Wolf Distributing.
