So this is going to be a bit of a strange question but I couldn't find the information anywhere else so I am looking here. I am going to be involved in some film making and one of my rolls is going to be supplying some props (glocks) for the film. I would very much like to render the guns inoperable prior to bringing them on set. Can anyone think of a good way of doing this?

Remove the striker? Or if you need the gun fully functioning (but not firing) buy an aftermarket striker and file off the point so it will not hit a primer.

Not the safest thing in the world, I would just recommend actual prop guns or airsoft.

This or airsoft.  

But if using your own guns then remove the striker.

Yeah, using the real ones makes me very uncomforatable. Likely going to go this directiong.

As it should. Please,  just get a prop gun.

Prop gun, plug the barrel, remove striker, etc etc.

I used a few of mine for the same reason....What I did....Made SURE no ammo was available, & then removed the follower & spring from the mag.  I also made SURE I was in possession of the guns at ALL times when not used as a prop & inspected to be empty prior to handing it over to the person that needed it.

Just stick one of those solid plastic training barrels in it.

Using real guns is a bad idea.

I saw a thread on here just recently where a guy got arrested for having disabled "real" guns on set for a video because he didn't have the proper permits.  IMO, going the prop gun route is definitely the way to go.

think about Brandon Lee, be very careful and remember that there is zero room for oversights or errors. I too, would recommend airsoft.

I agree.  prop gun, airsoft, blue/red gun and paint it black.  Not sure I would use the real deal.  Safety   You never know!!!!!!!!!!

Not to sound like a jerk, but if you're on here asking question like this then you really should not be the one in charge of providing firearms for a movie.  There are companies that do this full time for a living.  They permanently modify the firearms to be inoperable and I'm sure have a large amount of insurance as well.

Came here to post this.

Belt and suspenders would be training barrel and pull the striker.

Get a welder to tack weld a "plug" in the barrel from the chamber.  You'll never use the barrel again, but it sure won't allow a bullet in the chamber.

Blade tech barrel and Rit dye.

Needlessly expensive compared to a plastic training barrel.
