I just removed the slide from my Glock 27 and wanted to see the trigger mechanism motion, so I pushed the trigger forward a couple of times and pulled.

Then I read in the manual that "The following actions are not permitted on the weapon, since they could lead to damage:
--...with the slide removed, the trigger shall not be manually brought into the foremost position and actuated. The trigger shall only be brought into the foremost position by pushing back the slide."

:(

So, do I have to worry about the safeties not working in the future, or about it not firing when I need it? Or am I just being paranoid about ruining my brand new gun??!

You're fine.

I've done this a few time. And last weekend put 200 rounds through it.

Nothing to worry about. Unless you forced it in a way that might actually damage something. But, I've done it before and I know it didn't hurt mine.

Edited to add:

The only two things that would be rubbing against each other are the trigger bar and the connector. So, unless your actions resulted in any disfiguring of the connector, you're good to go.
Whew! Thank you!

Thanks, that would be great. What's the difference between the 92 and 02 versions?

Okay, I have one more stupid/paranoid question:

The guy who sold me the G27 tried to show me how to take it apart, but he had no idea how to do it. What he did was put the (empty) clip in, pulled the slide all the way back, pushed the side buttons down and then pressed the slide release button. Obviously it didn't work, so he did it another several times. The last time, he just pulled the trigger after releasing the slide, and it fell off.

My paranoid question is: could this have screwed up my gun? Do I have anything to worry about (e.g., the safeties might not work)?
