How many times can you remove and put back in the frame pins before they start to fit loos, or will they ?

It depends on how you remove them. The Glock tool, a straight punch, is the best way. Using a tapered punch will enlarge the holes, making for a loose fit.

A detail strip once a year is more than enough.

Using the Glock Tool, push the pins out left to right and push them back in right to left. Use the corner of the Glock Tool handle to seat your pins to the correct depth. You should be able to do this a bunch of times without enlarging the holes.

Unless you need to replace a part, there's no need to detail disassemble your Glock pistol.

Even the dirtiest pistol can be cleaned with an aerosol spray cleaner and then blown out with compressed air.

What i am doing is, tomorrow when it comes in i am replacing the trigger housing and ejector then in a few weeks thinking about a 3.5 bar and an oversized slide release when i get the money so in the next few weeks i am thinking about taking it apart several times for the upgrades. To take it apart i will be using a flat punch i made from a slightly smaller nail

You can remove them as many times as you want, if you do it carefully.

What he said. plus the pins are not expensive to replace if there should be a mishap.

I have a Gen4 subcompact I have literally taken apart 100 times to test parts. Pins are still tight. I use it for testing because it is ultra consistent and I can easily tell and measure any changes different parts and combinations make.

The two pins above the trigger are steel. The one to the rear is plastic.

Define "left".

Left looking at the front, or looking from the back?

The pins in the G19 that I worked with in the armorers school a couple years ago seemed tight enough to hold the gun together. I have to guess that gun had the pins taken out put back a few hundred times. I would guess that as long as they removed and installed properly the pins would never wear out in a Glock that was taken down as appropriate.
