Glock tool / punch, (or the occasional handcuff key) push the little nipple down, small flathead screw driver to pry the base plate foreword.

Make sure the magazine insert or spring doesn't go flying off into the great unknown.

The official Glock method of prying with the Glock tool is iffy, IME. I had come up with an alternate method using a punch and the edge of a table/countertop that worked better, but the Magpopper works even better than that.

I've got the Truglo tool and it works well. But I usually just reach for my punch and do it the old fashioned way.

I've had more than a few Glocks since my first Glock-21 bought in 1994, but several years ago I setteled on a 19, 23 & 26 ... but lately Ive been feeling an itch for another 34

Its not that I've been resisting, I just haven't found one ... but I'm sure its out there!


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I became a new Glock owner today, well, semi-new. I had a 42 for a very short period, just didn't work for me. My interest in the brand got stirred up again with the P80 release. After reading Para's comments on it a couple of times, I decided to pass, but found myself needing to scratch the itch.

Having shot a couple of friends G17s pretty decently, I decided to focus on that and ended up with a G17M. Paid a bit more than a comparable Gen 5 with night sights, but, it fits into what I like, in that, it's just slightly different. Picked it up today and found myself glad on having moved on it.

I have another (sorta) coming in. My 9 year old daughter has been developing a bit of a curiosity lately and I decided to start her off with a Umarex G19X. Figured it would be a good tool to teach her about safety and she can practice without having to go to a range. If she takes to it and proves she's serious we can move onto bigger and better. I think I'm more excited about this than the 17M...

I wanted to like the Glock 17. I did not aim it as naturally as my Sigs. Aimed higher. Sig won again. Bought a 320.

Of course, of course. We understand. It's not on your mind at all. Latent Glockosexuality is nothing to be ashamed of. Here's a couple of passes to the bath house. Feel free to bring a...friend.

Say, you look a bit tense. Let me give you a back rub.

A friend that went with me did buy a Gen 5 26 after I had located them in stock. I guess I’m kinda like a Glock enabler.

So I did a damn thing today. It’s not an OG, but the finish wasn’t really my preference over my love for the crescent serrations and frame texture. It’ll be shortly sent off to CCR for some dark CPII in lieu of the dull, weak finish on this circa Glock re-release. For some reason can’t get BBCcode off of Imgur?? Anyway...

I just picked up a G48. I liked the idea when they first came out but didn’t want a two toned model so I waited for an all black one. Now to locate those elusive 15 round magazines. The thrill is in the hunt.

Congrats on your 'retread'. My fish gill G17 from the original run with the "Teflon" finish has been one of my favorite Glocks.

So, the thing I will say is using the factory method more times than not will deform the hole in the base pad. Some time you have to apply wily it’s a bit of pressure to get a new base pad to unseat. Depending on the tool used I have rounded out the holes before.

Stopped in a couple pawn shops on the way home looking for the elusive G34, none to be found but several gen3 17, 19 & 26
But I did run across a G44(22LR) ... first one I’ve seen ... it looked like a Glock!

AnyOne with first hand experience? Impressions?

I left it there but tonight I kinda wished I’d brought it home ...
Anyway, TIA!

I brought home my first Glock, a Gen5 19, today. Once again, Para was right.

I bought a standard G19 a couple years ago to get comfortable with it because it was going to be a duty weapon that I had to carry. I like my Glock ok but I actually like my P238 desert better than the Glock!

Own a few myself. They just work.

G19 Gen3 RTF2
G26 Gen3
G29 Gen 4 w/KKM 4.5 bbl (woods gun)

For a very long time I had no interest in Glock, but that changed when a buddy lent me one of his G19s for a range session. I shot it so well I asked him to sell it to me, which he did.

A few weeks ago I posted here on how I'd set up a conversion to 9mm of my G23 (.40S&W), to make my pistol a bit easier to shoot for family members (if they needed to borrow it) and so that it would be easier to "feed" in these times of ammunition availability issues. I own a B&T GHM9 Compact SBR and recently purchased an APC/GHM Pro "Glock" lower that allows me to use the OEM Glock 33 round 9mm magazines (and any other G26, G19, or G17 mags as well), which I actually find to be more sturdy than the OEM B&T magazines that are compatible with the original lower receiver. I haven't had the opportunity to shoot it yet, but hopefully that will occur soon and it will prove as reliable as my other Glock systems. The 33 round magazines I purchased for this gun are OD colored, just like the G19 and G17 magazines I bought for my converted pistol.
