Glock disassembly block (roll of duct tape). Login/Join 
The cake is a lie!

I use a roll of tape as a block to disassemble my Glocks. Seems to be a common thing to use.

My question is if there is an actual product that basically does the same thing? All I've seen are those hockey pucks with holes and grooves drilled into it, and those plastic frames that seems more complex than it needs to be.
basically I would like a nylon or hard rubber cylinder roughly the size and shape of a near empty roll of duct tape. Such product exists? Or should I make a trip to the hardware store instead?

I just use a glock disassembly tool, or in a pinch, a drift. There's nothing on the Glock that takes tapping or force, or that requires a block.

When a roll of duct tape was mentioned, my first thought was a strip of duct tape, stick side up, to keep parts from rolling away. Then it occurred to me that the original poster meant a block with a hole in the middle.

Removing the pins requires fingertip pressure and no more. If its taking more than that, you're not doing it right. That includes the trigger pin, which slides out easily if you work the slide stop a little as you put pressure on the pin.

A block isn't necessary. It doesn't hurt, but the glock easily comes apart and goes back together with just a glock tool and one's hands. It was designed that way.

The only exception I can think of is drifting and unscrewing the sights, or driving the pin out of the trigger bar to put a new shoe on.

Same here. Never used anything more than a Glock disassembly tool or a punch.

Only tools I have for this task are the backstrap holder thing that has a plastic punch for the frame pins and a Wiha hex driver for the front sight. If the locking block pin doesn’t want to come out, you wiggle the slide lock lever until it comes out easily. That’s not to say you can’t hammer on a Glock, just that it’s completely unnecessary.

I don't know how the rest of you guys work. But my workshop is filled with detent springs and other misc. stuff that I will never find till I don't need them. It is really convenient and easy to push these glock pins (I didn't say hammer) out into a space where they fall neatly rather than trying to manage them coming out. Just my take.
A block or roll of tape works fine. Both are cheap.

Generally, I push the pins far enough that they're still captive and I pull them the rest of the way out by hand.

I've never needed anything more than a Glock tool and a piece of newspaper to strip a Glock..

I have a magnetized block I use for everything. Helps keep track of small parts. Cant recall who makes it.

I have several bench blocks that I've acquired over the years but yeah, a roll of masking or painter's tape works reasonably well in a pinch. Less likely to leave sticky tape residue on a receiver like the edge of some duct tape rolls can (ask me how I know).

I agree with monoblok, I use a roll of painter's tape, a 1.5" wide roll. I cut off a tweaker screw driver and rounded and polished the end to make a pin pusher.

Never bought a 'block' but have used a piece of 2x4 to hammer out pins on new glocks. But generally, all I use, like many above, is just the glock tool. And a big plastic bag when working with springs. It's hard finding those little buggers if they get launched. Now I do small spring work inside a plastic bag.

That is what I use also.

Bought it for the M&P, that it works for the Glock is just a bonus

Brownell's Glock punch and a role of painters tape. If painters tape is not available, duct or masking tape will work just fine.

Glock punch and roll of tape is all I ever used. I liked the roll of tape because it kept the pins in one spot. Smile
