How To Take Apart The Model 27 Magazine

I picked up a Glock model 27 and I have never seen anything like this!.

On the bottom of the magazine it has the button to take off the floor plate BUT! it has two little tabs that stop the floor plate from sliding off, one little tab on each side of the magazine.

Anyone know how to take these magazines apart??

Thanks for the information but the magazine in the model 27 just does not slide off like that after pushing in the button!.

I am starting to wonder if the magazine was made so that you can not take it apart!.

I've got a G27 also...you have to squeeze the sides of the magazine a little, but they do disassemble.

It gets easier once you've done it a few times. I frequently change between the standard baseplate and the Pearce +1 extensions on each of my magazines, so I've gotten better at it - but the first time took a while.

Those tabs are on all mags, that I know at least, and the floorplate will pop around them. Don't be afraid to put some force on it, it'll go.

Firmly insert a Glock tool all the way through the hole, flipping the plastic insert out of the way.

Using the inserted tool as leverage, pull forward about 1/2 inch while squeexing the base with your other hand.

Remove the tool and carefull slide the base off, being ready to catch the spring.

You don't just push the button as must folks seem to think. You have to insert the tool or punch far enough, firmly enough, to flip the plastic insert over on it's side.

Total operation should take less than 3 seconds.

I have a different problem...I had absolutely no problem taking the floor plates off my G26 10 round magazines...but I cannot get them back on! I have launched springs all over the room, cursed frequently and loudly, and tried all sorts of positions, but...no matter what I try, I can't seem to keep the spring and the little internal plate together and compressed long enough to slide the floor plate back on. I am just about ready to throw these in the trash and buy some new mags!

The videos on dis-assembly are great...I've watched them...but it sure would be helpful to show the re-assembly too. I don't know why I can't do this...I've done any number of magazines for 1911s and other polymer pistols...but I simply can't seem to manage to get these Glock mags back together!

HELP!

Here it is, albeit a bit dated. The new followers snap straight on top of the magazine springs. No need for the 1/4 twist.

I couldn't get the movie to play. I'm sure it's my computer/settings...I'll ask my wife to help when she can (she's knowledgeable about technology and I am a dunce.) In the meantime, thanks for the response.

Edited to add: I'm not sure what you mean by "the new followers snap on the spring." Are you talking about the follower at the top of the magazine spring, that pushes the round upward? That does indeed snap on my spring...it's the little plate that goes on the bottom of the spring, and has the little post on it that in turn locks into the hole in the floor plate...it doesn't seem to attach in any way, and I just can't seem to keep it on top of the spring, and both depressed into the magazine long enough to slide the floor plate on...I've come so close, and then the spring flys out across the room...sigh.

Randy,

Thanks for making the video that I've been trying to make. I have requested it be made into a sticky.

Thanks for all the advice men!

But I took it to a gun shop and the guy put a towel around it and took a pair of channel locks and pressed in the bottom of the magazine and pushed in the button at the same time and off it came!, I had him put on a finger extension and it feels great!!.

That model 27 is the same size as my Kel-Tec P-11 but weighs more but is a very very accurate gun for being such a large caliber in such a small gun.

It says it holds 9 rounds but I had to really fight the 9th one in.

When I do Diamond deals out of state I have been carrying a Colt Officers model 45acp, I think those days of packing the Colt are over with I am going to carry my model 27 I just can not believe how accurate it is.

I used the CorBon 135gr. and think that it will/would make a great man stopper!

But thanks again for all the advice!!

I just had a hell of a time disassembling 9mm and .40 mags to install Pierce Exts. DAMN!

Not so easy with all Glock mags.

Just finished servicing G30 factory mags. Tried squeezing and even with channel locks, and floor plate flipped, I was unable to pass the notch. Using a dime and a small screwdriver blade as wedge spacers, worked consistently.

I'm glad you got them apart but really, you don't need all those extra tools. It's all in the technique. Here's a video with a G30 magazine.

NO! it did not ruin it, theres not even as much as a scratch or dent on it.

Every where I read it said to press in the bottom sides of the magazine to get the floor plate off, I work out every day and use hand grips when I am not busy doing anything else and I tried to press the sides in with my bare hands and it would not budge, it took all he had using the channel locks these little magazines are built like a tank!.

The gun came with two magazines so I am just going to keep the finger extension on one magazine and keep one magazine without it.
