I don't like the sound of the "click" when you pry on the plate... sounds like something breaking!

You are compressing the magazine spring when you press down on the insert with the armorer's tool. When the insert slips out from underneath the armorer's tool, the magazine spring's tension is released. The magazine spring uncompresses and strikes the underside of the floor plate. 'CLICK'

This is the technique for full capacity magazines. Any of the 10-rounders produced to meet the restrictions of the klinton gun ban are better handled in a slightly different way. Instead of pushing the tool straight down into the magazine, angle the tip towards the front of the magazine and insert. There is an additional 'shelf' on each side of the left and right insides of the magazine tube. These prevent the magazine insert from going straight down. It must angle downward in the front to be pushed into the tube.

can the 9 rounders be easily converted to 11 rounds mags (now that we're legal to have them)?

No!

The reason 9-round magazines are not 10-round magazines is that 9 is the physical limit. You have to add a "+" base to increase the capacity of 9-round magazines.

as a side note, i, being the ever-intelligent aggie that i am, was not pushing the post on the floorplate down enough... i figured if the post was clearing then it'll slide off... wrong. when i tried to compress the sides, it wouldn't budge, and i felt that i would need a tool (like channel locks) later i realized that i was forcing the sides into the floorplate that i was pushing down only a little, once i depressed it more, the thing slid right off. keep that in mind if you are having trouble, push that thing way down.

Yeah, the video is great. When I bought the 27 a couple weeks ago, I got the grip extensions. Then I heard about the +1's and got those today. I had to have the gunshop put on the original ext's on, but the video really helped and it was very easy. BTW, I used the 3/32 punch on mine. Thanks!

I thought about getting that video too about the 27. I had a bear of a time getting the magazine apart when I put my Pearce extender grip on a few weeks ago. I was buying some ammo at a little mom and pop local gun shop here and I bought another extender from the guy and mentioned how difficult it was to put on. He said he could do it in about 20 seconds with just a punch. I'd like to see that!

TripleThreat,

Scroll up to Randy's video and watch it. Actual removal time is about 3 seconds.

Very useful video, thanks Randy. Bought the Pearce extenders a month ago and could not get the baseplates off. Watched the video and although it did take me a little longer than 3 seconds, I now have my extenders on.

One of those things I didn't want to ask cause many times on GT people get ridiculed for asking a question. Granted, it usually comes from the GNG forum. While this was my first visit to this forum, I may just have to hang out here a little more to learn other tidbits of info.

Thanks Randy and DannyR

Well...

It seems like the technique in the video is probably that easy with a larger frame Glock (because you have more to work with) I couldn't get this to work with a G27 (subcompact). I did however get the boiling water method to work & it worked very well. Just go slow when putting the floor plate or mag extension back on and the tab will go into the hole easily.
No damage or concern whatsoever! Thanks for the tip!

The proper technique to remove the base plate on a Klinton mag is to place the magazine on a post 7 yards away, draw G19, shoot the magazine.

The base plate should come off then.

TW,

In a strange way your right,i personally fell the plastic mags were a mistake from the gitgo.If Gaston would have bit the bullet and made metal mags with a nicely manufactured metal mag lock/release,he wouldn't have had to modify his mags three times,and the mags would have lasted longer under heavy use and punisment.

Ok, my mags finally looked like they needed disassembly to clean them out. I took my armorer's tool and inserted it onto the button and while depressing it, the button slipped, looks like it's in the mag sideways or something. Anyways, all I can engage with the tool at this point is coils of the spring. I get the sinking feeling I screwed something up, as I can't get the thing apart now. Any suggestions?

Normal.

Now, use the end of the tool to pull the plate off (as demo'ed in the video). You are good to go.

edited to add:

Is it just offset so the button doesn't protrude through the hole in the floorplate or has the entire plate underneath the floorplate been pushed out of the way? In other words, can you see the spring coils through the hole?
