    I made a glock tool for $1. The tool is shown above (the quarter is for scale) and fits to push out all the pins in the lower of my 26 just fine.

    I bought a set of 8 small screwdrivers at the 99 cents store. Two of them were just the right diameter to make the tool (plus the other screwdrivers won't go to waste either).

    This tool took me ten minutes to make. I ground the tip of it flat, and slightly chamfered the edges of the tip with the wire brush wheel on the grinder - (grinding a chamfer would remove too much metal i think.)

    The handle was way too small to get a good grip so to make it bigger, i used two pieces of rubber tubing, one inside the other, and trimmed them with a razor blade. I used tire patch glue to hold them on, and this wasn't a good choice, but it will suffice (a few dots of JB weld, or 3m weatherstripping cement, would hold the tubing on much more securely).

    I went to my local fun shop/range and asked it they had any of the Glock tools. One of the guys grabbed one out of a box of stuff and handed it to me. I asked how much it was, he said, "I guess it's free today". Pretty nice.

    studied and noted....Thanks for that.
    And to give back, you can make a 10/22 buffer out of 1/4" water supply line and and a .125" piece of drill stock (think old dull drill).
    cut to length...no, not needed for function but it changes the sound of the 10/22...

    Carry on...

    I "made" a Glock tool a few years ago, too.

    Went to the local hardware store, walked down the plumbing tools isle, picked up and paid 79 cents for a 3/32" (long) Allen wrench and walked out. I spent no other time on it since it was already "made". :)

    I took a 3/32" Punch & dipped it into black tool dip for my Glock Armourers Tool..
    And I also have made the 10/22 buffers from polyurethane fuel line for small engines with a piece of drill rod inside for strenth..
    Now to make a "Zip Gun" from a piece of 3/8" galvinized pipe

    I could have saved $10 if I had thought of something like this.

    I tried an allen wrench for the pins at first but my gun is almost new, the pins were tight it hurt my hand and i was actually grunting and going white knuckle with that little allen wrench!

    Aww, if there ain't blood during the course of a detail strip it ain't a legit strip!

    Glock sanctioned procedure also dictates that a blue cloud of uttered obscenities must hover over head at the end of any sucessful repair session.

    Just gotta jiggle that slide stop lever back and forth very firmly. Makes even the tightest ones pop free. It's all finesse.

    I feel you though. Sometimes the brand new ones can be uncooperative little annoyances.

    Those are very nice copies... but are they Tennifer treated, do they have an specially designed grip and are they stamped Glock? All that for $4 :rofl::rofl::rofl:
