    I have finally decided to learn how to take my Glock's apart. Can anyone recommend a good takedown tool? I see lots of them out there, and it doesn't look like there's much difference. So any opinions?

    I use an "L"-shaped allen wrench that's just smaller than the rear (trigger housing pin) hole. You don't need a special tool for disassembling a Glock. Any piece of stiff wire, etc., that's smaller than the smallest pin hole will work. You might need a small, flat-bladed screwdriver if you want to go so far as removing the mag release and slide lock.

    A 3/32" punch from Home Depot for $3.99.

    ;l An Allen wrench?????

    Please do yourself a favor and get a proper "Glock Armorer's Kit"!!

    I can put one together for you for about twenty bucks/shipped.





    Boy, I'm feeling feisty this morning!

    Yeah, but apparently not cogent! ;) Anybody who'd spend $20 for a tool(s) for disassembling a Glock needs about 2 gal. of Solomon Juice, administered via bovine enema! ;)

    any 3/32 punch and a small flat blade screwdriver. A soft faced hammer and needle nose pliers come in handy at times but are not required.

    I guess the hammer makes sense. Are you using a brass hammer, or something else. (I don't own one, so any excuse to buy new tools....)

    That's a GI 1911 take down tool..... .50 or a $1 at a gun show near you. I carry it in my pants pocket most all the time.

    Harkey! I can guarantee you that nobody who ever met me would likely describe me as an "old codger". :)

    I'm sorry to inform you that yesterday I removed and replaced the magazine catch and slide stop lever on my Glock 35, WITHOUT using any specific or official tools.

    I also did this without buying any books or videos. I just did it with the advice and wisdom gained through the members of this forum.

    So now I'm a genious. An uncertified Glock armorer. Or at least as smart as a retarded monkey.

    That's great. Will they go back into another Glock and function as intended? I certainly hope so.

    Of course they will. All six pieces are in the mail as we speak.

    Thankee, thankee. A triple bonus. Gives me something to do in my spare time.

    Tie wire, duct tape, 2 part epoxy, and super glue; that make them into 2 pieces?
