    just picked myself up a Glock 23 as an early birthday present and figured I would share some pictures. i have been a long time lurker of GT (& youtube: hickok!) trying to make an informed decision (including range time with the 23 and 19 early on). after putting a couple hundred down range so far i'm very happy with my purchase.

    added AmeriGlo night sights, Glockmeister plug, and a smooth trigger.

    dialed in the sights with the MGW sight tool and an old depth gauge.

    had a friend of mine make a keychain Glock tool with a 3/32" stainless steel dowel pin inserted into a 6061 aluminum handle. love how easy it is to tear down

    thanks! he may end up making a small batch if anyone is interested. this was the first one he made and i've been trying it out to great success. the pin protrudes 30mm from the base

    The key chain tool is neat. I'd definitely be interested in one.

    Congrats! Great photos and I like the idea of that tool! The only thing that's kept me from turning a Glock Tool into a keychain is the fact that the punch is regular steel and not stainless.

    Thanks again, it would seem there will be enough interest for a small batch.

    Ill definitely keep everyone updated. I think it's pretty neat to have handy just in case, and it worked well when I used it to replace the trigger.

    Just to note, the date collected on my 23 was 1/05/11, and I'm happy to report I have no issues thus far with ejection or otherwise.

    The websites store doesn't have them listed! Tell your friend that he needs to stop all that other nonsense :)tongueout:) and put those tools on his webpage!
