    I know I am posting this at the risk of some chuckles at my expense. Bought a "like new" used Glock 36. As you would expect, the gun works perfectly. I had wanted to remove the frame plug to use a different one. I was reluctant to mess around with it too much for fear of damaging the frame. Took it to a Glock armorer and he absolutely could not get it out. I know it is NOT a big deal, I just wonder if anyone else had run into this.

    It is a aftermarket part since Glock does not have these useless plugs.
    So to better tell you what it is and how to get it out do you have a picture of it?
    Also I would ask the previous owner if he glued this in.
    In this case it can't be guaranteed that the frame does not get damaged.

    I'm sure it's glued in the 36 does not have the hole in the back correct? My G27 does not. But you can take the gun apart and take the guts out and put a punch down the backside and try to knock it out

    You can strip the frame as well and heat the frame up in the stove and that might weaken the glue.

    That's what I had to do to keep mine in my G26. First time I had it in at the range it came out. Ordered another one and super-glued it in. I know not many folks care for them and they're unneccesary, but I just like the finished look when the space is filled in.

    Thanks for all the replies. I finally caught up with the previous owner and found out that he did (as above) use super glue. And yes, I do plan to leave it alone. It just never occured to me that it might be glued. The glock armorer did try the strip and punch from inside with no luck. Live and learn.

    If you ask the previous owner what brand of glue it is, you could call the manufacturer if there is some way to loosen up the glue.
