    Why the hell doesn't Glock sell replacement shoes for the part that makes contact with the sight itself?? One of them popped off in my shop and I cant get a new one. I'm tempted to make one out of delrin but am curious if anyone has a spare or knows who might before I add another project....

    Since it is a Glock part, call them up and ask them.

    Is it vital to the function fo the tool? Looking at pics, it still should work-- can you just always push in one direction, reverse the slide if needed?

    I use a MGW, it there is no "shoe" or "pad", just metal on sight contact.

    Glock was the ones that told me they dont sell replacement parts for their own tools. I can move the one shoe to the other side but I still feel like an ass because it's a tool I borrowed from a friend....

    There you go... truth comes out.

    Pretend you know nothing, or...

    Order him a new one, keep this one for yourself, or sell it on ebay.
