    I think I've done a pretty good job of searching the form, but I can't find any procedures for removing the old style baseplates from Glock magazines (first generation, without the hole). Can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance.

    Find a hard surface that won't be easily marred. Place the back corner of the floorplate against the hard surface, squeeze the sides of the magazines and push hard against the surface. The floorplate will pop forward and you can pull it off. Be sure to retain the spring so it doesn't fly away.
