    Can anyone help me pick out the best tools to breakdown a glock37 and tools to reassemble my glock. I see The Lone Wolf Ultimate Armorer's tool will that work with any Glock model?

    go to your local tool store and buy a 3/32" punch. that's all the armorer's tool is and the local one will cost a lot less.

    Just curious, but how far are you taking your 37 down? Only asking because I have never used any tools...just my bare hands.

    the only reason you would need a 3/32" punch would be to do a detail strip and clean. you can remove every single part from a glock with that 1 punch.

    If you found a way to remove your magazine catch with just a punch, please share your secret. I have poured sweat, blood, and tears trying to get that pin out of the magazine catch with four different kind of tools.

    My kit:
    Glock tool (3/32" punch will do)
    small flat blade screw driver (to take out the mag release spring)
    small long blade needle nose pliers.

    This will allow complete take down. I use the flat blade screw driver to pry the mag bases off from the side.

    Why would you do that? They slide right off once you depress the little button in the baseplate.

    All Glock mags I've ever owned have a little stud on each side of the mag body that catch a slot in the mag base.
