2 Questions

1. Guys how do you remove the base pads on them glocks?

2. Apparently my brother bought a 2nd hand 2nd gen g19 and the mags seems to be not for the g19. does the mags have anything to do with generations? i.e., will a 1st gen mag fit in a 2nd gen glock? the mags that my brother has are shorter and the mag release doesn't fully set in and the other mag won't lock in place. Glock experts, would you kindly enlighten my ignorance on the Glocks. thanks

As to your first question, just press down the hole at the base plate with something narrow enough to go in the hole, while sliding the base plate forward; when it goes forward a bit remove the tool and slide the plate all the way forward.... watch for the sproinggg so hold on to the plate... I'm a klutz in such things and the spring and the plate at the end always goes flying.:supergrin:

Here is a link to a Glock magazine disassembly page with step by step instructions and pictures.

Hope that helps.

As far as the magazine question, all generation G-19 mags will work in the G-19. So will all G-17 and G-18 mags.

Sounds like they are not G 19 mags at all.

The mag thats too short could be a G-26 mag maybe?

Do the mags say Glock on them?

Any chance of you putting up a picture?

Pretty hard to help with the magazine while guessing like this.

To disassemble your magazine, you need to have your punch.
Insert your punch about 1/2 the way into the floor plate of the magazine.

Using the punch as a lever, pry the floor plate off the magazine.

Slide the floor plate off by hand.

Be careful of the spring and insert inside the magazine as they are under pressure.
