I personally have one the the mag dissemble tool and brush. I can pop off the base plate in like 2 seconds cause the tool presses in on the mag enough to make sliding the plate off easier. Instead of you having to put all your weight on it to pop it off.

Let me say that in my experience, this is the most difficult part of working on a Glock! I've seen all the videos and heard all the tips on how to make this easier. Well, it's still a PITA for me to do! I even bought the GTUL, but that may have made it a little easier, but not by much! I've resorted to just use a vice. I just make sure the mag is protected. JME.

This video is exactly right...although, I'll admit it is a PITA. I have a set of 3 punches from Home Depot that I use for all my guns, and they worked fine for me getting the floor plates off.

I use a punch set, have even used a pen before. I push in on the bottom of the mag plate there is a circle hole that receives a circle tab. Use your punch push up and at an angle towards the front of the magazine, and the plate should slide forward. My advise find a YouTube video, that goes step by step. Thats how I learned, and I have removed mag plates more times then I can count. One last tip when you get it to release, keep pressure on it and slowly let spring up, or it will shoot out. Good Luck.

A small screw driver and a lot of swearing LOL. I got the Magpul ranger plates for my G34 mags, a ***** to get the floor plates off, then easy to get the new ones on.
