    Ok, feel like an idiot. What is the easiest way to pull the floorplate off a Glock 17 mag? Is there a trick to it? It looks like there is a just a little button to push and then is should slide off, is that the case? When I push it in, I cant get it to slide off.

    Any help appreciated.

    Take a small screwdriver, punch or armors tool. Go in at an angle. You want to get the tip past the inner plate and near the front strap. Then use the tool like a lever and pry forward.

    Thanks. That helped. Just needed the reinforcement that there was not other thing holding them on and just needed to use a bit more "encouragement."

    I had a hell of a time the first time I tried to pop them off too. :rofl:

    I don't even go as gentle as yar... I just push the armors tool in until it bottoms out and that flips the inner plate out of the way entirely.

    I stick a punch or anything that fits in the hole and then press the back corner of the plate on a table. Mine never seem to pop off with the yar method. I'm probably just too much of a pussy and don't tweak it enough.
