Bastion Gear has introduced a Glock pistol tool which combines a pin punch with a magazine disassembly tool. The punch folds into the shaft of the tool making it a more compact package which would be easier to store. The magazine disassembly portion represents a bottle opener shaped hook with a built-in stud to engage the hole in the floor plate.
Once you hook the tool into the floorplate, you will then need to use the leverage of the handle to slide the floorplate out and disassemble the magazine. That’s a pretty straightforward process which is demonstrated in the video embedded below.

You guys know that mag plates on Glocks are a pain to remove. And all of you have used a punch tool before. We have combined two tools in one. Check out this new product in our stories and on our site 👉BASTIONGEAR.com👈 #bastiongear #bastion #bastionllc #edc#glock #glockporn #glockfanatics
Bastion Gear Glock magazine disassembly and pin punch combination tool is compatible with all generations of the following Glock pistol models: G17, G19, G20, G21, G22, G23, G25, G26, G27, G28, G29, G30, G31, G32, G33, G34, G35, G36, G37, G38 and G39. This tool is made of aluminum and has a black anodized finish. When the pin punch is deployed, the overall length of the tool is 8″. In storage configuration (with the pin punch folded) it is 5.5″ long.
This tool ships in a box that is shown in the video. It is available on the Bastion gear website at an MSRP of $29.99.
If they could also incorporate a cleaning rod (with a bore brush on it) folding to the reverse side of the pin punch, that could be an ultimate field tool for Glock pistol cleaning and maintenance.
