Modified all the pin holes so the factory pins can be used and wont fall all the way through.

You can use the Glock pins I sell

Glock Maintenance Pins

These are great if you need to test and disassemble your Glock frame multiple time in one sitting. Such as adjusting your trigger shoe, trigger housing, or adjusting your connector.

They can be used to dry fire your Glock, to check to see if more changes are required. If there are, you can use the handle to easily remove the pins and make your adjustments.

DO NOT use for live fire!

When you are done, you can push them out with the factory pins or pull them out and install your factory pins and head to the range.

Pistol Deep Cleaning!

This is what I do for deep cleaning my pistols. I don’t want to get into the endless debate over how and when you should clean, that’s up to you. I am only showing what I do.

This is a shot of my setup before initial take down.

I use my Harbor Freight ultra sonic cleaner with a 30:1 ratio of distilled water:Simple Green set on heat for 16 minutes. 8 minutes flip / adjust parts another 8 minutes. Small parts go into a jar or solution filled zip lock bag.

Then I drop the parts in my Bald Eagle ultra sonic cleaner with a 20:1 ratio of Distilled water:Ballistol set on 122 degrees for 20 minutes. 10 minutes flip / adjust parts another 10 minutes. I put the small parts in a jar with the same solution.

Glock Slide Vises!

Wish you had a 3rd hand to hold your Glock slide while you are working on it? Trying to adjust your sights or add an optic? This tool is for you. There are 3 models one for each slide type/size.

The images here might show different slide sizes, the tool functions the same for all of them.

After you separate your slide from the frame, you slide the block in from the back of the slide. It will be a snug fit, you might have to pinch the sides to get it to slide in.

You do not need to remove any parts from your slide to get it to work. In most cases you are going to want to keep the block to the back of the slide, where most of your work is going to be done.

The Glock slide tool is made from non-marring plastic that is softer than the slide. Over time is will wear and become loose, to correct that, I added a tightening screw. As you thread it in it will spread holding the slide tighter.

With the barrel and recoil spring removed the Glock slide block can be used at any position on the slide.

Glock 44 15 Round Magazine Upgrade

I want to give my Glock 44 as many rounds as my Glock 19. To do so I made some changes to the alex alex Glock 44 15 round magazine upgrade found in several places on the internet. I started with foxalex extension found on HERE on thingiverse.  I added a slot for the magazine spring and side catches to help it hold better. My remix can be found HERE

I used THIS follower. Make sure it is clean with no sharp edges and overhangs.

I attached it to a Walther PPQ 22 15+1 Replacement Magazine Spring. I did not want stretch my factory spring as suggested in some of the online articles. I like to keep all my factory parts as original as I can.

Appendix Carry Wedge – Harry’s Holster

I want to start appendix carrying my Glock 48. At the time I am writing this my current go to holster manufacture, Alien Gear, does not make an appendix holster for the Glock 48 MOS so I went with Harry’s Holsters, Singleton line. I also purchased the Dark Wing Right Hand and the Comfort Wedge Small, as both had been recommended while doing my research. I am VERY happy with the Holster and Wing, The comfort wedge….not so much. The reviews on the site are spot on with my findings.

Foam to soft, flattened out, does push weapon closer to body somewhat but would have hoped it had been more dense as in previous product photos, so disappointed in the sponge.

Here is what it looks like out of the packing:

Holster Wedge Original Top and Side

Holster Wedge Original Side

I was not paying attention when I ordered and thought it would be a denser material shown in older reviews. This is how I fixed it for me.

I had a Harbor Freight Anti-Fatigue Foam Mat laying around. I cut a few pieces to the same length and width as the comfort wedge.

Then Gorilla glue and a clamp:

Holster Wedge Glue and Clamp

I made 2 versions, one with two pieces and one with three.

In the center is Harry’s Holsters Comfort Wedge for reference:

Holster Wedge Compair

Stuck on the hook side of hook and loop (Velcro) on one side:

Holster Wedge Adding Hook and Loop

Not very pretty but functional. No one but me will see anyway.

Holster Wedge on Holster 02 Holster Wedge on Holster 01

For me the double stack is working out great!

If it continues to work out I might clean it up a bit and cut a curve at the bottom to help it slide in place better and clean up the sides. I will post if I figure out the best way to do it.

A set of 4 mats from Harbor Freight is $9.99, I used ~2 inch top slice of 1 mat. I had the Velcro and glue on hand.

Hope this helps someone out!
