Glock® pistols are famous for their simplicity and ease of maintenance in the field.

One Glock® Punch Tool is all it takes to completely service the sidearm, right? Almost… except for the magazine release.

Until now, armorers or shooters around the world had to resort to long screwdrivers to reach in the pistol frame, and release the magazine release spring. That, in turn, invariably lead to gouged-up magazine wells that won’t allow empty mags to fall free when they should. Damaged magazine releases were also a result.

Now you can keep that magazine well pristine and working like a combat pistol should with our GMRT-01 tool. Its specially formed tip is shaped to release the magazine release spring with maximum bite and leverage. You’ll notice the rounded tip is also highly polished stainless steel, that can’t damage the mag well or mag release…ever.

The ergonomic handle is also stainless steel for long, corrosion-free service. Also works on any pistol with Glock®-style magazine release, such as Smith & Wesson M&P, etc.

The ultimate Glock® tool for gunsmiths, armorers & shooters that have multiple mag release installations in one sitting or for detailed regular maintenance.

Made in Germany.

    TangoDown Mag Release Tool for Glock

    Posted by Bradley Douglass on Jan 17th 2023

    This tool made the job very easy, but it still scratched my frame. I could have saved my money and used a small screwdriver with tape on the end and got the same result.

    TangoDown Mag Release Tool for Glock

    Posted by David Phelps on Mar 3rd 2022

    I was able to change the Glock mag release to the Vickers Extended mag release in about five minutes. I could not believe how easy it was. The hardest part was getting my wife to adjust the flashlight to be able to see in the magwell. This product was worth every penny to me to make the exchange from the Glock mag release to the Vickers mag release.

    So the glock frame being polymer, will get scratched by ANY tool you put in it regardless of design. I would get this tool again but, with curbed expectations. Yes its better than a flathead, coat-hanger, etc. I think it could be better still though. My recommendation is to blend the bevel and the curved surfaces behind the tip of the hook with a red wheel.

    Ignore the price

    Ignore the price plus shipping and just buy it. Works so easy the first time that it's worth every penny even if you use it just a few times in your life. The number of saved curse words is immeasurable.

    Magazine Release Tool for Glock

    Posted by Joe Daniels on Feb 7th 2021

    Product is really a great improvement over using the Glock punch or a screw driver to remove the magazine catch.

    This tool works perfectly to quickly and easily lift the magazine catch/release spring out of the notch without leaving a mark. The Glock factory approved and taught method of digging at the spring with a flathead screwdriver is a thing of the past. I've used flathead screwdriver

    mag release

    Posted by james on Sep 21st 2020

    doesn't disengage a magazine quite as easily as i thought it would but does work as well or better than factory in the sense it is raised ever so slightly enough to allow easier access.

    Magazine Release Tool

    Posted by Bruce Myers on Sep 10th 2019

    Had my doubts about this tool until I tried it. Wish I would have one years ago. I train police academy cadets, and every new class I end up changin out magazine releases based on how many right or left handed shooters I ahve in a given class. This tool makes it so fast and easy its hard to believe no worries about slipping up and doing frame damage either
