Tools used in the Glock Videos

Glocks are a very simple pistol and do not require a lot of tools to work on them. However, there are several tools we used in the Glock videos and I figured that I would share what was used for each step in this post. There are affiliate links in this posting to get you to the product that I own or a similar one since some of mine are older and have been retired. Not all links in this article are affiliate links. 

When purchasing tools I try to buy them from Brownells since they have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. I have roll pin punches that have been replaced with no hassle because I broke one. Yes, I do have a couple of Harbor Freight tools that I used in this video. They serve their purpose.
