    I watched a Glock employee disassemble a Glock 17 on a range using only a Glock Disassembly Tool. The Glock design is quite ingenious.

    I agree with this statement. I remember being duly impressed with the design and Gaston’s innovation (or at least the foresight to hire brilliant firearms designers/engineers).
    The Glock magazine was initially not drop free, if you remember. As a military pistol, they did not want magazines inadvertently or accidentally falling out during use. The metal inserts were added later, after a winning campaign directed at the American law enforcement market.
    I sometimes wonder why I don’t still own a Glock. My move to HK has been great, and I am very happy with them. I do think they are the better pistol.
    That said, if you handed me a Glock, I wouldn’t feel like I would be losing much of anything. It would be like old-home-week, as the saying goes.

    Yep. Using that one Glock tool, you can completely disassemble the slide and frame in like 3 minutes. Compared to my USP which I've owned for about 20 years and have never once attempted taking apart. LOL

    I changed my p30l from v1 to 4.1. That was more work than I cared for. HK's seem to be more intricate.

    Are there people not aware of this?...

    you can use a ballpoint pen or other mundane objects...the "tool" is just a punch.
