    Removing Tension Screws on Mitch Rosen EXP-ARG, Glock 26

    I recently purchased a used Mitch Rosen EXP-ARG, Glock 26 on ebay for $41, bidding when up at the end.

    Prior to my bidding on this holster, I contacted Mitch about ordering a separate belt loop and they told me it would be about $20 and $3 to ship. Great, I will try and win the holster.

    Well, I recieved the holster, but I am having the most trouble trying to remove the belt loop. The screw are really locked in, when I move the screw, the rivet moves also.

    So I contacted Mitch again, they suggested, that if I can not remove the belt loop, (no suggestion on how to provided), I could send the holster and they would do it, but they would have to charge me $12 for return shipping. So I will need to pay an extra $9, if I can not get the belt loop off.

    Any suggestions?

    Using a pair of pliers or a clamp to hold the rivet while unscrewing may do it, but of course you're like to scratch/dent/etc the rivet, but Rosen should be able to toss in a couple new rivets for you when they send you the new belt loop.
    Here at the rock, we have just 3 simple rules...

    Glock 27 for every day carry (LCP for deep conceal when necessary)... Glock 23 for the home.

    I was just about to post, yes, I used a very small set of needle nose pliers to get underneath the rivet to hold it in place and un-screw the screw, save me $9. I did end up scratching the rivets, but does not need to be pretty, after all, it is a concealment holster.
    The holster came with a 1.5 loop, unfortunately, I have been using a 1.25 belt for over 16 years.

    Still a great deal, $41 for holster, ($90 New from Mitch Rosen, plus shipping). Belt Loop, $23, Total Cost: $64.
