Some come out easy and some are a tighter fit. If you need to get it out you can try removing the striker, then from the firing pin hole, use a paper clip or similar object to push it out the back of the slide.

I guess I had one of the really tight ones
Ended up using a long 5/16-18 tap took considerable
Force to pull it out. Ordered several from SpeedShooterSpecialities

from what I've read don't be afraid to sand them down with 1000 grit sandpaper , they may ridges on them from injection molding which can catch on your striker

You also should press in the Striker block before you pull that bolt past it. Takes 3 hands but is doable. My .45 replacement worked fine. And Smith armorers have come up with a tool to pull that sleeve but won't share it with us plebes. Guess they want you to send the slide in to them.

You can order the Glock tool from Brownells that also works in the M&P, or you can easily fabricate one.

This is kind of a primitive way of doing this, but its an idea nonetheless.

Yep, "brownell`s" sells it, but they dont have it... thats the reason i put a link in here so if someone wanted to order it and NOT WAIT for a backorder of who knows when they`ll ever see it, they could get one from a place that DOES have them. Sorry, i`ll be 100% politically next time.

And while being politically correct, MIDWAY USA discontinued them.
And ROCKYOURGLOCK has them IN-STOCK, ready to ship.
Brownell`s does not.

Why are you trying to remove the old one? Are you getting light primer strikes?

Cheap alternative; screw a 5/16th's carriage bolt into the channel a little ways by hand, and pull the bolt and liner out by hand.

Striker liner tool

Got the tool for Glocks which have the same striker and liner. Works great.
