Glock Mag Disassemble ?

What is the best way to clean a Glock mag? I cant get the floor plate to slide out to remove the spring assemble.
My magazines hit the dirt during my combat matches.
Thank in advance everyone!

Try squeezing the sides while pressing/pulling the nipple. They can be a pain sometimes.

That's what it looks like needs to be done to clear those notches. will the mag flex that much with out damaging?
How far do I need to push the catch pin? I could'nt do it with my hands. Thanks.

Glock magazines

I have used a C clamp in the past to squeeze the sides of the magazine body. I also used scrap pieces of leather for padding.

This is one of the things Glock should have improved upon by now.
Almost every floor plate on magazines from a quality gun are a cinch to remove by depressing the spring loaded button on the bottom.

Use a punch to push in the button and press a rear corner of the floor plate on a hard surface. Comes right off.

Squeezing the sides has never really worked for me. I just insert my "Glock tool" or a thin straight blade screw driver into the opening for the locking latch and pry the floor plate forward. Then I just pull it off. It's pretty easy.

I would advise from squeezing the mag tube. This happened to a mag that have been squeezed with a C-clamp. General Glocking

The plastic flashing had come undone from the metal tube and caused the spring to bind.

Of course, Im sure that the c clamp method works without problems 95% of the time but I would never do it.
