    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!:wavey:

    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.

    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.:upeyes:
    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. [​IMG]

    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.
