    Neat looking doodad! I know that dirt/grime/etc can sometimes cause a problem with the function of the mag, but I just don't think my mags are carried/used enough for it to matter. Yet....

    Well, a lot of people will get one here and say that you can properly clean it with regular cleaning tools, but I think that is a great invention. I may have to pick up one myself. It would certainly make cleaning the magazines faster.

    Don't forget the silicone spray that dries into a powdery Teflon film. I spritz a tiny bit into my mags every time I clean them.

    Interesting concept. Be sure and report back once you get a chance to try it out.
    Thanks for the link.

    It was brought up recently in another thread, and I have one coming to me, should be here tomorrow.

    I'm thinking it'll be most useful on the 10 round 'Clinton' mags and the newest G26/27/33 mags that are rather difficult to get open...at least the first time.

    It appears to be unlikely to damage the mag tube like pliers and c-clamps can, and may give a bit more leverage on the front of the tube to get it open easier. We'll see!

    I ordered the brush too....looks like it'll make it way to easy to clean mags! :)

    I just started shooting USPSA, Production Division with my G22. Every time I drop a mag on the run, when I go back and collect them, I am always trying to knock the dirt out of them. This is exactly what I have been looking for. Thanks for the tip.

    Sears sells rubber tips for Craftsman Pliers that I put on a Pair of Channelocks opened a little oversize to the size of the magazine. works just fine. Sorry if there were too many "plugs" for those companies.

    Thanks OD, I just ordered the set. Might help with those (range duty only) KCI magazines. Appreciate the head's up.

    Once you get the floorplate off the magazine the first time the best thing to do is remove the locking tabs off the bottom of the magazine. This can be done with a box cutter razor blade. Thereafter, removing the floorplate is as easy as any other magazine.

    It looks like it is a pretty cool item to have for those who have difficulty pulling apart their mags. Personally, I don't really see this as a tool for those who want to clean their mags (cause I don't see anyone's mags getting dirty enough to create a problem), rather a tool for those who want to swap out the floor plates and/or springs.

    No it is not good. You should never spray any fluids, oil, lubricants, or teflon into a glock mag. That will contaminate your ammo. They were designed to work dry. Keep them clean and dry for best results. :cool:

    The mag disassembly tool is pretty cool and I may pick one up one day.

    Interesting. I've never taken apart a mag but that doesn't look too hard.

    Very cool.

    If I ever get serious about cleaning my Glocks :upeyes: I'll certainly consider one of those.
