Disassembling a Glock magazine is easy. You will need a small screwdriver and a pointed object, like a pen or paper clip.

How to take apart a Glock magazine?

First, remove the screws on the bottom of the magazine. Once the screws are removed, pop the bottom of the magazine off. Be careful – there is a spring inside that will shoot out if you’re not careful.

Next, remove the cover plate. To do this, use your screwdriver to pry it up off of the magazine body. Again, be careful – there is another spring under the cover plate that will fly out if you’re not careful.

Finally, remove the inner parts of the magazine by pulling them out from the top. The follower and spring will come out together, and the base plate will come out separately.

Now that you have all of the parts of the magazine separated, you can clean them and reassemble them in the reverse order. Be sure to put the springs in before you replace the cover plate and bottom plate, or they will be very difficult to put back in.

Here’s a quick video on how to take apart a Glock magazine:

First, remove the magazine floorplate by pushing down it and pulling it straight off.

Then, hold the magazine spine with your thumb and index finger and use your middle finger to push down on the follower. Doing this will release the spring tension and allow you to pull the spring out of the magazine.

Finally, slide the base plate back on and replace the floorplate by pushing it down until it snaps into place.

  • One way is to use a small flathead screwdriver or knife to pry the baseplate off the magazine.
  • Another way is to insert a bullet into the spine of the magazine and then press down on the rounds with your thumb until the baseplate pops off.
  • You can also use a Glock Disassembly Tool to take it apart.

When taking care of your Glock magazines, make sure to clean them regularly and apply some oil or silicone spray to keep them in good condition. You should also check for wear and tear on the parts, and replace any parts that are damaged or worn out.

To take apart a Glock magazine, you need to remove the floorplate. This can be done by pushing down on one side and pulling it off.

Once the floorplate is removed, you can pull out the spring and follower. The spring is compressed, so be careful not to lose any of its parts.

Lastly, you can clean the inside of the magazine by using a small brush or q-tip. Make sure to reassemble everything in reverse order.
