Tikka T1X .22 magazine disassembly?



Log in to see fewer ads
My T1X has a preference for one of the greasier of the German target ammos. Is there a prescribed method to take apart the magazine? I really like this rifle, but the lube on the bullets from S+K really kind of leave a mess all thru the magazine and I would like to be able to clean it. Thanks and have a great day......................

Best I can come up with is this post in another thread. See the first paragraph

https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...7&postcount=15

I was going to take one of mine apart and do a write up. After reading that ↑ post I think I'll wait until I really need to. Instead I pushed the follower all the way to the bottom with a 3/16" punch and I swabbed the sides with a Q-tip

The base plate snaps off and back on quite easily. the only thing I would add is that only removal portion of the first paragraph is applicable - Do not cut off the tab.

The only reason for saying this is that I sent the instructions to an acquaintance and he cut off the tab, then he was ticked off because the factory base plate did not fit properly after cutting the tab. On the other hand he is the type of person who can screw up boiling water.

You could clamp the magazine lightly in a drill press vise and chuck the punch up in the drill with it turned off and use the press to push the punch down then lock it in place then use a polymer safe cleaning spray or maybe some Hornady One Shot on the Q-tip to clean it out.

I have a good 15,000 rounds through my 5 magazines. So 3000 each. I've never even thought about cleaning them. If I ever get to that point, I have 5 new ones on standby. Five mags because I like to load a box of ammo at once.

I have a machinist vise but no drill press. It was easy enough to just push the follower down with a flat-ended punch and swab it out. I've never thought about cleaning any of my 4 mags yet. I only cleaned the one to try to help the OP. The swab I used wasn't even very dirty. So I imagine it'll take a long time before I actually have the need to clean them

Probably a good plan 🙂

I swear one of the YouTube videos I watched of the T1x showed someone taking apart the magazine but now I can't find it.

I've cleaned magazines by spraying automotive carburettor cleaner in there. Doesn't hurt the magazine at all and gets out a lot of grease, oil and powder residues. No need to be invasive.
