disasemble and clean magazine for Buckmark



Log in to see fewer ads
Before I actually try to to it I would like some advice from someone who has done it - I want to take apart and clean my magazines for my Buckmark.
1st, I want to know the method or removing the base plate ( if that is the method of disassembling the mag or should the plate stay on) ?. Then , the best method of cleaning ?. That is to say are gun cleaning solutions used or not . Also should the spring itself be cleaned or just the side walls of the mag.? Next should the parts be lubricated ? That is, should I lube the spring or just the walls and what about the follower ?. Then what lubrication is best. gun oil grease ,10-40 oil or a combination or what ? Finally,is there a preferred method or reassembling and securing the parts? That is,if I removed the base plate should it be pinched to hold tight or banged back into the frame or just just slid back or what ?
Thanks

Here's my photo montage showing how I get them apart:



And I agree that maybe some silicone spray (dry lube) type of stuff might be about the only lube you want to leave in the mag when you're done. I've had to use CLP or other stuff to get the nasty waxy goo out of some of mine before, but I try to clean all of that out of the mag when I'm done.

More simplification figured out. Take a paint stirrer or piece of thin wood and chisel off the end to align with the follower. Hold mag with one hand and push rod into stomach leaving other hand free to remove button. Here it is demonstrated on a Challenger magazine.
