Springfield 1922 magazine question?



Log in to see fewer ads
Can anyone offer any advice...do/don't do...as far as disassembly of a 1922 magazine? Have soaked the M2 and M1 mags I have but am curious as to how involved/difficult taking one apart and re-assembly is. I have disassembled 50+ other brand mags but with the cost/scarcity of these I don't want to cause greater issues. Thanks a day ahead to all those men & women who served!!!!

I've never had a need to disassemble a mag, but it appears petty straight forward. The floor-plate is retained by the four detentes, so you would need to ply one side of the floor-plate to clear them. Then you slide the floor-plate off sideways. This releases the spring and follower. Note that the follower has a loading assist button that travels in a slot on the right side.

I have disassembled and cleaned (thoroughly) many rimfire magazines in the past that were gritty/did not move as freely as they could. It may be that not all magazines from different manufacturers/different eras move/operate with the same ease. Maybe some more "soaking" in cleaner/lube will help.

Art, I am not sure I followed your instructions. I understand there are 4 holes in the bottom of the magazine but from looking at them I wonder how you pry the tabs to remove or put back together. Maybe best to be left alone. Thanks, Craig

The magazines were not designed to be disassembled. It has been done as I have one on which
the magazine floorplate was reinstalled upside. I suggest leaving it alone or dipping the whole magazine in some type of solvent.

Herschel, the more I thought about it the more concerned I became about damaging a magazine. Appreciate your advice. I have 2 that I have soaked in some Ed's Red I made up. They are cleaner, function smoother than before. IMO, best to leave alone. Thanks again, Happy Thanksgiving to all.
