I haven't had to clean my mags yet because I haven't put enough rounds thru any one of them. But, I can see that as I do, I may want to be proactive and clean them to prevent a jam from happening at the range.

I know how to take the mag apart. Also, it looks like there are some rollers behind the spring. But, do the rollers that are in the mag insertion area (where the round rotates 90 degrees) come out? If so, how hard are they to put back? Seems like it might be tricky.

I assume once ya take it apart, U just rinse it out with water and wait for it to dry before reassembly, correct?

You can rinse it out with water or just wipe it down with a fresh clean automotive micro fiber cloth (these things will pickup the smallest particles). Up to you.

no its not hard take off the base plate push in the round button at the flat end that fits in the front of the gun. I think soap and warm water will be fine let them dry out oil the spring just put a few drops of oil on it so it has a slight film wipe off excess. oh BTW BE CAREFULL THAT THE SPRING DOES NOT GET BENT when you push it back in take your time OR PARTS SHOOT OUT WHEN YOU TAKE OFF THE BASE PLATE........if you run in to trouble i can walk you through it k.

took mine apart - the rollers are actually just loose in there and they will roll right out
Is it tough to get it all back in place?
No first time i opened the mag - i really had no idea what i was doing and all the parts popped out -

All you do to reassemble is put the 2 rollers in - then the spring - then the base plate, very simple
