Yup, just check youtube. Note the orientation of the spring and follower you're replacing, and wear eye protection.Google is your friend. You tube as well.
Basically turn mag upside down. Push in dot on base and slide bottom off. It can be tough sometimes.
Voila. The mag is apart.
Cute tool, but hardly a necessity. I use my hand, a small drift, and a bottle brush. No scratches on my mags, except from hitting the ground.
Maybe it's me, but I have no trouble taking apart Glock mags with the armorers tool or a punch, or a small screwdriver that can fit in the baseplate hole. Some of the old ones can be crusty, but it's not a big deal. You just jam the tool in the hole in the base, squeeze the sides, and push forward.
+1. I saw a guy at a match using that thing Saturday and had a hard time understanding what it was or why it would be needed.No, you're not. Unless you're a complete fumblefingers, disassembling and reassembling the mags is pretty simple once you see it done and get through the first one yourself.
Press harder. If you are really desperate, gently pinch the sides of the mag with a pair of channellocks that have electrical tape over the teeth.Is there something in the MA legal 10 round 9mm mags that makes it so you can't disassemble them? I have couple lying around and have never been able to get the floor plate off, those little tabs that keep it on wont move when I squeeze the sides of the mag
If you have U notch, you need to replace the follower with the 9mm3. The current follower 9mm 6 - fits ONLY mags factory supplied with "4", "5" or "6" followers. Got that info from the current official Glock parts list.Thanks for the info. After a quick google search, it seems like Lone Wolf has all the parts I need, but any local dealers stock mag parts, I have three "U" shape pre ban mags.
