Can somebody explain to me how to remove the magazine catch? I've been pushing it in and turning it both ways with a flat head screw driver, but it doesn't seem to watch to go. I don't want to turn any harder for fear of gouging the metal. Am I doing this right? I can't seem to find any instructions for this.

You should be able to see a spring loaded lock plunger on the left side - front edge of the button.

Push it down with a small pin punch or scribe and the button will un-screw.

Thanks a lot, I never would have guessed that. I replaced the spring with a new unit from Wolff and cleaned out the catch guide hole for the spring, things are much better now!
