    I spent some time on youtube looking for instructions on how to take apart and clean a S & W 9MM magazine (10 rounder.)

    Found nothing and this one looks like it doesn't come apart. Ideas or reference on YOUTUBE? 9mm Cart.jpg

    I would assume just like a normal magazine but you will need a longer punch to reach up through the hole in the center bottom of the basepad to lift the locking plate and slide the base pad off the body of the magazine.

    ETA: Jump forward to ~1:45

    If you cant do it like you normally would, can you do it like a 1911 mag?

    Push the follower down and trap the spring with a punch, and then up end it and shake the follower out?
