    Does it need cleaning???? Cuse if not I'm gonna recommended you leave it alone. You haven't exactly been havin the best of luck in firearms disassembly and reassembly.



    Did you find anything out on the Ruger yet?

    Interesting. I don't know about your luck or the above mentioned Ruger, but cleaning the mag tube is pretty simple. Remove the screw holding the plug in the end at the muzzle, be careful, the spring is almost half again as long as the tube. The spring comes right out and the follower will follow after it. Clean it like a bore, with a patch and jag, making sure lot to leave the patch in the tube. But they don't need cleaning very often, unless someone's been shooting BP loads in it.
