I have never....not once. I spray them out....that’s it.
Thousands and thousands of rounds.
Mags I carry are fresh.
I guarantee you would want this “people” standing next to you hitting bad guys or on your Bullseye team 🙂
I have never disassembled any of my magazines either. I never have encountered any problems in thousands of rounds through various pistols and magazines. I clean the follower and under the lips, and just a quick wipe of the body of the magazine. I will only disassemble one when it starts to have issues. Then it will most likely be time for either a new magazine spring, or an entirely new magazine.I just took it apart. It’s not even dirty.
