maintainance is just another aspect of keeping
a semi running reliably.
Over time with pocket carry lint can maybe
get inside or even a few particles of grit
- and these may prejudice operation. Therefore,
from time to time it has to be worthwhile
dismantling mag's to inspect and clean - good
insurance! Perhaps the most critical component
for freedom of operation is the follower,
if that snags then a feed failure could occur.
Someone brought up the question as to which
way the magazine spring should go in, so I
thought a picture might help as a reminder.
| Here are
the components laid out, in the orientation
relative to their positions. The easiest
way I think to remember how the spring goes
is to relate the angle of the follower to
the angle of the spring end - that angle
should be complimentary to both.
I regard this spring as symmetrical and
so reversal end to end will not matter,
just the correct insertion in the follower.
My own thinking on lube and magazines
is - don't!!
Some mags will have a white lithium
grease on the spring when new but I
think to avoid accumulation of crud,
things are best left dry, other than
perhaps a small amount of dry-lube inside
the casing to ensure max freedom for
Goes without saying but - when removing
mag' base plate - do watch out for the
spring escaping energetically!
