    Anytime the gun needs a good cleaning i do the magazines. It's easy, fast lets me know if i need to clean more often.
    I use nothing but dry lube. Not any old so called dry lube. No graphite, silicone, petroleum base stuff. it collects crud in the mag.
    I use mil tec 1 dry lube or mag slick. It does not gather crud like other lube will.

    I pop mine apart and clean them whenever I clean my pistol. I have some #9 in a spray bottle and I just spray the insides down and use a 12 gauge bore mop on a rod.

    Thanks evenyone. I never even knew how much "dirt" (mostly burned powder soot I would guess) was being left on the mag, till I got my G2c with the bright yellow follower. Every other pistol I own has a black follower.

    I've changed floor plates plenty of times so taking them apart and putting them back together will not be an issue.

    I hose mine down with brake cleaner. I used to break them down for a good cleaning often, but never found much inside. So, about once a year, I try to do the deep clean. Still don’t find much.

    I always clean my magazines after shooting. It prevents erosion/rust/decay of plastic overtime and keeps the bullets clean on the next magazine, that is if its carry ammo.
    Magazine is part of the gun, clean them. I just use a tiny drop of clip, and even wipe the sides down in and out... make sure to dry it and not keep oil on plastic, you just want a drop to remove the residue of gun powered.

    That is a good question. I NEVER cleaned my magazines until I saw a friend of mine that is a CC holder and former Marine at a tailgate several years ago. The subject came up of 'what are you doing next weekend' and his response was to perform his annual magazine inspection and cleaning. Got me to think of that so I also took all my mags apart. I was surprised at the amount of sand, lint, grime and other stuff that was in them. So my annual "Mag Cleaning Day is Jan1". And like JTG452, i fully dissassemble it, brush out the inside/springs, wipe down all of the components with the cleaning rag. No liquid cleaning chemicals or lubes other than what was on the rag.
