From the manual here is what it says.
H. If magazine becomes dirty, which usually happens after 200 shots, it
should be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. To do so, use a punch to
press in on magazine spring plate where it protrudes into the hole in the
magazine floorplate. Slide the magazine floorplate toward the front of the
magazine, taking care to prevent the forcible ejection of the magazine spring
plate and compressed magazine spring. Withdraw magazine spring plate and
magazine spring from magazine body. Turn magazine upside down and
remove magazine follower (fig. 1).
For PT 24/7 .45 ACP magazine disassembly see fig. 2.

Well for the PT111 Pro, I bought one spare mag, and the costs locally were right at $28 locally.
I saw plenty of PT111 mags cheaper, but they were not indicated for the PRO series. Apparently there was a difference, but I do not know exactly what it is. I did not have the gun with me, so I could not compare & buy the cheaper ones.
