Do Dawson's base pads come apart, meaning the little slide part that you move to take it off of the mag? I hae a collection of them in different colors and I was thinking about blasting them and either Duracoat or Gunkote to get them all alike..

Oven cleaner will take the anodizing right off and leave you with silver pads.

If you look at the sliding gate, towards the front of the pad, you'll see a little hole. Under that hole is the pin which clicks into the detent in the gate, holding it closed. Push on that pin with a paper clip and slide the gate backwards, and you can remove the gate, the pin, and its spring, at which point you are fully disassembled.
