Ok I picked up a couple of Kimbers mags at a steal.....

How and the heck do you get the spring out out the Mag body of a factory Kimber mag? I have never used Kimber mags.
The bottom of the mag appears to be weilded. So that only leaves taking the spring out of the top.


Before anyone says it I already have some new Wilsons ordered.....:biglaugh:

Push the follower down a bunch - rounds of ammo loaded into the mag will work fine.

Then push a piece of wire, such as coat hanger thru a set of holes in the side of the mag.

Then remove the rounds. The wire will hold the spring down.

The follower will now be loose and can be shaken out of the mag.

Then carefully remove the wire.

Yes, I've come to the conclusion that a welded base mag is actually better, unless I decide I want to take it apart twice a day. :biglaugh:

I would like to have one of the magazines shown in the original Milspec drawings with the pinned bases, just for the history of it.
