AI Steel Magazines - take down method?

Recommended Posts

Most other types or brands of rifle mag that I have tend to be obvious as to strip down method

Got a couple of steel AI mags - cannot see an obvious way to remove the baseplate - it simply has the dimple in it to prevent movement; so do you use a special tool to lift the baseplate, or press it from the inside, etc.
Not seeing a way to prise the baseplate from the front edge of the mag. either.

The special tool is called a soft faced mallet. Just give the floorplate a whack from the back edge.

Very easy to strip to maintain using that method or soft wood block and tap baseplate (in direction of travel)
