Dear Preppers and Survivalists,
Photographer's Mate 3rd Class

First up is a quick and informative video on disassembling a magazine. I would like to point out two things. First, the gentleman does a great job of removing the floor plate. Second, as you can see removing a green magazine follower is a pain.
My suggestion: don't replace a green magazine follower. They are still 'good.'

The second video is also quick and informative with a little more detail then the first one.
Now, ... I have two problems with this video. First, use a bigger tool like a screwdriver, cleaning rod, or a rifle cartridge to remove the floor plate. It's safer. Second, try not to bend the floor plate.

A little longer video then the first two. Like the others, a very good video. The presenter also illustrates the tilting problem with the older followers

One More Video
This is a great video. Plus, it illustrates how to clean your firearms' magazines.
Needless to say, you don't want to dry your polymer magazines in the oven. I also suggest you don't wrap the magazines in a paper towel.
Lastly, the dry film is sprayed on the inside of the magazine and the magazine body is painted in a camouflage pattern that blends in with your area of the world.
