View Full Version : Mec-Gar 20 round magazine - beretta 92fs - question

April 9, 2009, 06:32 PM
I just got a new Mec-gar, 20 round magazine for my 92fs. It has the +2 base-plate extension, and I'm just wondering how you take the base plate off for cleaning the magazine as it doesn't have the usual push-button release on the bottom.:confused: Any help would be much appreciated!

I know it's been nearly a month and you probably already figured it out, but I'll post instructions for posterity in case someone else needs to know. I just picked up 2 of these mags and it took me a little fidgeting to take them apart.

If you look at the back side of the mag down by the floor plate, you'll see that the retaining plate actually sticks out of the mag body itself. This is important to remember during reassembly. The retaining plate has a rectangular keyhole cut into it. You can use a coin to lift up on the retaining plate and the floor plate will be free to slide off.
