Disassembly of a Smith model 52 mag??

Hi everyone,

I wanted to disassemble my smith model 52 mag because it is absolutely filthy and I am getting feeding problems.

I removed the baseplate and spring, but since the follower assembly slides into machined grooves on the side of the mag, I cannot seem to figure out how to remove it.

Any thoughts???

Boy, it's been a lot of years since I had mine.
The follower was held in by a steel pin that "followed" the grooves in the magazine body.
There was a round area at the end of the slot, on the bottom end, if I remember right. Slide the follower and pin down, then push the pin out the round hole.

I haven't seen any of the later ones. I heard they had plastic followers. The metal ones looked like they were a handful to manufacture.

Best, Kur
When I die I'm going straight to Heaven, 'cause I served my time at Coonan Arms.
