Cleaning Glock Magazines
Step by step instructions for cleaning Glock
magazines. They seem to last forever, but they should be cleaned
periodically to ensure best performance. Cleaning them is fast and easy (once
you know what you are doing). The hardest part is
taking them apart for

What Are Glock Magazines Made Of?
They are made of plastic and steel. The body (tube) is made of steel

magazine back together. DO NOT LUBRICATE THE MAGAZINE PARTS. Any type of
lubricant will only attract dirt and grime and "dirty up" your Glock
