22cal mag-issues and questions

so the 22 cal mag (226)is made of plastic and does not allow the slide to lock back after the last shot. I have what appears to be a defective one that does not allow more than 9 rounds to be loaded. It seems that the bottom is glued on so I cant dissassemble it and look for the problem. I see that there are aftermarket followers that catch the slide. Where would I find mags that can be opened up to allow for a replacement folower ?

** EDIT** What a poor design.. found that after pressing bottom detent , the only way to remove bottom was place the very thin edge of the bottom on the edge of a table and bang like hell. No need for it to be that tight....

Although I have not tried yet it appears that the mag can be disassembled as usual. I have always been able to get 10 rounds in each of mine.

Yes it does appear that it can be disassembled but the bottom plate will not budge after pressing the retainer

They are damn stiff to take apart for the first time..they loosen up a little after the initial opening.
Sigpower makes shorter mag plugs that increase capacity to 15..they have an extra power spring too along with an extended follower that will keep the slide partially opened after the last round.
Nice upgrades, imho.

I've never been able to get my mags apart yet. I've always stopped short of the force that must be needed to get the plate started and backed off for fear of damaging the mag.

If anyone wants to send me their mags I will be glad to remove and then trim the base plate for free.
I have done this to about 50 mags so far with zero issues.
Just PM me.

Also the best way I have found to remove the base plate is:
Tight magazine base plate

Push a small screw driver in the hole and just leave it there, put the edge of a base plate on the edge of a counter top or table and push down on the mag (in hand) against the base plate, it should slide a bit with some force. Then pull the screw driver out the plug will be well depressed and then you can just pull the base plate off. You may need to use a rocking side to side motion to help the base plate come off.

A table edge works real well. Just make sure you only have the base plate on the edge as you push down or you will be there all day.

Then oil it and also do it as many times as you care to. it will get better the more you remove it.
I hope this helps!

Jeff Sigs advice on opening is accurate.. That is how I learned how to do it.
I am sending one mag back to Sig who will replace . It will only accept 9 rounds. After some nonsense from them about spring tightness which is rather odd for a 22 cal mag I was able to convince them it was a stacking issue. There was a large gap between first round in and second causing the follower to bottom out prematurely. They were verry good about it and are sending me a return envelope..
