I picked up one of the .22lr conversion ktis from GoingQuiet and received it last week. I had seen in one of the other threads that sigpower.com offered a solution to the last-round-slide-lock, or lack of slide lock. So before ordering the replacement follower, i wanted to take the magazine apart first. And this really is a silly question- The fieldstrip on these magazines is the same as our normal 9, 357 and 40 mags right? ...Depress the pin in the baseplate and slide it forward? I have no problem depressing the pin, but the baseplate just does noooottttt want to budge at all. It feels like it's been locked in place after it was assembled. Are these normally a b*tch to take apart?



I flaked it and didn't order any additional magazines, so I don't have any other 22mags to compare it against.





(Btw, if you're thinking of picking up one of the kits for the Sig, talk to GC, he'll take care of you. Great service, and great price!)

The .22 conversion mags should be a lot easier to take apart than the more high powered pistol calibers. Make sure you're punching the pin on the basepad completely. Without having the mag in question in front of me, I'm not sure what else I could say. Maybe try sliding it in the other direction? At any rate, good luck and have fun with your new 226 .22!

Yes the 22LR mag base plates are very hard to remove ( some of them) You will think they are glued.



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 also sand the lips a bit.

I hope this helps



Also If you really have a problem you can always send to me and Ill be glad to remove it for you.

I'm glad this was addressed. I was kind of wondering the same thing, as I've got 7 of those damn .22 mags now.

Now I need 7 of the followers, and 7 of the +5rd. spring kits...

That's funny Wes....i was so thankful I only had one of those mags as i was battling with it last night. lol. However, it was a bittersweet thought cuz i realized i'll be getting more mags too. d'oh!



Fortunately I was able to eventually get mine apart. But i did have to coax it off via Jeff's method of using the table top. (Thank you Jeff!) I'm thinking i'm gonna be sanding the lips a bit to loosen up that fit too. Oil didn't seem to help it slide on/off any better....granted i only attached/detached it 3-4 times.



I'm going shooting tomorrow, and I'm stoked about having the 22 kit now. Ahhh, the joy of plinking.

vertful,



yes the baseplates do come off, they're just very hard to get started. i pushed the pin in and used my nylon mallet to get it started. after the first mag the other 2 went easier since i knew how to do it.

I had the same magazine problem and asked the dealer about it. The response was, why would you ever want to tale it apart anyway.? If the springs get weak, just replace the whole magazine.



I'm curious how my experienced SIG-friends respond to this. Any comments?

Tongue in cheek -> I hope your dealer sells Sigs and Sig stuff at deeply discounted prices

I'm newbie to shooting and guns in general (less than 3mo)....but i'm gonna go out on a limb an say that dealer is a fuknut. Why would you want to take the magazine apart?....maybe to clean it?? Last time i looked at my lonely 22mag, I didn't see anything that would make it impervious to gases, dirt and any other type of fouling.



So yeah, if he ain't giving deep discounts.....Next!

So does "sigpower.com offered a solution to the last-round-slide-lock, or lack of slide lock." work?



Did you buy any ... how well does it work?

There are several manufacturers - (Sig included) that do not advocate an end user taking a magazine apart.

I learned the hard way ...



That you have to clean your mags if you shoot much.



I shoot a lot in competition and have had dirty Sig mags fail me - twice.



I clean they regularly since then and have never had that happen again.



JMHO
