My W. German mag has a spring plate or flat middle plate under the base plate, I call it that for lack of knowledge reasons as to what it actually called, that holds the spring, which is underneath of the bottom slide plate. I lube up the mag to free it up with CLP and then take it apart wearing eye protection, as you can't replace a eye if it gets damaged. I don't have any pictures of the process, but once I push in the bottom, I just slide up the bottom base plate, hold the spring plate with my thumb and pull the rest of the base plate off, release the spring tension slowly and fully disassemble and clean.How do you remove the base plate? It is a w.german 7rd. Mag. with the american style push button release. Did a search and came up with nothing. Thanks
Sorry, This is just my way of accomplishing that task and not something that is a formal process. I hope this helps.
