Judging from the rest of you guys, I guess I better start cleaning my mags. I haven't cleaned my M&P mags since I bought it (4 years ago ) Haven't had a problem in 6000 rounds though, so I never saw a reason to.

Actually I have magazines for M1 carbines, Mini-14's, M-14/M1a's, that I havn't cleaned or even dissassembled since the early to late 1970's. Usually just shake them out if sand or dirt gets in them and thats all. However if they get oily by some odd happening I dissassemble and douche out with Brake Clean to get the oil out. I likes my magazines dry as popcorn farts.

I usually only clean my mags when the pages start to stick, but in an emergency damp tissues works just fine

It had to be done, I'm glad someone finally said it.

I clean mine with Break Free CLP. I disassemble wipe all parts with a break free treated cloth then wipe dry and reassemble

When one of my autos is stripped for cleaning, it only takes an extra minute to take apart the magazines and do a quick clean. The quick blast with Brake Kleen just makes me feel that the entire job is complete.

Seems like fast & easy peace of mind.
