Clean and then reassemble in reverse order.

MAGAZINE- Compress spring with a AP brush or punch rod. insert a small tool (such as a small Allen wrench) into a forward facing hole in the side of the magazine to hold the compression of the spring ( use a forward hole and not the bottom hold toward the back of the mag so you dont pinch the follower with the tool). either shake the hell out of the mag while holding upside down, or break the follower free of the spring using another small tool. holding a brush or rag over the top of the mag, remove the tool to release the spring safely. spring orientation is such that the loop in the end of the spring is the top, and is suppose to be facing out to the front of the mag.
