I'm not sure about the Colt mags, but if they are similar to the Bushmaster new type 10's they cannot be taken apart without destroying the mag.

a simple operation..., drill out the rivit & remove base plate, if you want it to be a 20 rounder just leave out the "U" shapped restricter, clean & reassemble.

IIRC, there should be a small medal tab on the front of the magazine. Push the tab down and pull the black bottom forward off the mag.

Best thing ya can do wth that piece of junk, is toss it in the trash and get yourself some real USGI 20 and 30 round mags.

I got two with my new Colt and both were guaranteed "jam-o-matics", I tossed 'em both. Cleaning ain't gonna help those things, hell even the ones that come with new Bushmasters ain't much better.

The PC mags sold with new rifles IMO aren't designed to work because most know they aren't worth a darn, so it's best to get rid of 'em.

While in my core I agree with mr_wilson's reply, I wouldn't necessarily throw the baby out with the bath water... I've been lucky enough to have a local shop who believes whole-heartedly if it's COLT, it's gotta be good! He gives generous trade on post ban PC 10 round Colt mags, and not to shabby on Bushmaster etc, towards perfectly good used USGI 20's and 30's. YMMV

thanx guys and your right it is the only mag i have that jams. almost every third round. and the funny thing is the mag looks brand new. i bought it from a local dealer who had a bag of mags he got in trade.i bought two colt 20rnd and the one 9rnd (which only holds 8rnds by the way)for about 40bucks. the two 20's look like stoner made them himself there old as dirt and worn but they have never jammed once.and the brand new looking hunting mag. almost always jams go figure?thanx again bently.
