Can I use CLP to clean inside of a mag ?

Finally got around to cleaning the inside of the mags. The question is, can I use a patch with some CLP on it and then wipe dry ? Or should I use something else.

I prefer a non oily cleaner such as Alcohol. Soapy water will work as well. Make sure the magazines are dry and not oily before loading.

Just throw them in the dishwasher with the pistol.

Cleaner of your choice so long as you get ALL oil/grease out before reassembly. AND ..... something to think about:

Best way for me is to put a patch on business end of a toothbrush and with copious amount of Hoppe's 9 go to town on the inside of the magazine. Repeat the process with a dry cloth. Use lightly oiled patch on the spring and the follower.

Thanks. The reason I asked was, I am wary of putting oil in mag, yet CLP seems like such a good cleaner.

I ended up using some windex-like fluid, toothbrush, rinsed with water, and dried with paper towel. Seems to work.

Surprisingly, there was no grime inside. Almost. Each mag went through probably 300 rounds or so.

They really don't seem to pickup much fouling.
I bought a bunch of LEO trade in magazines and most of the base pads had never been off before. I decided to go ahead to clean them before putting them in to service,what a bust.

Other than some lint in one their wasn't much in the way of carbon fouling either.
So unless I dump one in the sand,dirt or mud they just get a breath of air around the follower and a wipe. SJ 40
