1. Remove the magazine from the gun. If it’s a detachable magazine, simply press the release button and remove it from the gun. If it’s an internal magazine, you’ll need to field strip the gun to remove it.

2. Inspect the magazine for any visible dirt or debris. If there is any caked-on dirt, use a small brush to remove it.

3. Use a clean, dry cloth to wipe down the inside and outside of the magazine.

4. Inspect the magazine spring for any rust or corrosion. If you see any, use a small brush to remove them.

5. Use a lubricant designed for firearms on the magazine spring to keep it from rusting.

6. Reassemble the magazine and reinstall it in the gun.

Part of proper maintenance is cleaning your gun regularly, including the magazine. Luckily, cleaning a Ruger 10/22 magazine is pretty easy and only takes a few minutes. Here’s what you need to do:

1) Start by removing the magazine from the gun. If there are rounds in the magazine, remove them as well. You can do this by depressing the magazine release and letting the magazine fall out into your hand.

2) Once the magazine is out, take a look at it. You should see a small hole near the top of the magazine. This is the drain hole.

3) Take a cleaning rod or some other long, thin object and insert it into the drain hole. Gently rotate the rod inside the hole. You’re doing this to remove any debris or dirt that may be inside the magazine.

4) Once you’ve rotated the rod a few times, remove it from the drain hole and examine it. If there is any residue on the rod, repeat steps 3 and 4 until the rod comes out clean.

5) Now it’s time to clean the outside of the magazine. Take a rag and wipe down the entire surface of the magazine, being sure to get into all the nooks and crannies.

6) Once you’re satisfied that the outside of the magazine is clean, reassemble your gun and you’re good to go!

Cleaning your Ruger 10/22 magazine is important to do regularly, as it will help keep your gun in good working order. By following the steps above, you can clean your magazine quickly and easily, and get back to shooting in no time.

Assuming you’re talking about a Ruger 10/22 magazine, there are a few things you can do to clean it:

  • Disassemble the magazine and remove any dirt or debris that may be inside.
  • Using a mild soap and water solution, clean all of the parts of the magazine.
  • Once everything is cleaned, dry all of the parts completely before reassembling the magazine.

If your Ruger 10/22 magazine is particularly dirty or encrusted with gunk, you may need to soak it in a mild solvent before cleaning. Be sure to follow the instructions on any solvent you use and always rinse away any residue with water before letting the parts air dry. NEVER use harsh chemicals or solvents on your magazine as these can damage the parts or even make the magazine unsafe to use.

With regular cleaning and maintenance, your Ruger 10/22 magazine will provide years of reliable service.
