Hello, I'm a newbie to the forum.

Just got a SA M1A NM and I have both 10 and 20 round magazines. Trained with and carried an M14 in the Army in the 60's but I have not touched one since then until a few weeks ago. I can't recall how to break down and reassemble the magazines. Can someone describe this for me?

Also, if you compete in highpower service rifle, do you have to use a 20 round mag? Thanks for any info.

Aloha SJS:

Remove the magazine floor plate, by sticking something into the small hole (like a punch tip or small screw driver) lift up the lip gently and the floorplate will slide out.

Remove the magazine spring. Take it easy and it won't jump out at you... and the magazine follower will be attached at the other end of the magazine spring (it will come out as one unit).

That should be it... magazine floorplate, magazine spring, magazine follower and the magazine body...

Reassemble in reverse of this procedure...

I hope this helps...

Aloha and Best Wishes,

Tom O.
