    That's possible too, I'll have to check out the bottom of the mag and see if it fits.

    You don't? I don't think i have any that don't have a removable bottom. How do you take them apart for cleaning?

    In the OP you stated a Mec gar (?) Hi-power magazine, and I assumed you were referring to a 9MM Hi-power pistol magazine. I am not familiar with those, but all "my" .45 ACP magazines have permanent-attached bottoms or base-plates. That's why the "yellow plastic" tool is provided. To retain a compressed spring so the "follower" can be removed and then the yellow plastic pin removed and the magazine spring dropped out. THAT is how you disassemble a 1911 magazine.

    Yeah you're right i do have a few like this. My 7 round 1911 mags and colt mustang mags are like this. I haven't ever cleaned them because they don't get much use. I mainly use 8 and 10 round mags for my 1911 and they all have removable bottoms along with my glock, S&W, bersa, magnum research, ruger, AR, AK , Hi Power and maybe 1 or 2 others. I do have a couple of old .32's and they may come apart from the top but it's been a long time since i had them apart.
    Anyway the yellow thing goes in a hole in the bottom of the Mec gar mag to hold the spring and then there is a Phillips screw to remove the bottom, that's something new as well as all the others i have you use a punch to push a button.

    It's one of those pegs for the triangle board game they have at all the tables at The Cracker Barrel.

    Now, how did that get in there?

    Good one.

    I'm not making this up:

    While waiting, with family, I Googled how to solve that puzzle on my smart phone, hidden from view by others, under the table.

    There are YouTubes. It was a hoot and I looked like a genius.

    True genius would be remembering, without the YouTube boost.
