CLEANING YOUR MAGAZINE OR DRUM

Black Dog Magazines are made with Polycarbonate; this is the same material that is used for bullet proof glass. The magazine is tough and takes heat well, but like most plastics it does have a weakness. Chemical cleaners like Hoppe #9 and acetone or toluene can have an affect on your magazine. Fear not! The solution to this is simple: Remove your mags before cleaning your gun. The cleaners that attack polycorbonate will all air dry in a few minutes. If you want to clean your Black Dog mags we suggest you use warm soapy water.

While assembling your magazine or drum back together, make sure you don't tighten the screws too tight as it could cause stress cracks or damage the magazine and parts.


Listed below are instructions on different models of magazines:
