Default Magazine cleaning oiling for just feed lip adjustment?

Has anyone cleaned or oiled their mags or just did the feed lip adjustment? If you have cleaned/oiled, what method did you use?

I have...what I did was disassemble the magazine, sand the follower on the front, sides, and back. Then I used (clean) 5W-30 motor oil but not much just a little goes a long way. Then reassembled the magazine and their will be a noticeable difference when you cycle rounds. No FTF either. Good luck!

are we talking about? Just rounding sharp edges? Or really changing the dimensions of the follower? Why did you use motor oil in place of gun oil?

See, that's what I was afraid of, got my C9 mag in hand and don't see anyway to disassemble it. I was more hoping for techniques to lube it up on the inside without destroying it and thinking I could put it back together

I use car wax on the exterior, and LockEase dry lube on the interior, so no contamination of powder or primer is possible.

Exercise the follower up and down with a wooden pencil till it moves smoothly. Then spray the insides with a dry lube like Liquid Wrench Dry Lube with PTFE (Teflon). Dirt, dust, and burnt powder don't stick.

With mine, I just sprayed them down with CLP, pushed the follower up and down lots of times with a dowel, let them sit on a paper towel for a few days (to drain), wiped them down, and they work fine.
