This is Comet One,

I am a newbie to Hi-point, I have purchased a JCP 40 and
a 9C.
I found the JCP 40 easier for me to handle then the C 9. I am a
old man with weak hands. The JCP 40 having a longer barrel , has
longer recoil spring and heavier slide, making gun easier to rack.

I like both guns very much.

My question ... How do you clean the magazines?

Does bottom plate come off?

Most of the magazines that I have cleaned, the bottom plate comes
off. Also, I know how to clean the 1911 magazines where you push
the follower down and trap the spring with a punch and then shake
the follower out.

I know this is probably been asked many times but I could not
find info.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Comet One[glow=red,2,300][/glow]

Comet One to Ape,

Thanks Ape, When you say you tilt the follower then pull it out
from the top, do you push down on the rear of the follower so the
front comes up?

Also, do you have the name of the product th you use after cleaning
magazines?

Comet One to Ape,

Well, I figured out how to remove follower. Actually, it was not
too difficult. There is onlyone way it can come out.

The hard part was putting the follower and spring back in.
I came to the conclusion that you had to push spring down into
magzine and retain it down with a punch while you put follower
back in. Since the peep holes in the magazine are only on one side,
it was very difficult.

Thanks for the info. now I know.

Again too, you are correct, magazines do not get that dirty.

I am going to go with sprays.
