You'll start by unscrewing the magazine cap fron the end of the magazine. It's the knurled knob that also holds the barrel in the receiver. The forearm slides back and forth on the magazine. Gently pry out the spring stop once the cap is off. The spring and plug/follower should just fall out when the weapon is held down, but if you're not holding the barrel, it'll fall out of the receiver also. Some magazine plugs have molded weak points that allow you to break them off to increase the amount of ammo in the magazine. A large pair of pliers with padded jaws may be needed to break the cap loose. Brownells carries weapon specific tools for gunsmiths and they sell to civilians.
