New 10mm mags welded construction?

I just received my 5 new 10mm mags from Joe's Magmania Base plate is welded in place.
Can these be disassembled for cleaning? If yes how do I accomplish that?

Are you referring to cleaning the mags by removing the spring ??

If so....

Push the follower down with a flat blade screwdriver, chopstick, needle nose pliers tip, or whatever. Make sure the follower goes down straight, and you don't get it all cattywampus.

Next, take a small diameter screwdriver or rusty nail, and stick it through one of the holes in the side of the magazine.

Now let the follower up, and the rusty nail will hold the spring compressed. Invert the magazine, let the follower fall to the top of the mag, and align it so it will come out from between the lips.

Point the magazine away from your face, put your hand on top of it to keep the spring from shooting across the room, and then pull out the rusty nail. The spring will come out of the mag, and it's now ready for cleaning.

Reassembly is sort of the opposite, but you'll need to carefully compress the spring into the magazine so you can retain it with the nail.

Thank you for the video and the explanation. Up until now I have only taken the mags apart that have removable floor plates. I figured there had to be a basic or simple way to take them apart and clean them. Unfortunately my mind sometimes is more simple and basic than the object that I am working on.

Wouldn't a "rusty nail" defeat the purpose of cleaning a mag if the rust would come off and into the clean mag...???.....

I think Rusty Iron is used to rust being around.
