M/S magazine cleaning

Ok after about 4,000 rounds through my m40 w/ six mags i'm starting to get double feeds.

Ditto on S9 w/ 2 mags and about 1500 rounds.

say about 1 in 200 rounds on both pistols have a jam and all but one of them has been unable to be cleared w/ a QUICK tap, rack, ready.

I'm gonna mark my mags (meant to before just didn't get to it) as I know a number of bad mags have cropped up leading to some of the (mostly false) reputation for unreliablity. I actually suspect two mags in particular, but I need to clean and mark them before I test further.

I've cleaned the extractors (including one spring disappeared into the corner of the office, and had to buy a whole new assembly).

As I've never cleaned the mags, how often should this be done and what is the procedure? I know there've been directions on the old GT forum and i could probably do it by looking at them, but a repeat would be nice for all the new blood (and I'm too lazy to search as bed is calling me).

How often are you cleaning the magazines roughly? How many rounds before you clean?
