The mag catch is independant of the rest of the internals. It can be removed with the frame on, or off of the receiver.
I chose to do it with the frame off simply for ease of handling.

Grey Crows right, on or off, it's independant.
I to would remove it with the reciever off though, just an easier way to work.
Here are some steps to perhaps show you what's inside.
But remember, you don't have to go through these steps to get the catch off, these are just for reference.

That's the 1st time I've seen detailed printed photos of the frame dissasembly.
LOL, the 1st time I dissasembled the frame I did it by Goose Shit in the Moon Light, so to speak.
I've been taking guns apart, and putting them back for a long time, just through looking at how they work.

This is a very cool and informative picture series. Where did you get it from?
I think that this is FAQ material. Good stuff. Rack it!

Yeah, It's a 6 page thing that I got off of ebay 3 years ago
called the "Thompson27A-1 Takedown Guide".
Looks home grown, distributed by "Radocy".
I think they/him made a bunch of these for different guns.
Be glad to pin the rest of the pages if anyone wants.
Though I could get my reciever off the frame when the internals got all crunched up...
That, it did not cover. Luckily there was PK.

Grew Crow, That's what I do too, best way to learn how a thing works, but I was about to go at this thing with a 5 lb hammer
