View Full Version : Best/Cheapest way to refinish rusted mags

10-01-2009, 6:42 PM
Been meaning to get an AK for years, finally getting one soon so I dig out some preban mags I've had forever and low and behold I got some surface rust on one of the mags by the top where it loads into the rifle. Whats the best way to take care of this.

Thanks guys

Steel wool, then the gray dry lube spray finish.

Rebuild kits. It will look just like new and without the extra work.;)

I haven't tried it yet but I have a can of Aluma-Hyde on the way for some rusted mags. I'll probably know next week sometime if it works.

Scotchbrite pad or steel wool then Rem oil. Or if you really want to get fancy aluminum oxide blast followed by Duracoat or Norell molyresin.
