Default AK74 magazines

I have some Bulgarian AK74 mags (circle 10) that could use some restoration.
Dull and scratches.
Any tips?

Why do anything to them at all? If your going to use them in the future they will only get scratched up again...

If they function well don't do anything. They are magazines so who cares if they have a few scratches???
