Arrghh! Rust!

I just found some rust on one of my CZ-75 mags. The bad news is it's one of my older Mec Gar mags that works in my "Pre-B" CZ 75. The new mags won't fit the older gun, so I have to save this mag.

The rust is on the mag body and especially on the floorplate. I may sacrifice a floorplate off a different mag if need be, but I need that mag body. It's still mainly surface rust, but there is some pitting.

I'm usually pretty good about wiping down all the mags and guns after a range session, but this one must have slipped through. And, I know we had a light rain the last time I shot this gun.

What's going to be the best way to remove the rust and restore the mag. I don't have any extra cash for a reblue or hard chrome right now. Should I just go at it with steel wool and some gun oil? Or what?

In the meantime I coated the mag in FP 10 to put it in stasis while I figure out what to do.

4 aught ( 0000) steel wool and oil should remove the rust.

On mags to prevent rust I use A good car wax with Carnuba in it.
