I've been having problems with some of my mags rusting internally and have always been concerned about the insides of bolts and the like.When i recently took my "new" Turk apart and disassembled the bolt for de-greasing i found it hard to completely re-oil all the small crevices and the like.I'm running a test using PA-63 mags and the Turks disassembled bolt,which involves completely submerging the entire assembled mag,and all of the disassembled bolt in full synthetic 5w30 Havoline motor oil for an hour.I will allow them to drain for at least two days before i reassemble or use.I wouldnt do this to a carry mag or something like an SKS's bolt,but to things that may not see constant use..Waddya think?
BY the way,this is my FIRST POST!!!:cool:

I think you might be better off spraying with a dry lube. The dry lube won't attract and hold as much dust, carbon, etc. but will still aid in preventing corrosiion.

I too would just spray them down with a gun oil. Break Free comes in a spray bottle.

Dry lube only for the insides of magazines.

Magazines will accumulate dirt, lint and whatever if lubed with any 'wet' lubricants.

Faulty magazines are still one of the most common -if not THE most common, reasons for weapons failure/malfunction.

Dry lube only. Wax will also work.
