    I just received a steel magazine in the mail, it was used and it had slight amounts of rust. it was expected, but how is the best way to re-paint? dissassemble, sand and remove paint and rust, and spraypaint?

    i bought some used ar mags that had rust spots, i just used some wd40 and some light sand paper to clean the rust off and repainted with black krylon camo paint. the springs and followers where still good . i don't know if that's the right way to do it .

    I'd park it and then use some kind of moly paint on it, which would likely stand up better than most other paints.
