    I'm going to redo the guts in a few cheapo AR mags and worn-out GI mags that could use an upgrade. Any tips on what springs and followers to use?

    I see Cheaper Than Dirt has a $9 AR mag rebuild kit complete with several springs and green followers and floorplates but having been burned by them before, I'm leery. Has anyone used this kit?

    Tapco has a good deal on 10 new green mil-spec followers, 10 new springs, 10 new mag dust covers along with a "haversack" for $29.99.

    I sent my mag bodies to jeepjeeplawyer@aol.com . He refinished them in Norrell Moly "HK black" for $5 each. They look better than the black Teflon coated DPMS mags I bought back in '94.

    Just for the sake of doing it, I may buy a couple more mags at the next gun show and try Brownell's AlumiBlack on them. I kept reading on AR15.com that it would flake off, but then some guys from FALFiles posted that it took 3 WEEKS to cure properly, and that it wouldn't flake off after that.
