Where can you get the dry moly (or whatever it is) that is on USGI mags. I checked all the hardware stores in my area and no one has it.
Anyone know of a specific product? Thanks.

Dick's SportingGoods(not sure if this is a national chain or just midwest) carries the Birchwood Casey moly lube.

You're looking for "Perma-Slik G" which is the Mil Spec. moly coat found on USGI Mags. Says so on the can.

Do a search on "Perma-Slik G" and you'll find the source.

Method of use:

1. Disassemble, Clean, Degrease with Simple Green and dry.

2. Lightly sand mag body with "Fine" sand paper. I like to use the Foeam Sanding Blocks. Lightly sand floor plate.

3. Suspend mag. by hooking from ceiling with close hanger through the mag catch hole, or use a plastic coat hanger slid into the bottom of the mag body as a "Holder" while spraying.

4. Lightly spray on 1 coat.

5. Let dry to touch and lay on paper towel covered cookie sheet and bake in oven at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. (No it won't screw up the oven!)

6.Repeat #4 an #5

7. Let cool.

8. Lightly spray floor plate with "Flat Black" Rustoleum spray paint. 1 coat will do. Let dry overnight.

9. Reassemble

10. To remove "Powder Coat" (which will rub off pretty quick anyway. It's really just overspray.), rub the mag body down with a cotton rag impregnated with a light lubricant like 3 in 1 oil, or WD-40.

That's it! Remember that the magazine was designed to be a "Disposable" device. Therefore the original moly coat is not "Bullet Proof". You will see wear at the mag catch hole after a few insertion and extractions of the mag.

This is great fun and you can actuallyt make some fairly good profits if you buy the "Very Used" USGI mags for under $10.00. Refurbished mags go for around $20.00 to $25.00 each for 30 rounders. More for 20 rounders.

Hope this helps.
