I found some mags up in the attic. Been up there for a while. Looks like small rust spots are showing up on them. Not a lot. What's the best way to remove them?

How do I get these spots off? Dremel too?

Brass brush or brass wool and a little oil...

Get some USGI mags and store them properly.

Aluminum doesn't rust.

Are those British or USA

If British 000 steelwool and CLP then Krylon, Alumahyde II, Duracoat, etc.

If USA the trash bin is good for them.

Sure did.

I also used Flizt paste to smooth out the surface.

Count the welds. If they have 8 welds, their British. Love the British mags, they are my SHTF supply. They can rust a bit on ya though. Its good to keep the outsides oiled up with CLP. That should keep any new rust off them. Put in some green or Magpul followers in them also.
