I wouldn't worry about it much; guess it depends on how tight they fit in your magazine well, but either way it's going to wear off on certain areas.
What I have done before is put masking tape on the part of the mag that will be up inside the mag well, use gunscrubber or whatever cleaner/degreaser and just paint them.
You could also try Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black.

Just paint them. Touch them up if they show wear and tear.
