HELP! C Products magazine modification

I picked up a dozen C products for my DPMS SASS in .308. The magazines fit VERY tight in the well and will not drop free. They will shoot fine once properly seated.

I took one of the magazines and rubbed a little of the metal/paint off the spine of the magazine, and it now fits perfectly. It drops when the mag is unloaded, and fits nice and snug.

Only problem I have is what to use to cover up the part that I sanded down so it won't rust? What can I buy to spray over that part that is now metal in color instead of black? Here is a pic of what I did...the green lines show where I shaved off some of the metal. Gona have to do this a dozen times....I just need to know what to use to cover/protect them so they don't rust (what about that black BBQ paint?).

Thanks guys!

You could pick up some Birchwood Casey Perma Blue and apply it to the area with a Q tip to blacken it. Then apply oil as per the directions. I bought a 3oz bottle of it for around $6.

I highly doubt it. A gun shop should have it. It is primarily marketed towards the firearms market.

Gona call my local shops now. If they don't have it, Brownells or Midway should have it...right?

Yeah they will have that brand or some other brand. You could probably get it on amazon or ebay also.

All it really is, is an acid solution which turns the steel black.

Oh I forgot to ask if the mags are steel or aluminum? If steel you can use the product I mentioned. If aluminum you need the version to turn aluminum black. You mentioned rust so I figured we were talking steel mags.

Double check that they aren't aluminum. If a magnet doesn't stick to the mags, I wouldn't worry about it. Aluminum doesn't oxidize the same way iron-based metals do, and it won't be a problem.

Hey guys.

Just got back from the gun shop and picked up some Birchwood Casey Perma Blue. I triple checked and the mags appear to be steel as they are magnetic.

My friend who works at the gun shop told me to use some #4 wool and rust resistant oil and everything should be done in steps (using the wool twice?).

Thanks for the help fellas, can anyone guide me through the proper steps as to how to do this correctly? I'd hate to open up my chest of mags next summer and find them full of rust down the spine because I didn't properly finish them. Thanks again guys!!

Read the directions on the bottle. That is what I went by. I did notice if I blue, dry, steel wool and then blue a couple times it gets darker.

Gotcha, so this was just to make it look darker.

All good because I'm only going to skim/shave off the part that is hidden. Thanks!!

(I have to do this to about 30 mags now)

I would suggest you disassemble the mags completely and if they smell you might want to try a baking soda solution to soak the mags in for a period of time to neutralize the acid in the cold blue. Two things I hate about cold blue, it doesnt hold up as well as hot bluing or rust bluing and it can stink.
