One of the issues with AK-47 magazines, they are made out of steel, and steel rust. So from time to time it might be necessary to paint your AK mags. This article is going to discuss how I paint my AK-47 magazines. This may not be the “best” way to do it, but this is how I paint my mags.
If you wanted a professional paint job, you would need to disassemble the magazine, buff the paint off all of the parts, spray on a layer of primer, spray a few coats of the color paint you want, then reassemble the magazines.
All I am going to do is buff with a wire wheel then paint.
I have a spare boat trailer in the backyard, so that i what I painted my magazines on. Where the tongue of the trailer meets the frame, that is where I put the block of wood I was going to be working on.
