Even in front of the fireplace I'd guess the aroma would spread quickly!!
I personally like wiping all the excess off with papertowels and soaking them in Kerosene. But you can't do this inside either!!
And seeing as how I have a boxful of the greasy mags from Tapco (along with some Sten mags, too!) to clean, I'll try the heating method outside next time we have a campfire in the firepit....bet it works great!

Almost all of the smell was sucked up the chimney with the smoke due to the draw of the fire. Anyway, no one else in the house complained of the stink so I guess that is what happened to the aroma!

I fell the same way, it does leave a thin film inside to assist with protection, then the exterior can be wiped the rest of the way clean. I always apply a light coat of oil and pay particular attention the rails.
It works great!

The crazy part is that the newest looking mag doesn't feed at all! That one has become a novelty to sit on the shelf for looks. Guess I should invest in a set of mag anvils.
