I useally soak them in hot simple green after whiping most of the crap off with newspapers. use an old bottle brush place on a cookie sheet on warm to dry. the bodies. I don't like placing the mag springs in the oven, don't want to draw temper out of them.
P.S. Don't let the better half catch you doing this with her good cookie sheets, she'll ask questions

I use a homemade CLP mix that works really well for cleaning and lubricating the gun and mags, but for cleaning I just use straight kerosene. Let 'em soak for a few days then scrub then out.
My CLP mix was obtained from American Gunsmith magazine. It makes five gallons.
2 Gal. Kerosene (low odor)
2 Gal Mineral spirits (low odor also)
3 Qts. Marvel Mystery Oil
1 Qt. Rislone engine treatment
Mix in a 6 gal. pail, remove a couple gallons to add later as makeup.....put in empty Mineral spirits jugs)
I use a screw-on "Beta seal" lid.....makes it easier to use. I also put a stainless colander in the bottom of the bucket to eliminate the need to dig for small parts.
This stuff works great on all guns and is a fantastic rust preventer, BUT it WILL darken polished Nickel finishes slightly (no effect on bright nickel Thompson bolts).

These are 30-rounders (all Seymour so far) that I bought from CDNN. Great condition and a great price. Hard to believe these things are probably 60 years old.
Now all I need is a gun to put them in...
