similar to auto body work, I use a boxwrench . when the wrench is under the dent, turn it 90 degrees, light touch with the body hammer, using the wrench as a small anvil. Also have some steel pieces about 1and 1/2 by 2 inches by 3/8 th inch thick ,they fit in the mag body, and can be used for multiple dents. A small prybar can be used sometimes . These got a wire wheel treatment , and a coat of black Semi Gloss engine paint. Got all 10 of the U Fix Ems from SG ammo to function perfectly with very little work. If they are really far gone, dissemble for spares tho. Two of the Yugo mags in that 10 pack only needed a wipe down with an oily rag, and had a real nice blued finish. No rust at the feed lip area, these I would scrap, once the rust creeps under the joint, it will cause more grief as far as being reliable, in my experience.
practice victory, before the battle.
