    Is there any reason why I couldn't run a couple of 1911 mags in an ultrasonic cleaner filled with trichloroethelene? The mags seem to be all metal and I'd never put anything remotely resembling plastic in trichloro. They're pretty dirty. After cleaning, do you lube them at all?

    I usually use dry lube or graphite to lube magazines.

    I would disassemble the mags and leave the plastic parts (base plates or followers) out.

    Agreed, hence the question. The mags look like they are completely metal and after googling them, I feel pretty confident about it.

    Robert try some dish soap or laundry soap 1st. It's handy, won't take much time and you may be surprised with the results.
