Just clean them with a toothbrush if they get dirty... otherwise good quality magazines will last a lifetime.. oil will only attract dirt.. but use very very lightly if you want to..

Or you could just run a grease laced finger on the spring and the runner.. and you'll be good to go..

Magazines seldom need cleaning unless dropped frequently in mud etc. Disassemble, clean as mentioned above and then wipe down entire body spring and follower with a very slightly oil damped cloth. Too much oil will attract grime as pointed out. You're good to go.

In fact, I think we should put 12 Ga. post in a separate stickied thread as Handgun cleaning regimen in the maintenance section.. It is by far the most informative post on that topic..
