    A light oiling should do the trick. Be sure not to soak them, just a light coating.

    As carver said but be sure to NOT use a penetrating oil. It can ruin primers.

    Correct.. its a stamped spring steel strap that holds.. in this case 10 rounds,.. when placed above the opened breach (which exposes the "box magazine" ) it fits into a groove cut in the bolt carrier.. allowing you to rapidly push (10) rounds down into the box magazine... Ill post a pic tomorrow afternoon... after work.
