Looks like a pretty nice powerfeed classic mag with a benchmark double frame, ANS valve back half and boomstick. have you shot it yet?

No not yet will later today when i get air. I am really excited about. Is it better to have a bolt with two different halves on it? Any performance gain in anyway?

Well gun performance wise not really unless you have a REALLY old mag because on some of the old old ones the holes in eatch half of the reg that the air passes through weren't lined up and the valve could suffer from shootdown, a reg back with multiple holes in it fixed this but it's pretty rare to see valves like that today.
There is one advantage to an aftermarket valve half and that is most of them (not sure about the ANS ones) are made of Aluminum instead of the original Stainless steel and that makes the gun noticeably lighter in you hand.

Different halves on the valve body is purely a cosmetic issue.

Oh and let us know what you think of the trigger pull, I've never shot one but I've heard benchys give it a more "long and smooth" pull rather then "short and crisp" like AGD frames.

If you haven't watched them already, I recommend the automag videos on youtube to get troubleshooting down: YouTube - Automag video with Tom Kaye pt1/9

They are old, but Automags live!

I just pulled the bolt out and it has rust all over the spring and the bolt itself. How would I go about cleaning this up?

You can polish or powdercoat it yes, but as it's Stainless steel you can't annodize it.

Wipe it off with some paper towels or a rag first to get any oil or paint residue or anything off, then just gently scrub off the rust with some steel wool.
