I have over the years re-built master cylinders as well as wheel cylinders. Just clean them up, hone them out, and replace the rubber cups or O rings etc. I found they did not hold up like mew ones. But then I got to thinking about it....You do take off some metal honing and increase the bore size just a tad. The rubber parts are still standard size not oversized a tad to compensate. I then quit doing it....brakes are just too important to play around with. Even the rebuilt parts. I always buy new parts and I like the name brand stuff like Wagner, etc. It might cost more but it could save your life or somebody elses.
