If it's rusted, you have little to no chance of reviving it.  What brand of master cylinder is it?

This is who I used for my trailer parts.  I called them to confirm I was ordering the right parts online and they were knowledgeable and pleasant to deal with.

If the master is empty and rusted, you have to be suspect of the rest of the brake components. Brake fluid is nasty corrosive once it gets moisture introduced, and that includes moisture from the air. Be sure to check the actuator cylinders at the wheels.
