If you carry the same gun every day do you rotate mags?
if you do rotate, how long have you been rotating you stock golck mags without having 2 change the spring?

If you dont rotate them and they are full all the time how long do you think the springs will last?

mag springs wear out the quickest from constant compression/decompression when they're used a lot, rather than from being fully loaded for extended periods. there's been 1911 mags fully loaded found from WWII that functioned fine.

i've kept my glock mags fully loaded (including a 33 rounder) for several years and never had a malfunction. i used them at the range, of course, and would reload them after each ranger session. i keep all of them fully loaded 24/7. glock springs are some of the best in the world.

Deja Vu! That's the same reply you made to my post on that question in August! Cut and paste? :cool:

Only unload mags at the range. That in itself will make them last longer

thanks guys. it is hard to beleve but if that is what you all think than.....must be true.It is just hard to beleve that a spring under tention will last longer than one that is rotated, like you r giving it a break or somthing when you unload it.

thanks for the help.
