Well? How many rounds do you guys put through your mags before you change the springs?



Also, has anyone noticed that there seems to be a bit of differences in spring strength from magazine to magazine? I read about people saying it was hard to get the 15th round in and I thought they were nuts or extraordinary weak in the fingers, then I ordered 3 more magazines. Yep, suffice to say these suckers are stiff! Could it be an issue?



Also, kind of oddball question, but if you own high cap mags and another capacity ban comes into effect, can you buy new springs/followers for your high cap mags or are they just trash when they become worn out? I'm kinda nervous with the political climate going the way it is...

With the modern steels in use now the magazine springs are supposed to be good for many, many years, a lifetime of use, they may weaken somewhat, but not enough to seriously erode function. Just look at all the AR magazines from the Viet Nam era that are still on the market and work just fine.
