Wearing out the mag spring??

2076 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  K
I keep a mag loaded for home defense and was wondering if this will kill my mag spring and make it malfunction when I need it the most?? Does anyone know if this will wear out the spring or have any suggestions as to what I should be doing instead?? Thanks....

cycling of the action?? I'm not talking about the recoil spring, I mean the spring in the magazine. the magazine spring... I'm just thinking that having the spring compressed when the mag is always full might wear out the spring over time???? no??
thanks, that is the article I was looking for. thanks for putting my mind at ease!!
Thanks rjhauser, that is an excellent article!
I gotta agree w/ everyone else. From my experience, mag springs get wore out from being used, loaded, unloaded, compressed, uncompressed.

Ive had partners at work that had their mags sit for years and not use them and they shot fine.
