Default glock 19 magazine

Is it OK to leave your magazine loaded for long periods of time?

Yes its fine. Constantly working the spring is what wears it out.

There was some company, can't remember who, a gun maker or magazine maker, who did a long term test. Had left a mag loaded for something like 30-50 years. Functioned flawlessly. Wish I could give you details...

spring set can occure on lighter springs commonly found in high cap mags, its less likely to occure in heavier gauge springs found in 7 and 8 round mags found in 1911s though, read about it if you would like at www.gunsprings.com/faq

After my dad passed I found a 1911 mag that I had personally loaded 12 years earlier, still sitting on the shelf where I'd placed it. Slapped in my colt and it worked just fine.

Tack
