Default Mag spring question

Does anyone have any experience with how long a fully loaded (in this case Glock 19) magazine can be stored without problems with the spring weakening. Does the spring ever give out - is it ok just to leave the mags loaded at all times?

Yes, you can fully load you mag without having to worry about the spring weaking. Prolonged compression does not weaken the spring. Constant compression then decompression does.

Hope I helped
