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.
Thanks for your response.
You're welcome. Here to help.
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...
Mag not clip
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
i keep my mags loaded but i also have mags that are new in the box that i do not use at all.but i do rotated the mags i use for range and selfdefense
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.
they op asked about g19 mags though which have a lighter spring gauge they typically hold 15 rounds unless you live in ca then its ten.now granted it may take years to happen it can.
