Do magazine springs lose power when loaded for years?

Do magazine springs lose power when loaded for years?

Old-school wisdom says to store your magazines unloaded when they're not in use to save the springs, or even to not load them to full capacity. Old-school wisdom apparently does not carry a gun every day nor have a home to defend. Internet scientists say that magazine springs are impervious to damage from being loaded for extended periods of time and point to (probably the same) anecdote of a 1911 that was loaded back in nineteen dickety two and still "worked just fine." These same internet scientists insist - knowing that a recoil spring can last 2000-5000 rounds or more - that only the repeated loading and unloading of a magazine is what causes magazine springs to wear out. Never mind that it would take 30,000-75,000 rounds to put 2000-5000 cycles on a fifteen round magazine (if you shoot all the ammo you load) and that round counts in that range could very likely wear out the gun as soon as the magazine spring. Never mind that shooting 30,000+ rounds through one gun with one magazine is probably something approximately 0% of gun owners ever achieve. Is either camp right? I add more data points to a contentious argument in this video.

Gun Magazine Storage: How to Organize Mags

Gun Magazine Storage:  How to Organize Mags

How to easily organize and store gun magazines, including both rifles and pistols. This method is great for long-term storage of both empty and loaded magazines. Makes for easy identification, less noise and shuffling around the mags on top of each other (preserving finish), as well as maintaining oil and lubrication longer for reduced chances of corrosion on any exposed metal parts. **Gun Mag Storage Solutions on Amazon: https://goo.gl/oJqEpd I generally clean my firearm magazines as needed, usually when the fouling (black residues left behind after use) starts to cover the majority of surface area on the magazine follower. Cleaning magazines is extremely easy in most cases. For a demonstration on how to disassemble and clean most magazines correctly, check out my video tutorial below. **Ideas for Storing Firearm Magazines: https://goo.gl/oJqEpd --VIDEO on How To Clean Pistol Magazines: https://youtu.be/gaSzg86tWvA?list=PLzFUxuBF07AZ0OhwlvrBsTS4Fg2XB1yM3 Thanks for Watching, and don’t forget to Like, Share, and Subscribe!
