Sorry Renaldow,but you don't understand it either. Keeping mags fully loaded (per manufacturers/design specs) will not shorten the life of the spring or cause it to malfunction. What will definitely deteriorate your spring is loading/compressing beyond design load. So many on this forum are proud to load 11 or 12 into their mag. If SCCY has used correct design specifications, they have a spring that has a load capacity of 10 rounds. The act of loading more rounds will compress the spring beyond its designated specs, then unloading, either by hand or by firing causes the spring to operate beyond its design. Only time will tell for those folks.

New Sky mags are best loaded with ten 124 grain rounds then let to set for a few days.
For faster compression use 147 gr or higher rounds. :whist:

Go shoot that pistol with the mag that's been loaded since 1942 and see how many rounds come out before the FTFs start. Then reload it and try it again.

Compressed springs take a set over time. There are numerous experiments that show that. Here's a random one where it was only compressed for 14 months.

Own old guns -- and actually shoot them -- and you'll soon find that original magazines in working condition for many models can be difficult to come by, because of this.

I don't care how you keep your mags, but don't expect a 10 cent spring to break the law of physics.
