I have always wondered that too. I leave both of my magazines full. Has anyone every seen a speed loader available like the M16 has?
yes generally, but if you keep something compressed for extremely long periods of time its form will deteriorate.madecov said:Generally
Leaving a magazine loaded has no effect on springs. It's when you constantly load and unload a magazine that springs get fatigued. Leaving the magazine either fully loaded (spring compressed) or unloaded (uncompressed) has no effect.
springs are designed to provide energy. when they are at rest they are fine.
