    Glock 19 magazine

    I've read some posts about how long to keep ammo, but haven't been able to find anything about magazines. How long can a magazine stay loaded before the spring becomes to ineffective and needs to be replaced?

    Thanks,
    Rich

    Loading and unloading causes more wear than it sitting loaded. Glock mags are so cheap you can buy new ones right now for around $17 online. Glock sells replacement parts, however, so you can swap the spring if it makes you nervous. I'd buy a few spares now, tho, they are at a good price. http://www.copesdist.com/glock.htm

    I have two Glock mags that have been loaded for over 10 years and they only release of tension they get is my annual qualifications I do for personal weapons (I shoot off my old carry ammo then). Now this pistol is techniqually my wifes pistol but it is the one I use for IDPA when I'm shooting Stock Service (either that or my issued Sig). Never a hickup yet.

    Hoping you could give me some advice. I've only been shooting about 6 months, and did my second IDPA this eveing. I noticed the guys with other manufactures were able to eject the magazine a lot faster then my g19. is there anything I can or should do to make the mags eject faster / smother?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rich

    Well I thought I made a post but I guess it didnt go through.

    Rich...the only mods I have done to my Glock 19 is to have a Glock armorer put an extended magazine release and a extended slide release put in. As for quicker, its lots and lots of practice and sure pressure on the magazine release. The extended release really does help and it does not change the classification you shoot in.

    Good luck and have fun.
