Default Concluding 18 months magazine spring test

For those who are still wondering about modern magazine springs:


Today I took to the range 4 Gen 2 PMags magazines I had fully loaded w/ 30 rds for 18 months... one and a half years they were hanging on my BO-LBE


No detectable sign of spring memory/weakness.
Last round loaded as well as first round on all 4 magazines.

(Ammo was Xtac in 55gr fired out of LWRC M6A2 as part of updrills)
