Re: AK-47 steel mags won't work
Keeping magazines loaded will not weaken the spring. Spring steel fatigues through useage, not being kept loaded.
Stay away from the Korean magazines, they are well known for problems. I generally buy European steel mags for my Saiga and have had no problems at all with them. While not a big fan of the polymer ones, the Tapco ones seem to work well, I have a couple of ten round ones to use while hunting that have given me zero problems as well.
