I'll have to disagree with ya a bit on that one Lefty, temperature cycling can affect a springs tensile strength quite a bit when under tension. The temps. usually have to be pretty extreme, but if the spring isn't tempered properely, or is of inadequate dia. for the application, it will lose tension if subjected to large temp. extremes, ie: if a loaded weapon is left in a car in extreme heat or cold. Good springs will not normally be affected much, but lower quality springs can lose a lot of tension. Vibration while under tension can also affect spring the spring memory.mooseman is correct, you can leave that magazine loaded for 50yrs and it will still function perfectly. cycling a spring is what causes them to loose tension.
don't mix up .357 sig and .357 magnum, they are differentI probably would have never known that....thanks man !
so a pretty good buy then I guess ? I almost got a Taurus 357 revolver, bcause I always thought the revolvers were more dependable...with less moving parts and all....
Damn strait, nomatter what anyone says they last the longest and are the most reliable(of autos).If your Mag springs get a little weak,you can always find new ones at gun shows,and they are inexpensive! Good luck with your G22 ,I've been the proud owner of a G23 for 10+ years,and have fired somewhere around 5 to 6 thousand rounds through mine ,and never had a malfunction,IMO they are the finest Auto's ever made!
I'll have to disagree with you on that, if you check The Gun Zone, they have several articals on catastrofic failures mostly due to the lack of support of the case under the feed ramp. as for logevity there are 90 year old colt 1911's that still have all there original parts and function just like the day they were first issued. now I agree glocks are a fine weapon but they are not with out there quircks, but as for reliabilty and longevity the colt 1911 gets my vote, and hopefully one day a place in my gun safe.Damn strait, nomatter what anyone says they last the longest and are the most reliable(of autos).
