Hi,

I was just wondering if I were to load up my mags now ready for tomorrow would this damage the springs If I let them sit overnight fully loaded?

thanks.

No, I've accidently left mine loaded for a few weeks before and they're ok. However they will last longer if you load at the site (which takes 5mins max).
It wont really matter so don't worry. Just don't leave yhem loaded for over a week or so :)

It wont damage them, but like marksmen said it can decrease their life expectancy.

Personally, I wouldn't keep any springs compressed for longer than I have to but that's me.

Shouldn't damage them really, but I wouldn't make a habit of it
Ask me about general tech problems, I'm happy to help most of the time ;) I'm decent with AEGs, but my speciality is snipers, that being AEG, spring and gas. I'm quite good with GBBR systems too, WA especially.

Ask me about your Tanaka/KJW bolt action problems!
Here's a link to my M40 takedown guide, works for M700's too!

I know of people that leave bb's in their mags after every game and those mags are still going. I dont personally do it, I empty my mags at the end of the day, and refill in the morning of the next game.

I probably wouldn't, as said it would eventually decreas spring efficiently, and its just as easy to load with a speed loader or speeed pourer. :)
