Anybody know how well the aluminum HK91/G3 mags hold up to being left loaded for long periods? I seem to recall reading someplace that the feed lips on the aluminum mags (or maybe it was AR mags?) would deform slightly if they were left loaded for long periods.

I have some that stay loaded between range trips, never had any problems with it.

I could see it happening I guess, the metal is pretty thin.

At 3 bucks each it doesn't matter much to me I guess :)

It isn't the cost so much as the irritation factor if I got out to the range and the mags didn't work and then having to unload/reload them.

I would like to know this as well. I have a small duffel bag somewhere with nothing but loaded G3 mags in it.

Think the point some people miss with mags is What happens when you NEED them to work and you have a $3 mag in there? FOOD for thought ;)
