Are 1911 mags universal?

Is it OK to leave 1911 mags loaded?

Using the spring (loading and unloading the magazine) frequently will cause it to wear out as well. Some springs may stay loaded for decades and still function, and others might wear out after a much shorter period of time. So just to be safe, the best practice is to rotate the magazines periodically.

How long can you keep a 1911 magazine loaded?

How many rounds can a 1911 hold?

Magazine capacities Standard (not extended) single-stack magazines, pistols based on the 1911 design commonly hold 8 rounds or less. Many modern pistols have adopted the cartridge into double-stacked magazine designs to increase ammo capacity, though this increases the pistol’s handle width.

Is a 1911 better than a Glock?

Glocks can fire tens of thousands of rounds without malfunction or damage, and are more corrosion-resistant than the 1911. It is also less expensive, on average, than the 1911, and fits small-statured shooters better. The 1911 is a classic; the Glock is becoming one.

Does keeping a shotgun loaded ruin the spring?

Does ammo go bad with age?
