Looking for the best way to store AR-15 magazines and ammunition? There are a number of different debates about the best way to handle ammunition for an AR-15. However, this article will describe the way to use the 222972 magazine rack in New York to help optimize magazine storage.
Pick the Magazine
The first decision an AR-15 owner needs to make is whether they prefer polymer or metal magazines. There are pros and cons of both types of magazines, and the right choice depends on an individual’s needs.
Metal magazines have a reputation as being sturdier. They are less likely to crack or break, which means that they often have a longer life span. Also, if they are dropped, they are less likely to be dangerous than a polymer magazine. However, they are heavier and more expensive.
Polymer magazines are lighter and more affordable than metal magazines. However, they are more prone to breaking, especially where they load or feed.
Loaded or Unloaded
Another important decision is whether to store magazines loaded or unloaded. This issue focuses on the springs and whether it is bad for magazine springs to be under constant pressure. There is some debate about whether it causes more wear and tear to load and unload the magazines or to have the springs under constant pressure, but the consensus seems to be that constantly being loaded to full capacity probably stresses the springs more than occasional loading and unloading.
Of course, the other part of the debate focuses on readiness. Many people keep weapons for personal safety. Not having any loaded magazines available renders a gun useless for personal protection.
Many people compromise. They keep some magazines loaded and other unloaded and rotate these magazines regularly. Also, rather than loading a magazine to full capacity, they will ease some of the tension on the springs by loading it to 2 or 3 rounds under capacity.
