If I am wrong ... happens ... please throw me under the bus as quickly as possible ... I have 15 30 round Pmags, loaded , ready to use as required ... I have a S_ _ T Load of aluminium G.I. 30 round mags with Magpul followers in them ... unloaded ... because the common wisdom is long term loaded storage is a NO NO due to potential feed lip distortion due to pressure from the top cartridge against the aluminium feed lips ... Now ... Pmags have a nifty dust cover that also depresses the top cartridge enough to relieve any pressure on the feed lips and .. Eureka ... long term loaded storage is a GO! I was thinking ... if you load a 30 round aluminium G.I. mag to full capacity ... take a popsickle stick ... cut a piece about 3/4 inch/20 mm long ... round one end ... put a slight concave in the other end ... depress the cartridges ... push the mini pop stick round end first into the mag catch opening until you wedge a cartridge and release pressure at the top ... Eureka ... no feed lip pressure ... long term storage is a GO! ... you have to have a dust cover or the top cartridge(s) will slide out ... you store them in a carrier flat to flat side (one is upside down the other right side up) or in whatever configuration you can work out ... If the S _ _ T is about to hit the fan depress the top cartridges and pull the Mag wedgies and the mags are ready as required ... quicker than loading them up from stripper clips ... keep your Beta C mags or Nordic exrended 48 round doubled maglinked Pmags or just a few 30 round Pmags as immediate need to shoot ammo ... This is not as fast as popping the dust clip from the Pmag ... but it's close ... just saying ... I mean if you have alot of aluminum mags laying about ... I did it ... it works ... am I missing something here or what? Should I have patented my "Feed Lip Relief Mag Catch Well Wedgie" ? Is this completely unnecessary and stupid ??? Anyone with any cogent counterpoint or concurrence please be so kind as to either tell me I am correct of show me why I should be under the Bus ... Thanks in advance ... Wanna kill these ads?
