>>28462603 no its not fuddlore, stress amplitude cycles is relevant for fatigue failure, constant compression is relevant for creep, material properties change when constantly stressed...spring constants weaken when springs are constantly compressed....faggot
Because this is relevant, I'm a Deputy Sheriff. My agency issues Glock 21's.
My duty mags stay fully loaded 24/7, the only time they are unloaded is once a year when I shoot the ammo in them to qualify and reload them afterward. The springs are almost as tight as they were brand new 4 years ago, and the last round is still a snug fit.
On the other hand, when we practice, we use range mags that stay at the range. These are never left loaded and are used multiple times weekly for shooting. These mags have noticeably weaker springs than my constantly loaded duty mags, and have had their springs replaced within the last 2 years.
>>28462629 Spring creep happens at such a low rate, even lower as more and more time passes, that constant compression doesn't make nearly as much of a difference as compression cycles do. >>28462587 For firearms spring creep is hardly noticeably on the function. It's much more noticeable and an actual factor for airshit.
