Went to the range Friday with my new mags I just got from Cole's, They are BRW, NIW. Shot 60 rds through one and when finished the follower would not come to the top of the mag, took the mag apart and the spring was broken, would cleaning the inside of the mag before using have prevented this?
Check to see if the spring is bright. Many mags in wrapper are not new, but refinished. If they were refinished without disassembly to remove the spring the parkerizing solution may have attacked the spring and caused rust spots, causing breakage.
