    Mini-14 Mags stored for over a year

    Long story short, I loaded up some mags around March of 2020. Approximately 12 factory, 10 round, ruger mini-14 mags. I decided to got out and sight in a rifle. The mags still feed ok, but about 8-9 lacked the spring power to actuate the bolt hold open. I opened them up, and yes, the spring...

    Okay gents... I have a 20" upper which is beautifully light weight with a nice fluted barrel and all that jazz. Shoots like a dream with irons, but I always feel an optic unlocks all the true potential. This optic will go in a Larue qd mount. So, that being said I am at a loss. I have an 18...
