because i keep a loaded mag near my rifle anf in an emergency i may forget to remove the cover. will storing it
loaded put stress on the polymer feed lips? or is it just for dirt, assuming i am in a dessert evironment?

i believe it's officially to alleviate stress on the feed lips, though i've stored pmags full for a long time with no cover with no adverse effects..

unofficially, so you can pop the top and be a badass

oh no not this again...

try a little search on this subforum (go page by page in the Magazine Forum)...

you'll quickly find a LOT of threads on it.

MagPul says don't bother unofficially and verbally from their posts. Documentation, depending on version, says both ways. Folks who have'em are in two opposite camps.
