My G21 sits on my nightstand and my 11-87P sits in the closet nearby, both always ready to go. What is the life-expectancy of a fully compressed shotgun mag spring? Should I replace it once a year or unload the shotgun once and awhile to let it stretch?

Thanks.

I keep spare springs (Choate, extra power) for each, and try to remember to change them out every now and then. Then again, I left the original spring in an Ithaca for many years fully loaded, and it functioned fine.

Let it stretch every 87 days!
