The reliability of most firearms is contingent upon many factors, not the least of which is the requirement to only use factory magazines. Glock, HK, S&W, etc. They all only guarantee weapon performance with factory mags. The only exception is with 1911 mags, in which case Wilson Combat, Springfield Armory and STI mags seem to among the best ( I love my Wilsons).
Cool. I read/heard something about spring fatigue back in the day and not having fully loaded mags sitting around too long so that's how I picked up that habit.

I'm all 1911 so I'll take a look at the Wilsons.
