With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

What kind of magazines are they? If they are from Magpul then they are meant to be dry and used as such. WD-40 is absolutely the worst thing you could ever use. All of my duty and training mags I use dry and will dissamble and clean monthly depending on how offer they see the range.

with all steel mags you can put a drop or two of oil on the spring and run it from the top to bottom with your fingertips. Like John said, if they're polymer, clean off the packing grease and leave 'em alone.

Then go out and give them hell.
thank you, thank you!

I do not EVER put a lubricant of any kind on a magazine spring. It will draw dust, dirt and other contaminants in the most critical part of the magazine.

Hahaha. Geeze I wish. I have a buddy at lance that hooked me up with some mags as well which are freakin great. Magpul have a great system for their mags and all their other accessory stuff is really well built and is sturdy for everything from a duty gun like mine and an everyday gun. I just like the setup and research what I use before getting anything.
