Ruger AICS pattern mags with weak springs Login/Join 
I recently acquired a Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle in .308
It came with a OEM steel mag produced by Accurate Mag. I also purchased a couple of Ruger polymer mags as they are lighter and half the price.
All 3 mags have the same issue: weak springs (worse in the polymer) and a follower that tilts easily so the rounds nosedive into the very long feed ramp.
All are AICS pattern staggered mags.
Does anyone make a replacement magazine spring for these trypes of mags?
Is there another way to tune them up?
The problem seems less with the first and last rounds. The rounds in the middle seem to have almost no spring tension and just rattle around. All mags are 10 rounds.


Every day, the New York Times carries a motto in a box on its front page. "All the News That's Fit to Print," it says. It's been saying it for decades, day in and day out. I imagine most readers of the canonical sheet have long ceased to notice this bannered and flaunted symbol of its mental furniture. I myself check every day to make sure that the bright, smug, pompous, idiotic claim is still there. Then I check to make sure that it still irritates me. If I can still exclaim, under my breath, why do they insult me and what do they take me for and what the hell is it supposed to mean unless it's as obviously complacent and conceited and censorious as it seems to be, then at least I know I still have a pulse. You may wish to choose a more rigorous mental workout but I credit this daily infusion of annoyance with extending my lifespan. -Christopher Hitchens
