At risk of pushing this thread even further off track, the only mag failure I ever had was one that checked good in the morning but was dead on the next run up that afternoon. I donít recall precisely, but it was somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 hours since overhaul when it failed. Only advisory or not, if I was running two mags Iíd keep at least one under the 500-hour recommendation.
