Default Random question about rifle magazine springs

Was going through some old gun stuff and found a couple rifle mags that were never assembled. Still in the bag as they were sent from the distributor, the springs were folded over to decrease space and fit in the plastic bag. I never gave it any thought then, but now, a few years later, is there any harm to the springs by leaving them that way? I didn't open the bags to see if they were permanently bent. My gut tells me they are fine, but what if I leave them like that for several more years? What do you guys think?

They're fine.
Oppressors can tyrannize only when they achieve a standing army, an enslaved press, and a disarmed populace. -- James Madison

The Constitution shall never be construed to authorize Congress to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens, from keeping their own arms. -- Samuel Adams, Debates and Proceedings in the Convention of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, 86-87 (Pearce and Hale, eds., Boston, 1850)
