I have a couple and one is 9 years old. All have been stored with hammer in cocked position and only had 1 issue. After 104k cycles one of the legs snapped.

Springs fail due to cycles and use.

I store my 15-22 including all my ARs with the hammer down. For me, it's more about a routine discipline than any concern about springs. An AR positioned for self defense is another matter. It would be kept loaded with safety engaged (cocked).

I put a plastic wall anchor in the chamber and pull the trigger.
