9 of my mags were bought from C Products. very nice mag and no problems. 8 of the 9 are orange with the magpul logo on them. One of them is simply orange and "5.56" on it. I am going to replace my green follower mags with 3rd gen magpul mags, and was wondering if it is really worth it to replace the gen 2 followers with gen 3 ones.

the answer is "NO" G2 and G3 is function the same..Green follower works fine too..but if it makes you feel good on swapping..go head w/ the G3 follower for the green..but not needed..

I use gen 1 followers and I don't have a need to upgrade.
When I buy new mags from now on, they will have the latest version

The main difference I've noticed is the Gen III followers are "slicker" and have the rough edges around the top removed compared to the Gen II followers.

Another no answer here. Not enough difference to mess with them.
