One of my Norinco SKSs has a bent follower arm - it'll only load 6 or 7 rounds - the gun showed me that my metal bending skills are terrible, and rather than just buy another magazine, I'd like to keep the numbers-matching magazine with the gun working as it should.  A local gunsmith has advised against any further attempts at bending the arm, due to potentially damaging the metal enough so that it fails \ breaks.  I can find complete magazines ($65 and up), I can find followers, but no luck so far on finding just the arm - I've looked at Sarco and Numrich and BuyMilSurp - no luck so far.  Before I buy a magazine assembly to get just the follower, I thought I'd ask here if anyone has a follower in their pieces and parts collection.  FWIW, the Numrich site shows that the follower and follower assembly is common to at least the following SKSs - Type 45, Type 56, and Type 59/66.  Anyone have a follower or follower assembly that they'd be willing to sell me?  I can pay ya in cash, or 7.62x39 ammo.

PM me your info.  I have a complete magazine assembly I took off a norinco years ago that I don't intend to put back on.  It is yours if you want it.
