Black, numerous times while doing full auto mag dumps.

Green a couple times doing 10-15rd full auto bursts.

Have only used Magpuls a couple range trips. No issues yet/at all.

Have personally had a black tilt...saw a green tilt while using miles on a GAU (full auto) with blanks. While this may not be a serious concern.....it did tilt, and caused a jam, which was annoying and showed what that kind of annoyance can do.

The one I had was with a green follower.

only AR mag I have ever seen jam was a USA brand POS. I think it actually had an "improved" green follower too.

Non of my black or green followers tilt while firing.

A lot of my green followers in my new teflon finished D&H mags would tilt and bind when I was replacing them with the Magpul followers.

I usually just push the ends of the green followers and they tilt, Magpul followers don't tilt in my limited experience with them.

Numerous black follower problems, a handful of green follower problems, and none with the Magpul.

Granted, the Magpul haven't been out or used anywhere near as much as the black and green followers, but the design difference is pretty obvious.

never had a problem with my mags (90% still have the black follower)

Have enough bad experiences with black followers tilting in USGI mags that I would never trust them. Never have had any problems with standard green followers.

I've only seen mag followers tilt when people stab junk down in the mag. Never had one tilt during firing.
