I got a 3 pack of these fancy mag followers from BROWNELLS recently. They seem to be made of a space age polymer or something!

Not sure if they do anything good, but they don't seem to do any harm. Pics of them and the military green followers below incase anyone is interested...

aren't they magpul followers?
Link Posted: 12/12/2006 11:08:37 AM EST
They are Magpul followers and they are wonderful. Take a pen or pencil and push down on the front of the green GI follower and then try it on the Magpuls. They don't nosedive like other followers. I think you will really like them.

... How much did they cost? 87 bucks?

Mark, your antics never get old and always make me laugh. It's a shame however that you have nothing else better to do with your time. Pick up a hobbie, like measuring the depth of your ear hole with a sharp pencil.

I've got 6 magpuls, 3 greens, and 2 HK mags, I have never had a problem with any of them.

I have to credit MarkM with actully trying the followers. Thanks for giving them a chance.
Link Posted: 12/12/2006 3:53:33 PM EST
So markm; what are you going to try next? Maybe those KNS anti-rotation pins? Or maybe a Magpul winter trigger guard?
Link Posted: 12/12/2006 3:56:01 PM EST
Whats the hole in the middle of the follower for? Reduced weight?

You'll have to credit MUDBUG for it. He had them in his mags, and before I could catch myself I exclaimed.. "These things REALLY WORK!"

Then in class he called me "about the most UN-gear-Queer" out there.

So, you're a different kind of queer?

markm,

When I load the mags with magpul followers the first round holds tight the second rattles the third round hold tight and so on. Are your like that?

The hole is so we can mold the hole for the spring rather than drill it out or have a complicated slide.

No. I only bought a 3 pack. But none of my mags did that. I've had Glock mags that did that, but no AR mags.

Is one of the feedlips bent by chance?

Markm. I am not so surprised that you have Magpul followers.

I am surprised that you have those mag connectors though....

Those things are pretty nice. Definitely the most solid Mag Coupler out there. MAG-GRIP, from Rainierarms.com.

how many times do they have to redesign the followers until they get it right ?

So, what's the deal with the milk jug?
If the rifle goes K-B, to assist in collecting blown rounds from the mag?
Link Posted: 12/14/2006 9:16:47 AM EST
It's a joke. It stems from Lumpy196's gripe with WOMEN who throw the empty milk jug into the kitchen trash and essentially fill the damned trash can with air.

I had forgotten about the M-plates' backstory.

Thanks Markm, I love seeing that pic. You never cease to amaze. BTW my tard of a

roommate always throws the milk jugs in the trash, I might have to put them to good

use...but then again I wouldn't want to infringe on your patent.
