I just got a bunch of green followers from CMMG. I got several from Sierra Supply back a few years ago. The new followers are a darker green than the older ones I have. Anybody noticed a difference in tint? The old ones are a really light lime green......

Yes I did.

I bought some green followers from Mag Man and they're somewhat "tighter" than the DPMS lime green followers I bought elsewhere.

magman's green followers are USGI and appear to be thicker. They do tilt and jam in my 20rd straight mags while the slightly smaller DPMS lime green followers (which are reported to be underspec) pop up each time.

I don't think I'll run into any probs using them in the straight mags but I just wanted all my mags to look "updated"

It took awhile longer to dremel through the dark green followers whereas the lime green followers were easier to cut.

I'll bet the liberal media totally ignores this conspiracy!

I noticed this too. The followers that I got from ComputerGuy are a darker green.

The new "LE/MIL/Export only" mags I got from Green Mountain Gear came with the lime-coloured followers.

The lighter ones seem to be stiffer...

I am not aware that there is a problem with the follower in 20rd USGI mags.

Someone please correct me if I'm misinformed. The black follower issue only applies to 30 round USGI mags (British black followers in the mil 30 rd mags are same as green USGI followers).
