Anyone know who the primary contractor is for USGI green anti-tilt magazine followers (contact info)?

I ask, because I am trying to find out is the slight curve seen in the front legs of recent followers is a design change, or if it is a production flaw that might cause problems.

If I find out the answer, I will let everyone know.

Thanks.

Well, I know DPMS makes them (or has the contracted out).

I do know for a fact that Colt had NYPRO Industries make theirs for them. I know that because those are the ones I was selling.

I tried to get Nypro to make me some followers, but I figure it would take a long time to get rid of a few million dollars in green followers, lol...

ComputerGuy, DPMS does indeed contract them out.

I spoke to them today by phone, and they told me that they were not aware of any changes to the follower design.
I was apparently the first person to inform them of the curved front leg seen on some followers.

I asked if they could provide me with contact info for the company that makes the followers, and they declined.

So the search goes on...

No one in the great AR15.com brain trust has an answer to this question?

Say it ain't so!

Yes, I did. Nypro Industries produced them for Colt.

ComputerGuy, your answer implies that Nypro previously made them (as in past tense / not the current contractor), and that even then, they only produced them for Colt.

So my question still stands... who is the current primary contractor for USGI green anti-tilt magazine followers?

Nypro may still produce them, and I dont know if it's only for Colt.
