Will they make functioning more reliable?
I've been getting bolt-over-bullet fails to feed in some of my 20's so I ordered some Wolffe springs. Now I'm thinking that maybe replacing the aluminum followers would help. Will the greenies work?

I doubt that the green followers would make any difference. IIRC you can only get 19 rds in a 20 rounder with a green follower. The green follower was designed for the curved 30rd mag. With a straight mag, the metal one should work just fine.

The green followers for the 20 rounders don't have the large leg, underside in the middle.

I tried one and now it only holds 19.

So... just replacing the springs with the Wolffe +10% should solve my problem?

the factory followers from any USGI 20 rounder will work flawlessly unless something is broken. Otherwise, your wasting your money.
