I picked up some 30rd mags at last show in Cobb...they came with the green followers...i bought some of the orange non tilt magnapull followers from B&B in Roswell....took mag apart and I cant get the followers to work....they dont seem to fit right...jam up....am I doing something wrong? Did I need to change springs also??

Can you take some pics?  If so we might be able to handle this on the board.

So, you get that far, right?  But the problem is the top of the mag near the feedlips is a little to tight and the follower starts to get stuck there.  I'm guessing (based on experience), but does that sum up the problem?

Yes sir preatty much...about 1/4 way from the top of mag it will wana hang up..if u push it down it stays down, but it u bump it just barley with like a screwdriver it pops back up....I was thinking of sanding the flat spots on the sides a lil to see if it was just a lil extra plastic on there....

What do  u think sir

The mags that gave me problems were my most beat-to-hell USGI mags.  I'm sure they were stepped on at least a few times before I got them.  hug.gif

They are just USGI issue...i havent ran them threw yet...the mag I got with my rifle had a magpul anti tilt...just thought id go ahead and swap them out...lol i might just leave well enough alone
