I am sure that this question or topic has been mulled over more than a few times, but I did search for it and came up with nothing.

Will a magpul anti-tilt follower work in a 20 rd. magazine? How about a Magpul ranger plate?

Ranger plates works fine on 20's.

Anti-Tilt follower WON'T FIT.

Umm...How did I get one in mine then?

I'm not taking a poke at you, I just had a 20 rounder and a spare tan follower, so I put it in there. And it works like all the ones in my 30 rounders do.

I agree, just installed 6 of the followers in 20round mags. Friday eve, no problems at all.

Which 20rd. mags? Original design Colt/UI or one of the newer versions released after the end of the ban?

Mine is a bushmaster 20rd that I think came with a LEO m4gery during the ban. Don't know if that matters...

Now I'm curious.

Just to differentiate:

in the CURVED 20 rounders the Magpul follower fits "just as is"?

in the STRAIGHT ( old and NHMTG ) 20 rounders the follower has to be shortened? Front or rear or both? HOW MUCH SHORTENED? No instructions reg 20 rounders with my Magpul follower package ...

Thanks, H

I modified 1 to try in a Colt mag.
I ground it down to the same length in the rear as a factory follower about 5/8in. and the front to slightly longer than factory length about 1/4 in. with a slight taper on the lower corners so you can roll it in under the floorplate retainer (the little spring steel part that goes in the slot on the floorplate on a straight 20) and get it lined up on the ribs of the mag.
It works and is a PIA to get in there.
INMO after all done in a straight 20 you are just as well off with alloy followers or green ones in a straight 20rd. mag.
I found the rear to be critical if long it will bottom out early and not let 20 rds in or make it hard to seat mag in gun when full, not allowing smooth feeding as the rds are jammed tight between follower/floorplate and bolt. So 1/2in. on the rear leg of the follower will giv that little extra clearance needed.YMMV.
