Does anyone know a source for BHP magazine followers? I have some KRD mags that the metal followers bind up in. I found that if I use the followers from my factory mags they work fine. Ive tried Brownells & Midway with no luck. I have found out that Beretta followers work but they wont lock the slide back when empty.

Have you tried spraying the followers with Norrells or some kind of moly coat to help keep them from binding?

Also, you could contact Browning directly and have them send you factory followers.

The follower slides up and down freely. It tilts to either side when loaded and hangs up about halfway through the magazine. The bottom of the metal follower is not as wide as the molded plastic followers that Ive tried. So far all the hi cap 9MM followers Ive tried have worked but only the Browning follower will lock the slide back when empty. Browning does not list individual mag parts in their parts guide.

I don't know too much about Browning as I just recently purchased my first Browning firearm this weekend but I can tell you that I shoot a Beretta 92 a lot and I've contacted Beretta several times for parts that weren't listed in their parts guide or on their website. I know Browning has to make extra mag followers. I would imagine if you gave them a call or email their service department they could let you know how to obtain them.

I faxed their parts dept, havent heard back from them yet.

Finding BHP followers is a dead end road. Browning or Meg-Gar will not sell you followers. Two years ago I did find followers from a midwest distributor but they are since dried up. Cost was $9.95 per follower. Try www.hipowersandhandguns.com forums from time to time and you may get lucky.
