Help! I've been offered a deal on some Armalite AR-10 mags that I wish to use in my M-1A. From what I've been told they will work if I change the follower back to the USGI M-14 style follower.

Does anybody know where I can buy about a dozen USGI followers?

I've tried Fulton Armory and some others, but they only sell a kit that includes the spring, follower and floorplate. If I can find cheap followers it will make these worth buying, if not I'll pass.

Any sources, thanks in advance.

They will work as is but won't hold open the bolt on the last shot. However, Sarco Inc. has U.S.G.I. followers. www.sarcoinc.com

I just picked up 10 followers from sarco. All in Excellent + condition, came lightly oiled. 8 were marked B.W. and 2 were marked OM.

4.50 each plus shipping.

Good to hear, I ordered mine on Monday and can't wait to get them. I hope they are as nice as you make them sound. I have the feeling that I'll be expending lots of .308 soon.

I've heard mixed messages about sarco's shipping in a timley manner, but I was very pleased. Took about a week to a week and a half to get them.

Update: I ordered my followers on Monday and I just got them from UPS thursday afternoon. The followers look brand new and I couldn't be happier. In fact there was a new floorplate mixed in with them as well, which i thought was odd since according to Sarco's website they were sold out of followers.

Anywho, I'm happier then a pig in shit. Thanks for your help guys.

I also ordered & received new Followers, springs & floor plates for the M-14 mags from Sarco in new condition and in a timely manor.
You can order LN or New USGI M-14 mag bodies from Elite Firearms for $18.95(If I remember correctly). Mine were New.
Thanks for the tip about followers from Sarco.
Semper Fi!

I have 4 M1A magazines that I'm going to change to AR10. 1 looks new, the other three show age (some rust)$10 each to you and trade for the AR10 Magazines and I'll pay your shipping. Can send you pictures. Or, I'll buy your AR10 followers.
