I have several M14 mags of various quality and they tilt. Wouldn't no-tilt be better? I was wondering why Magpul has not come up with this one. So I thought I would initiate some marketing research.

The m14 mag is a proven design. I feel you want a solution to a problem that does not exist.

You're not using USGI mags, are you?

The mighty M-14 is an ancient beast of Iron and Wood. Using plastic would be a blasphemey.

It doesn't seem necesary. Anti-tilt followers were developed to avoid binding in curved magazines from what I've read.

Absolutely agree.It is not an issue.

In USGI mags I think this IS a non-issue. BUT, in the Taiwan mags I believe they would be a plus. I contacted Magpul on this and got no response. If available, I would put them in all my non USGI mags.

I also and both USGI and non-USGI. So that is why I asked.

No, never had a problem with my mags - I only use USGI.

What I WOULD like to see them make is RangerTab floorplates - much lower drag coefficient than regular MagPuls. I really like them on my AR mags.

FWIW even my Taiwan mags don't really tilt... But I'd give a MagPul follower a look anyway.

Magpul has to finish the AR10 follower first then they can start on something else...
