I just received 2 20-round pmags from Palmetto State armory and was a little surprised to see that the followers are not anti-tilt. Is that normal? I thought that all Pmags came with anti-tilt followers.
when i push mine down from the front it all goes down level, when i push it from the rear it only tilts a tiny bit. nothing compared to the green USGI followers. i cannot get mine to bind at all like i can with the usgi ones.
The PMAG™ (Polymer MAGazine) is a lightweight 20-round 5.56 NATO, M-16 compatible magazine. This PMAG™ features a straight body and pop-off storage/dust cover that alleviates pressure from the magazine feed lips, allowing for long-term storage of loaded magazines without risk of feed lip creep that often causes malfunction in standard aluminum magazines. PMAG™ utilizes a resilient stainless steel spring for corrosion resistance and a controlled-tilt, self-lubricating follower for increased reliability.
i would say that is a perfect description of what it is.
and to be honest i never noticed any difference between the two until you posted this
When I push on the front of the follower, it goes down but with friction, and when I push on the back the follower binds up completely. I mean there is no reason for pressure to be on the back of the follower anyway so it is not that big of a deal, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't getting the old bait and switch.
After rapidly running the follower up and down a bunch of times the mads do seem smoother.
