I need to replace the mag followers on my Colt Defender Mags. I read that the metal followers will bur the ramp and cause jambs. Anyone know where to find the new non-metal followers? Thanks
i know this is a problem with certain mags, i heard CMC followers come up a bit and smacks the feed ramp.
i replaced one of my stock defender mags with the tripp follower and spring kit.. it turned my 7 round mag into a 6 round mag, and started to have feeding issues, and a stove pipe on the last round in the mag.
i went back to the stock follower and that went away.. maybe the tripp mags themselves are better, but i had no luck using their follower in my defender OEM mags.
the wilson 47's should work fine in the defender, i havnt had a problem with mine yet. though i only got to run a few mags worth through my defender my last range trip out as i was busy with my AR. i plan on going back out with my defender and its new wilson mags asap.
you sure you need to replace the follower? if so contact Colt and see if they will send you a couple.. my two oem defender mags have fed a couple thousand through my defender with no apparent problems, you just might need to order a new spring
