So I need a couple of 30rd Pmag followers
No one sells them seperate.
I call Magpul and I am told they will not sell replacement parts, Period,
and that they can not because they do not have parts, that they receive the mags complete, so they do not have parts.
I thought they made their own mags, apparently they are made by another company and sold by Magpul.
I persist over phone calls and emails.
Finally I get a tech that says he will sell me a couple followers, Great.
He then asks me what state I'm in, I reply California, he says Nope
"We can not sell you any thing" Period ! :eek: to do with mags.
No mags no parts of any kind. Proceeds to tell me it is california law, that no
hi-cap post ban mag parts of any kind can be sold to California :facepalm:
I just love the uninformed trying to tell me my states laws :mad:
I then inform him that nearly every firearms store around me has their
20-30 round mag kits and parts for sale. He tells me he has no idea how they could have got them, that they do not sell to anyone in California but
Law Enforcement :rolleyes:

Go to the Vallejo gun show next week - there's a guy who has them.
3 for $9 - he's the one with the small booth with the black metal mesh all over it.
I bought a few packs of them from him in Stockton.

:facepalm:

Those are for metal GI mags, I believe the OP is looking for a follower replacement for his PMAG. The replacement you linked will not fit in a PMAG.

To the OP: I came across the same problem before... the simple solution is... buy another mag. It's simply not worth the aggravation over $10. Life is too short. :)

Maybe you can post an ad in WTB. Someone may have a couple extras for you.

Actually in this case Google does nothing.
I'm not looking for GI mag followers, I'm looking for Pmag followers

Just buy a complete mag parts kit and have spare parts. Thread closed!

Not looking to spend $60 to have extra parts laying around

I did about 2 months ago, but no luck

Here's a novel idea...

Stop buying Magpul products, or Stop blaming Magpul for the environment of the State you live in.

I had a similar problem when I needed a spare screw for a mbus, they never responded to any emails.

No ones blaming Magpul for the as you call it "the environment of the state I live in".
I'm blaming them for not supporting their products and trying to tell me the laws of the state I live in.
It is not illegal to own so called hi-cap mag parts or to ship them to California.
Magpul just refuses to because they are uninformed.

I like Magpul products, just disappointed with their readyness to read into the law things that don't exist
