Preferably Metalform, but I'm open to suggestion (or whatever's available). I've only seen the 10-round C-Products mags, but I'd rather have a little more to hang on to for mag changes.

Any ideas? Links?

ProMag makes a polymer version in 32 rounders. You'll get lots of opinions on promags, most of them negative.

I have one of those, blocked to 10. It's.. not very good.

Metalform are the best..I heard colt swtched to c-products.(rumor?)..or use Uzi mags and cut the notch in them, good mags, well made but they won't hold the bolt open on the last round
Look on youtube for how they are modifie to fit the AR

Is there some place I could just buy the C-Products followers? I have Uzi mags (for my Uzi, natch ;)), but I'd like the bolt hold-open.

Maybe you can email Magpul to see something is in the works!

Changing the follower won't make the Uzi mags hold the bolt open..Uzi mags don't have the rib on the back side / spine to allow for a metalform type follower.

Try 44mag.com the will ship standard mags (1.00 per mag disassembly ) and have 10 rnd ones

The parts are not interchangeable.Uzi follower will not fit cp products or promag and metalform.They all are off a little bit.You have to modify the follower.I use promag and Uzi modified mags with no problems.The Ar 9mm carbine like hot loads the best.

I have an Uzi too, so I'd love to use the mags interchangeably. Bolt hold-open is not a really big deal to me. Where could I find Uzi rebuild kits? I have some now, but I can't remember where I got them, and all the usual suspects (Solar, Jabtac, CALegal, 44mag) don't seem to have them.

Not cheap, I've seen surplus magazines go for 6.99

But they will break down the magazine for extra $1
