Magpul's GEN II Enhanced Magazine Followers in my opinion are the best. They're true anti-tilt.

Those Magpul followers are really nice.

Although honestly, after thousands upon thousands of rounds fired through my service rifle, I've never encountered any problems with the green followers.

But I still like the Magpul followers. :D

You can not change the follower on the 10/30 C products mags because of the modified tabs to limit them to 10rounds. The are not suppose to be removable. If are able to remove that follower, you just converted your 10/30 C products mag into HICaps.

I just got on the Magpul bandwagon this year.
The 2nd gen Magpul follower design is lightyears ahead of green and black military followers.

Your C-Products mags already come with Magpul followers.

Yes you can change it out and still leave it as a 10/30. That annoying little bent in tab is the ONLY thing that makes it a 10/30. Just as long as you work around that little tab you should be all good. With the long legs of the true anti tilt follower it might be a pain to get the part in there.

You would end up destroying that follower. It's also not that easy bending those tabs out.

I know people who have and failed. :) You'll need some type of roller bearing that puts pressure on both inside walls to flatten it out. Or, you can also dremel it out with a drum sander and have a hole on the sides. But then ofcouse, you're comitting a felony. :eek:

Yes, the C PRODUCTS mags have the Magpul follower already. NO need to change them out!
