My impression from arfcom is that every C-Products transaction involves at least 3 round trips of replacing defective items, 20 emails to C-Products that go unanswered, minimum of 2 threads on arfcom (which are immediately flooded with posts saying "Larry will make it right") and approximately 2 months from the time the original order was filled until all the items purchased are functional.

just emailed CP and posted on arfcom :rofl:

it was only 30 bucks so it won't kill me but i'd rather not have to spend hours modifying all of these followers to get them to work since copes' site said that they fit all ar mags...

i just threw all 30 of them away. apparently they're for CP's SS mags and copes' site fails to mention that. :squint:

now i'm in search of some orange magpul followers. i can't seem to find them since apparently the gen III only came in yellow or green :squint:

I ordered from cproducts once. That was enough.

i bought some of your anti-tilt followers from cope's and i have a question

are they supposed to work in all ar mags?

i have some used usgi mags i bought and am trying to replace the followers
in but they simply don't fit. i can get them into the bottom but they do
not move up and down the mag. i compare the usgi followers to the ones i
got and the orange ones are a good 1/16" or maybe 1/8" wider at the front
and back. ive taken one and shaved down a good bit on the legs and it still
won't move freely.

any suggestions? are they supposed to be fitted before installing?

Did you get the followers for aluminum magazines? or stainless? The stainless are longer.

Stainless apparently. They have ss on them. Unfortunately there was no differentiation on copes' website. I only noticed that after I took to a bunch of them to get them to work. No worries. Do you sell the orange ones for aluminum mags?

Give me your address and how many you need and I will take care of it for you.
:cool:

I'll report back if/when I get them. I told them I need 30 (thats how many I bought from cope's) but then I emailed 'em back and said I wanted 40 and would pay the difference. :o

We'll see. I only need 30 of them but told him I was willing to pay for another 10 from them in case I run across some more USGI mags but he said he'd give me all 40 no charge. :dunno:
