Rambo Posted December 14, 2011 Share Posted December 14, 2011 I'm looking for some advice I just upgraded factory STI 38 Super mags with Grams Spring/Follower kits and Dawson +1 basepads. Following the article by Bob on Brazos website "Slide Lock Back or Not?" I have aquired a modified slide stop and modified the ledge on the follower at a 45 degree angle (similar to the picture). (I modified one follower and didn't modify another...perhaps I didn't file it enough as I have seen inconclusive differences between the two) The mags seem to be functioning flawlessly (with and without filed follower) except when trying to drop an empty mag. Roughly 50% of the time the mag will have to be slightly tugged. Note: This has never happened with factory mags with factory guts. I believe the follower is catching on the slide stop... Is this normal? How far do you file down your followers to prevent this? Or is there a different solution? I suppose...technically speaking I'm probably already in trouble on a stage if I'm dropping an empty mag but it's still disconcerting to know it might not drop free. Thanks in advance!
