I wanna get a couple more mags for my AR. The Stag kit comes w/one 30 rd, and I'd like to have a couple more 30 rd mags to START with, hehe.

Question: From what I gather, CProducts makes a good mag, right? AIM Surplus has them w/green followers. Also, from what I gather, the green follower was an improvement to help rounds feed, so are the greenies good enough? Or should I spend a few more $$ to get some CProducts mags w/Magpul followers?? :confused: Am I throwing money "away" for something I won't really need?

The green followers were the ant-snag type & work well. You shouldn't have any problems with them. I can't say enough good things about the amazing MagPul followers (they always stay leveled!), but for what you'd be spending on both separate items, you're might be better off just getting a couple of MagPul PMAGs, as they also have the followers installed and are top-quality, unless you don't like the polymer look.

Bravo company has D&H mags with green followers. These are good quality mags too.

OK I'm gonna sound mean here... but why the hell would you care what the mag looks like so long as it is the best functional value in the AR market today? Hell I wouldn't even care if they were bright friggen pink :) ... and that's only cause I am a huge fan of Krylon :) Running at about $14 a piece, still 5-6 cheaper than the C-Products w/ MPATF installed much less the obscene prices of the HK "Uber badass He Man" steel mags.

Sorry man, I am a well known fan of the PMag's .. but the gaggle of USGI mags in the closet attest to the fact that I don't care what they look like as long as they work.

Well, sorry for pissin' in your Cheerios this morning (relax, just messin' with ya! :D), but I'm actually thinking I'm gonna do this: gonna buy a CProducts w/magpul follower AND a PMag, that way I'll have the two of them and a plain Jane w/green follower, and I'll see how they all do for me. When I find the one I like best, then I'll order more of them. I can always throw that nasty ugly PMag in the fireplace or something, because I'm sure no one on this board would want me to send it to them or anything, hehe!! :mrgreen:

Sounds good. I finally got to shoot some rounds through mine last weekend. Had a few jams here and there. All in all it went well. Broken it down cleaned up it really good and that reduced most of the jam issues. I was shooting reloads. So I switched over to new ammo and the problem went away. The guys I was shooting with said things would get alot better once I got a few hundred rounds run through it. I had very nice groups at 50 yards using iron sights, so I was pleased.

Make sure the bolt carrier is staked properly. Stag has a tendency not to do so well on that. Also, check out this forum as well. http://m4carbine.net/showthread.php?t=7009

I bought my Stag from Grant at G&R Tactical. He is in the M4 forum as well and is a wealth of knowledge concerning Stag Arms. http://www.gandrtactical.com/

USGI Mags with green followers are good mags. Avoid the black follower mags if at all possible.

Depending on where you shop you can get even brand new in the plastic USGI mags for 10 dollars a pop or so. Not bad at all and they function very well.

And you know what? You caught it, you got it! For the sake of good karma, I will do just that! PM me and I will send you a new D&H mag, out of my stash!! Oh in your PM don't forget to attest that you are legal to receive and own the high cap mag (since we all want to be law abiding and all that...).:p

Bah you didn't do it.. fricken users.. waaahhh fix my PC.. waaaaaaaaaah why can't I logon... :)

If you're seriously that interested in knowing how the green followers do, drop me a PM, I could lend you a SA80 mag that has it. Those 4 I have are the last to be converted to the MPATF's.
