    20 Round GI Mags w/Magpul followers

    I've seen hiccups with MP 20 mags. I believe it is because the rear leg is short - giving a 'nose up'. (Same ammo - two different weapons). Do the MP followers in the 20 round GI mags have 2 long legs - unlike the MP followers in the MP mags?

    There are no MP followers made for 20 round USGI mags. The followers need to tilt just a bit to accommodate the slight taper of the cartridge, when used in the straight body mag.

    The PMAG20 is a pretty well known "risk factor" for reliability. Lots of instances of malfunctions, particularly with failures to lock back on an empty.

    The USGI20 is, in my opinion, the most reliable magazine you can buy when outfitted with a standard black or aluminum follower. Edit to add: A Magpul follower will not fit a USGI20 properly.

    If you want a 30 round magazine, get a USGI30 and put a MagPul or similar follower in it (I like the CMMG SSAT followers.). Or, get a PMag30.

    If you want a 20 round magazine, get a USGI with aluminum or black plastic follower.

    Lancer L5 Advanced Warfighter Magazines, I love mine. The way to go for 20 round magazines.
