Oh no, I already got it, was just curious if any others did. I just don't trust plastics in followers.

depends on what its made of. some plastics suffer in extreme heat or cold. some do not have good durability.

all my ar mags and scar17 mags are 90% plastic with only metal springs.

Some the most expensive 1911 mags have plastic followers too. And then there glucks.
Seems like this little trick follower adds a non typical step extra to me.

I think it removes unnecessary distraction.

Extra step, like counting rounds or continuing to pull the trigger after last round?

Extra step? You mean racking locking the slide back? Isn't it a wash seeing as how you'd have to fully rack the slide manually to chamber a round from the next mag anyway?

Sorry I don't see it that way. Just a new gimmick for most. Beside I bought a tcp for several reasons over these limited feature micro's.

No having to set a slide lock manualy, then loose your control over the grip all before releasing the mag. I don't even see it as faster that on a regular lcp.
Buy one , Use a timer to run some drills , Fire one round with the new follower , go thru the mag change and fire one round and then with a stock mag .

Show the video. I have been wrong before !!
