Are you bitching about something that happens 4 years ago?
I do know 11Bs are using PMags in combat. Its not just private contractors. PMags do have a NSN.
Manufacturers are equipping their mags w/ Magpul followers because people are demanding them because they are proven to be better/ more reliable.
Don't mean to argue but it sounds like you're trying to take a very isolated incident and trying to portray it as a daily occurrence at a highly respected manufacturers facility. I don't think you'll get to far around here or anywhere else.
Maybe you just missed it I said it was four years ago the MAGPUL Mags did not work in my S&W AR15T and it was not just S&W that they did not fit in all the time. Today I don't read of this problem anymore.
Mr. Drake and I had a major disagreement about the need for metal feed lips. Since MAGPUL-P Mags don't have metal feed lips, I can understand Drake defending that they are unneeded. But a lot of people besides me think they are a real important item.
As for the MAGPUL followers being more reliable and people demanding them, it's news to me. There is a lot more involved with a rifle that has problems with feeding Ammo. it's not always because of the Mags follower.
IMHO MAGPUL does a lot of powerful marketing about their non tilting followers.
I have hundreds of AR Mags all kinds and none have had follower problems. People just picked up on forum threads about the green metal followers being bad, then all green follower were now suspect.
MAGPUL just used it to promote their followers, people buy them because other people say they are better more reliable.
I sure have not noticed a problem with the old green followers.
On another subject:
Now I have seen a lot of our GIs picking up AKs after a fire fight, but I have never found a Taliban with and AR. Now this tells this guy something.
