    Could someone explain the difference (if there is one) between the different color followers on AR15 magazines? When I see them for sale, there seems to be an emphasis (?) on the color of the follower. Thanks in advance for your info.

    That color scheme goes for military magazines, a tan follower is the new kid in town. Green should still be ok. Black, take it back (to the armorer).

    However, many of us prefer the Magpul Gen 3 followers in GI mags. I understand with the tan follower the military copied this COTS follower to avoid royalties.
