Great improvment!

by -

Although I haven't actually used them at the range yet, they seem to fit and function well in my two Korean tanker mags and one Romanian 30 rounder. As stated in another comment, they will not fit in Thermold mags.

Update Old Magazines

by -

Had some used metal magazines I bought at a gun show<br>Who followers were sticking.I-replaced them with the<br>weapontech and they operated like new.I ordered <br>some more,great item.

What a miraculous invetions!

These are wonderful and so easy to install even a retired old guy like me could do it! Absolutely will not work with Magpul PMags, they have to much int he way inside. However, with my other mag it was super. Locked and open as they said it would! Now I just have to be careful NOT to order Magpul PMags (not as easy as it looks.) DO have some supposed on order from another competitor, that was a mistake. WIll order from Primary Arms next time. Great company!!!!

Oh yeah, that's the stuff!

I had the idea to make something like this not long after I found out about Yugoslavian bolt hold open magazines but it never went anywhere. Glad I wasn't the only one who had the idea. These mag followers are great, even though they are polymer I have never had a hiccup with them in a variety of different surplus metal magazines. Think I will see if they work in a Russian Red Bakelite.

Great function! Works in the following mags...

by

Don't listen to people saying these work in magpul plastic! My magpul says 1LX50 and the follower is grooved it won't work! It doesn't work in my Thermold mags because that spring is too fat to fit in the follower. It does work in all my metal mags and it works great in the slabside Tapco mags that Primary arms sells for $10! I love a bolt hold open. I may sell all the mags that don't work with these followers and buy all Tapco slabside mags. They look traditional and work great. I hope these followers hold up to the bolt slamming against them. I have my doubts but They'll work for a while I'm sure but I can't see them lasting a lifetime of shooting.

Works great!

by

These work perfectly in newer tapco mags haven't tried in steel mags because all of my steel ones are yugo. This BHO in my opinion works better than the yugo mags because sometimes the bolt will skip across the follower in the yugo mags (unless I use my yugo AK they never fail) but I've never had the bolt in my Hungarian AK skip past these. Highly recommended to let you know you're empty and didn't have a FTF.

Depends on the magazines.

by

I bought several packages of these followers. I first tried to install them in some of my steel magazines. I have loaded and used all of these mages so I know that they are functional. Some of the mags would not accept the follower. I compared those that would accept the followers to those that would not and it appears that there is enough of a dimensional difference to cause a problem. I'm sure with a little Dremel work the followers would work fine in the narrow mags. All of my plastic mags (Tapco / Magpul) readily accepted the followers. Tested them in my AKs and the bolt does lock back when the mag is empty. The downside to the AKs (not the followers) is that the bolt then closes as soon as you remove the mag. All that being said I have ordered more of these because they work when the mag is empty.

Follow up to my initial review.

by

My previous review stated that these worked well in my plastic mags (Tapco / Magpul). I used all of the followers that I bought before getting to my Tapco mags. Based on the outside geometry I did not see any reason why they wouldn't worked. Decided to try one today and found that the generation of Tapco mags that I have has an alignment groove cut in the original follower and a mating rib on the inside of the mag. The original follower sides are shorter to line up behind that rib. Hence these will not go into the mag without some Dremel modifications.

Works as it should

by

Works like it should...but I find it slower for tactical reloads as it is harder to pull out the empty mag as the mag has a lot of bolt tension on it and then once the mag is pulled out the bolt comes flying forward making an obnoxious sound.

Perfect addition

by

Works perfectly and a snap to install

WeaponTech BHO AK47 mag followers

by

Installed over 20 of these in a variety of AK47 mags. They all work as described by the maker in my AKs and a CMMG Mk 47. A definite plus to have the BHO feature.

Works great!

by

I put one in a promag, one in a metal foreign mag, and one in a tapco mag, and they all work perfect. I'll definitely be ordering more of these.

Easy to install. It does what they say it does.

Great product!

Works like a champ!

Good Product

by

Should have this 30 years ago.

good idea but not for AK-47 Ca. version

by

Too difficult to use with the mandatory Ca. mag lock on the AK47. You need three hands to prevent the bolt from slamming shut when releasing the mag- not good, even with a tough AK.

Awesome Product

by

It was very frustrating to shoot with mag's that did not have the bolt hold open follower feature. Once I replaced them with the new followers it was a blast. Easy replacement took all of 3 minutes.Thanks PA!!
