    New Ace mag plastic followers

    At the range today a guy wanted to know how to fix the plastic followers in his Colt Ace magazines because they won't push up the slide stop anymore. I know that there was a thread here talking about replacement followers made with a steel insert. I am terrible at searching the forum so could someone please guide me to that discussion or even a link to the company selling those replacement followers.
    Thank you in advance;
    Mike

    I fixed one years ago using a fillister head screw, I'm still using it.
    I fixed one of the earlier magazines but now I use an aluminum screw.
    This reminds me I need to get a couple of these followers with the insert.

    I've converted 4 magazines over with the Marvel Precision steel insert followers and all have been flawless. For $15 each, it's an inexpensive way to get a old magazine with a worn out hold open tab back in operation.
