    Default Magpul followers for 6.8

    Does anyone know if Magpul 5.56 marked anti-tilt followers will work in C-prod/PRI 6.8 mags, and still function properly?
    I'm having trouble finding Magpul 6.8 marked followers other than on the PRI web site.( $3.75 ea)
    Review on midways site for the 5.56 Magpul followers say they worked in 6.8 mags ( 3 for $5.65)
    I've got a few cprod and PRI mags ( old style no waffle) with busted followers I need to replace.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yup Lima 3/3 out of K-bay
    I didn't get to Lima until '89. Left it in '93.
    Our new Company CO was from Force Recon so he called us Force Lima.
    We had a company guidon and T-shirts made with "Force Lima, Pain is weakness leaving the body"
    I think Lima is still using the "Force Lima" motto to this day.

    Hey Force,

    I just pulled apart a 5.56 PMAG and tried to put the follower into an older non-waffle PRI 6.8 mag, and it didn't work. I was curious about this as well, so I figured I would try. However, the 5.56 follower is too short and the extensions on the follower do not ride/fit properly against the PRI mag ribs.

    I would stick with the 6.8 specific followers.

    I believe the Pmag followers are Pmag specific. I think you need the usgi magpul followers.

    What James said above.
    The followers I was looking at are magpul 5.56 followers for USGI mags. (pmag followers will only fit pmags)
    I've got 2 of the old PRI(non waffle) 25 rd mags with horrible followers (red) that have to be replaced.
    I am going to pull apart a USGI 5.56 mag tonight and see if the follower will fit in a PRI 6.8 mag.
