Maybe I need to go farther on the side bevels.
I'm still stumped how you are getting that spring to fit without dragging in the 10mm body. Is it possible to measure yours?
I will try to find my calipers and fulfill your request. Perhaps I just got lucky on the tolerances with my particular setup. But then, I'd rather be lucky than smart!
I did more than just knock off the side "ridges" created by the narrower 10mm width; I bevelled th ENTIRE width of that created ridge. This may match what you mean by a "solid" bevel.
I did not need to do any work on the follower to achieve my own personal "milspec" rating on my setup, so I did not even try.
