    My Just Right Carbine came with a 10 round mag, no big deal since I already have several standard mags for my 17. The mag has a funny looking follower, with a big hump on it;

    The first time I used it, it caused a jam when the bullet below the one being fed into chamber, also came out of the mag partially.

    Is this the standard follower for the 10rd mag?

    Can I switch it out to another version?

    I just want to make this mag a range mag, but I want it be reliable. I have not tried it in my G17 yet.

    Thanks!!

    2183-2 is what is in the brand new Gen 4 10 round mags I have and is shown in the Armorers parts list as well. 9mm6 is listed as p/n SP18012-6 for the later model 17 round mags.

    Supposidly, the 2183 followers have issues with HP bullets. And yes, only use the 9mm3 followers as replacements.

    The day the AWB sunsetted, I purchased a half dozen G19 10-round mags. Replaced all the followers with the 9mm3s.

    Interesting thread, I don't have any trouble with that follower and the hump.

    I called, and they are sending me a 9mm3 mag follower at no charge.

    Thanks again!

    Hey! Just a quick note on the JRC, I have the .40 cal model and after some minor smithing , IT IS AN AWSOME WEAPON! I have been following this gun for over a year and have been in contact with the manufacturer about it. If you have any problems they are very good on customer service. Congrats on your smart purchase.

    Seems the 9mm is the most reliable out of the box. Currently I'm working on a magazine well extension for it because the mag is a little floppy. If you have any problems you can PM me, maybe I can help.

    Also note: don't slap or slam the mag in, it's not a .223 AR. Slide it in until it clicks, you'll get better performance.

    Welcome to the club!

    Sub 2000 mobetta.

    The fact that JRC has remanufactured guns on their site makes me wonder.

    Kel-Tec Sub 2000 is a nice weapon but you're not comparing apples to apples. I have both and have handled both. JC had to iron out some bugs but is a strong product and the Sub 2000 has it's quirks too (charging bolt) and is also a strong product.
