Why is it that my newly installed Arredondo followers for my Para P16-40 gets a bullet stuck when I load them at maximum capacity? The follower won't go up anymore. I thought these things are drop-in and works automatically since they are designed for Para.

Am using the stock basepad for Para (16rds). Also, tried it with a TP basepad (18rds) but still the same problem. Stock factory springs also.

Any inputs?

The follower is binding on the spring at full compression. One of my mags does this pero di ko pa nakalikot. However, I noticed that the bottom front and rear ng follower medyo pa wide at thin. This might need trimming a bit para di maipit.

I'll let you know once I can get mine to work. Right now kasi I'm using the stock para followers pero extremely modified at gumagana kaya I find no reason to swich yet sa arredondo ko'ng spares.

Btw, anong mag yan Para o mec-gar?

Para mag. Notice ko after I load on the 4th or 5th bullet, may gap na sa may heads yong nasa baba pero hindi pa kumakalog. On the last round (16th), maingay na, there's a loose bullet or two underneath.

Even when I install the TP +2 basepad, nasa 16th rnd umaalog, kasya nya 18rds lahat pero minsan sumasablay when I take off the 2 bullets and a bullet gets stuck at the side of the follower on the 16th rnd.

Ilan ba capacity ng mecgar mo ngayon? 19? 20?

problema yan ng mga Para mags. unlike the mecgar mags, maikli lang kasi yung ribs ng orig Para, siguro mga 1/3 down flat na, di ba? bumubuka na kasi yung mga bala after the rib.

you need to have the ribs bevelled and polished para di sumasabit paakyat. another option is to use arredondo spacers or press the tube narrower. but you lose 1 round of capacity this way.

Yong arredondo basepad won't fit on my ICE magwell. yong TP (for para/armscor/bul m5) ang kasya.

Already sold the followers to a fellow shooter, buti pa sa kanya walang problema, nka 19 + 1 reloadable na sya. Installed my stock para followers, 18 + 1 reloadable, at least may peace of mind. May shoot pa naman bukas sa Cagayan de Oro for their fiesta celebration.

i think so...wala pa sa aking yong magwell ko, it's still there in manila.

have a fellow shooter here na nka ordinary DP magwell, same lang naman sila ng ICE except for the delrin insert. kasya naman daw sa box and tp basepad for bulm5 gamit niya.

when i bought my tp basepads, saw a DP look-alike magwell by tp also, parehong-pareho talaga yong itsura. iba nga naman talaga ingenuity ng mga pinoy. maganda rin yong beavertail nila, high-ride..kulang lang ng curve sa mga sides yong tail.
