    I have a few hi-cap NFML .40 S&W magazines which I disassembled today for cleaning. I noticed that the followers are not identical on the mags, and I thought (because I am somewhat pedantic) I would order new followers and maybe all other parts for them all - i.e. rebuild them all. But when I started looking for parts, I couldn't determine which parts are sure to fit my mags. Can someone give me quick answer on what to order? and where?

    Thanks in advance.

    All .40 NFML followers will fit all .40 NFML mags, regardless of variation.

    Is that true of magazine inserts and floor plates as well?

    If you want the latest follower, it is part # 1028. Latest variation is stamped 40/10. They go like this (earliest to latest).

    .40
    1028, .40
    1028, .40, 2
    .40, 3
    .40, 4
    .40, 5
    40/10

    Bases for nfml 9/40 mags is #455. Insert is # 5166.
    Bases for fml 9/40 mags is #3206. Insert is #5166 (same as nfml).

    I'd try to find #4 or #5 versions of followers. 40/10's may work, haven't tried any.

    I try to get my parts from GLOCK if possible, but there's others out there. I'll reserve comment as I've not had very good experience with the "other guys." In fact, just got screwed today.
