After consulting with one of the counter guys at my local FFL about the slide lock issue with EAA mags, particularly the mag follower as the source of the problem, he offered up a solution that appears to be cost effective if done in bulk, and does not require modifications to the gun.
How many of you would be interested in purchasing a replacement custom follower that will have the same slide lock lip size and shape of the OEM Jericho/Baby Eagle - IWI/IMI/Magnum Research mags, and otherwise identical to the EAA followers?
Current plans are only for the .40 (only one I have access to). If this works, and other calibers/makes of magazines are having issues, the same solution may apply but will require shipping to me of the problem mag and a factory follower.
This is not a get rich quick business plan. This is a cover my expenses and compensate my time to solve an issue venture. I am estimating a cost of $6 per + shipping. This may change depending on cost of materials.
