Star PD mag follower

Anybody know what type of follower will work in the 45 PD mags.

On another forum, someone said they put Tripp (1911) 7-round followers and springs in their PD mags. I seem to remember trying different followers (Colt, Wilson) in PD tubes, and not having much success.

On my last order from Midway on a whim I ordered a follower for the S&W CS-45. So far so good . I've only fired a few mag loads but seems to work OK gun even locks open on last round.

If anyone has old PD mags with bad followers this may help bring them back into use.
