Can U put magpul followers in thermold mags?

Like the title says.... I found 4 11.99 each. does not have anti tilt followers. Can I upgrade the followers with magpul or other aftermarket followers?

I doubt it, magpul follower kit are for G.I magazines. I would try the thermold mags out first, they may be fine.

I have G.I mags from the 80's with the green tiltable followers, they work fine without failures of any kind.

The thermolds I have seen seem to work OK.

But since your post made me curious, I went and swapped a Pmag follower into an Orlite magazine.
A little work with a needle nose on the spring made it hook right into the follower and basepiece. The follower seems to move freely and not bind at all. Sadlt, I won't be able to testfire anytime soon, but it may work
