    White 545 followers

    What's the story with these? I've seen zillions of steel and plum/black polyamide followers in 545 mags, but not so many white or cream colored ones. Commerical? Drunk commie forgot to add the dye pellets?

    They were probably made to be California compliant. No color means it canít be associated with a black rifle.

    Well yeah, but being white in CA isn't cool either...so you'd think they'd go with a less offensive color? 🙂 Seriously though, I'm not sure why the commies would do this.

    Seems like these are most commonly seen on plum/black Molot ribbed 45 rounders, but considering how common it is for abnormal stuff to be installed by commie factories, commie armorer's, commie exporters, importers, and regular gun owners that get their hands on them in the USA, that isn't really proof of anything.

    Does your TB also have a white plastic locking plate? I've seen pics of some of those as well. In any case, I really wonder what the story is with these. Don't really care if they are "rare" or expensive or whatever, really just curious about what they were thinking. If it is a Molot True Black era thing, it shouldn't be "lost to history", not yet anyway!

    Cool thanks. All the examples I've seen have been installed on Molot mags, which certainly suggests that they are the original source even if the occasional one pops up on a different kind of 545 mag. Commie mags have always been tricky, but the Russian ban on exporting certain mil items has made it even worse. It's pretty common for mag bodies and their internal parts to be shipped over seperatly, and even that alone could result in all kinds of parts swapping at various stages.
