Adam from Atlas Gunworks

[00:00:02.09]
talking about mag springs for the STI mags

[00:00:05.05]
and the Gen2 Followers.

[00:00:14.07]
Alright, getting in to this,
the mags for the lock back

[00:00:18.05]
on the 211s, you’ve seen
us talk about ’em a lot,

[00:00:20.09]
but they’re getting a lot better,

[00:00:22.04]
and things are always happening,

[00:00:23.08]
and here at Atlas Gunworks,
we’ve just come out with a,

[00:00:26.04]
we had a plus 10 percent spring.

[00:00:27.08]
This is our new plus 15s.

[00:00:29.02]
So factory STI, they
actually just upped theirs.

[00:00:32.07]
They got a little more
spring power in theirs,

[00:00:34.01]
but we went even bigger
and better with ours.

[00:00:36.08]
So you get some super positive lock back.

[00:00:38.08]
So for instance, 126 Mag
in a Helios, Gen2 Follower,

[00:00:44.05]
nice positive full engagement there, and

[00:00:50.00]
you can get that really consistently

[00:00:51.03]
across a batch of mags.

[00:00:53.08]
Sometimes a little tuning required,

[00:00:55.02]
but nothing too terribly crazy.

[00:00:57.06]
So here’s some of the updates

[00:00:58.09]
that have gone on with the STI Followers.

[00:01:01.05]
The original Follower…

[00:01:07.06]
looked a lot like this Follower.

[00:01:09.07]
We’ll go up here in the light,

[00:01:11.05]
but didn’t have these
little recessed pockets,

[00:01:14.07]
and then, they came out with this Follower

[00:01:16.07]
for a short period of time.

[00:01:18.06]
So these are Gen2 Followers.

[00:01:20.07]
So if you see these,
it’s definitely a Gen2,

[00:01:23.07]
and then if you see one
that looks like this,

[00:01:25.04]
you gotta look and see if these
little pockets are recessed,

[00:01:28.02]
and then you gotta measure this part.

[00:01:29.08]
So where the Gen2s are
different than the Gen1s,

[00:01:32.07]
and this is all for a Gen2
Mag not the old old ones,

[00:01:36.01]
that’s a whole different animal,

[00:01:38.04]
but you gotta measure here

[00:01:40.04]
and you’re gonna get somewhere
between higher than 570.

[00:01:43.05]
If you measure up a little bit,

[00:01:44.08]
you’re gonna get in the 580s.

[00:01:47.09]
So, that’s how you’re gonna
tell if it’s a wide one or not,

[00:01:50.08]
and what this does…

[00:01:55.00]
Yeah, 585, 590, somewhere
in there in the wide.

[00:01:59.01]
So if you’ve got one that looks like this,

[00:02:00.06]
and it doesn’t have these two pockets,

[00:02:02.01]
measure here, you probably
got an original one.

[00:02:04.08]
They ran those for
about a year and a half,

[00:02:06.03]
I think, two years maybe.

[00:02:08.09]
Probably closer to a year and a half.

[00:02:12.01]
What we’re seeing with the factory Mags

[00:02:13.07]
is that they take a pretty good set,

[00:02:15.06]
and then they don’t have quite the pop.

[00:02:17.02]
So we get a plus 10 percent spring made.

[00:02:20.01]
It was definitely an improvement.

[00:02:21.03]
We liked it.

[00:02:22.02]
Want a little more horsepower,

[00:02:23.03]
and now the plus 15 spring’s here,

[00:02:26.01]
and it’s working really really well.

[00:02:27.04]
It’s super consistent.

[00:02:31.08]
That’s how you identify
your Gen2 Follower,

[00:02:34.02]
and the nice thing about the Gen2s

[00:02:35.05]
is because they’re wider
they don’t tilt in the mags,

[00:02:38.02]
and then the extra spring
combined with that,

[00:02:40.03]
and we can across five
or six mags at the set,

[00:02:44.07]
get nice positive lock back.

[00:02:47.08]
So there’s our plus 15 spring.

[00:02:50.02]
You’ll see that on the website soon,

[00:02:52.03]
and hopefully I see you
guys on the range soon.
