The guys on the 357 thread have mag issues with #2 followers. Anyone here have the same?

The only issue I've seen with .40 magazines is that a few of the ones that had exposed metal in the front for an ambi-mag release and #8 followers had some extra plastic near the feed lips that would cause feeding issues, but I've never personally seen one of these magazines and the people who brought this issue up said that when they sanded away the excess plastic the magazines functioned fine.

I had heard that people had problems with #6 and #7 followers, but I didn't hear any specifics about the problems. I can say that my magazines with #5 and #8 followers(w/ magazine bodies marked "no number" and "1") have all functioned flawlessly. There are magazine bodies marked "2" but I haven't tried one yet.

I heard that there are now #9 followers in the .40 Gen4 magazines but I haven't personally seen them yet.
