Some colt ace mags have metal followed some have plastic. Sometimes every mag locks mag sometimes only some do. What application are you using them for ? For colt aces some

Does anyone sell replacement followers for the Ace magazines? I have several that I modified for a Marvel conversion and now I would like to have them back in stock condition to use with a Nelson.

Hello,

There are lots of counterfeit "Colt" magazines floating around eBay.  Just because it has a hallmark stamped on the base plate does not make it really from Colt.  Buyer beware.

Hello Christian,

You really need a Colt collector to chime in but from what I have been told you need to look at things like: how the base plate attaches, the thickness of the tube, the finish/polish, the hallmark (with the pony and without).  Last week I saw a magazine for sale that only had "22" stamped on the base plate....not a Colt.  There's plenty on the web about identifying and dating Colt magazines.

I was using the Metalform Ace mags from Marvel years back.  I have 2 left.  Also one Colt like the bottom pictured mag.  Also Have one older Colt Ace with the pinned bottom. 
I use Nelson and AA mags.
