Part name: Follower
and Follower Slide - Assembly
Part Function: The Follower
presses up on the cartridges in the clip so as to
prepare them for feeding.
The Follower Slide
rests on top of the follower and moves back and
forth about 1/4 inch providing a more even pressure
to the individual cartridges. The reason that the
Follower Slide is designed to move back and forth
is so that it can come into contact with the lower
cartridge in the clip no matter if the cartridge
is loaded into the clip on the left or the right.
Special Notes: The follower
and follower slide are pictured together here. I
do not disassemble these parts.
