Model 82 magazine follower

Is there an aftermarket source for the "domed" magazine followers that came with (what I guess were) the early Kimber of Oregon Model 82s? I'd like to upgrade the other magazines I have for mine (which have the flat followers). Thanks!

Why do you consider the domed followers an upgrade over the flat ones?

My 82 came with a magazine that has the domed follower. I have the impression that the flat followers came later on. I suppose the only reason I have is that I like it better.

You are right. Domed chromed follower earlier. Flat alloy follower later. Value is about the same so maybe you can find a trade with someone.

One problem with the domed plated followers was that the plating had a tendency to wear off or flake off. It made the follower look chintzy. That may be the reason they switched to the flat aluminium version.
