Brownells Followers


Recommended Posts

Hi Zee,

I don't think you'll find a "Made in USA" follower that is actually marked as such. I sent an e-mail to Brownells asking if the follower was made in the USA and printed their response e-mail. I also printed the page off their site that shows the follower because it also states "Made in USA"

Yes sir, I did the same email question. Awaiting their response. Man do you think it it that difficult to stamp a piece of tin? You know I can fab up a die and press it marked Made in USA with the Chuck tools and equipment I have. Just lit the Wood Burner Stove for the first time this season. 44 degrees in Florida this AM.

What is the difference? 12-3" or 12-3.5"

 

Hi Zee,

 

I think they are meaning the 3.5 would be for a Benelli using a 3.5" shell (Super Black Eagle). I actually have both the Brownells 3" and 3.5" followers. They are very close to each other. The 3.5 is slightly shorter and the pattern of the holes in the side is a little different. They are both shorter than the stock Benelli M4 follower. I'm using the Brownells 3" one in my M4 but I'm sure the 3.5 would work just as well.

I don't understand why it would matter because the compressed spring coils are longer than the follower anyways. The follower is not going to limit capacity provided the spring is seated at the same "depth" in it.

I agree, I don't understand why they have two different ones either.

I installed it yesterday. Went with the Red Follower. Thanks, TDL.
