Follower, aluminum or Delrin?

    Or don’t bother. Was thinking of swapping out the follower on my Mossberg. Would like the ability to see if the gun is empty a little easier, among other things. I do have a preference for delrin guitar picks, FWIW. Do the materials make that big a difference, or just pick one?

    ... funny you should ask.

    I just replaced the magazine spring
    in my Shockwave with a "Wolff" spring.

    ... and replaced my follower with a Delrin
    follower from "Go Gauge" (non LED model).

    I have no clue whether this will make any
    real difference in a situation.

    What I do know is that when I press the follower
    in with my thumb, and feel a silky smooth action
    with no wobble, and no screechy metal on metal noise,
    I personally feel that it was money well spent.

    I have the S&J Hardware +1 on my 18" 590 (7+1 with 2.75" shells with extension) and it came with their bright green delrin follower and I'm super pleased with the quiet and smooth action, so much so that I plan on getting one for my old school 500 with the mag tube that needs pliers to loosen up.
