The very top of the spring is also narrower where it seats into the follower.

    I don't see why they wouldn't do this with the entire line of magazines, which means it is likely that we will have factory 22 round magazines sometime soon!
    Thanks for the info. Any guesses on if the followers will work with the springs that Taylor Freelance uses for their extensions?

    That I couldn't tell you, sorry. I'll look and see if I have a Taylor spring laying around. If I do, I'll take it with to SHOT, and check and see.

    Was this a live/prototype sample at the SHOT?
    Interesting. That means the std body can (officially) do +2 - where members have done so years ago.

    For those wondering, we shot thousands of rounds through a few 2020 VP9s between two media/range days, with no malfunctions of any kind--not like we were expecting any. HK has done way more testing than that prior to releasing the mags.

    Robin Taylor stopped by the booth, but didn't have one his HK spring kits with him to see if they would fit, but I'll go ahead and get a kit, and see if they will work.
