    Hi folks,
    Quick query, have the above on an EW in 338WM, love this rifle!
    The follower spring seems to be damaged, the leaf under that where the follower slides into has a bend in the middle of it changing the curve from one direction to the opposite. (Wish I could post pics, but it NEVER works for me, lol.)
    Is this normal? Can someone with an EW have a look if theirs is the same please?

    Oh, one other thing, does anybody know for sure if a Kimber 8400 plastic follower can be replaced with ANY other brand of STEEL/STAINLESS follower?

    Thank you folks.
