Sig Sauer 226 22LR Last Round Hold Open Follower is a drop-in replacement for the factory follower. This follower locks the slide back on an empty magazine. It does NOT add any additional capacity to the magazine. Use in conjunction with our 15 round conversion plug seen HERE


The NicTaylor follower is designed to catch the slide itself and thus lock the slide back/open. This technique is used frequently on AR15 22lr conversion kits. However, when doing this the user looses the ability to drop the mag free since the magazine is essentially being stopped from falling free when the mag release is pressed. The user will either have to pull the magazine out or pull the slide back to its most rearward position and manually engage the slide lock. This will allow for the magazine to drop free.

4 of 5 Great/ Not Fantastic September 11, 2020
Reviewer: Gregory B. from Davenport, IA United States  
Follower works as advertised.  Slide holds open after the last round every time, but you do have to lock the slide back before the mag will drop free.  Not optimal for reload training/practice, but works.  Needed a little lube when first installed to work smoothly.

4 of 5 Great product after a little modification September 1, 2020
Reviewer: Charles Ditmore, Mechanical Engineer from Oakland , CA United States  
The followers worked flawlessly in my older mags. I purchased two new mags from Sig and ran into a little issue. Maybe my older mags are a bit more worn, but the followers jammed inside the new mags when inserted into the end of the spring. The follower moved smoothly by itself and the spring also was free to move without the follower. Additionally, there was no resistance to installing the end of the follower into the spring. I finally figured out that the flat surface of the follower that runs down the outside of the spring is a little too close to the centerline of the spring, such that when the follower is installed in the spring in the bore in the mag, the spring is forced against the front of the bore and the follower is forced against the rear. Removing enough material with some sandpaper from the flat surface so that the spring cannot contact it when pushed towards the rear of the mag made it work smooth as silk.

5 of 5 Just received the last round hold open followers August 29, 2020
Reviewer: Aaron Kimpton from Virginia  
I have 15 p226 22lr mags, I run them pretty heavily every time I go to the range.  The old followers did not fail, but I did have to clean them. These new ones seem to slide up and down in the magazine much easier. I am very impressed with the revision. Thank you.

5 of 5 Excellent Product! August 21, 2020
Reviewer: CJ from PLANO, TX United States  
Hold the slide open after the last round is a must for Sig's 22LR conversion kits. Dry firing it could damage the barrel and firing pin.
