The green follower has a longer foot in the front of the follower, that follows the front inside of the magazine.
This helps it from "diving" where the round tips forward or backwards. It mainly helps with the backwards diving, which can really screw up function.
I bought a bunch for under $2 a piece delivered, and I have too many!
By the way, they are only to replace the black plastic followers in 30rd USGI/Colt magazines. They are too long for 20rd magazines. I tried cutting one down to size for the heck of it, but couldn't get past the spring clip in the magazine.
If your magazines function 100%, then it is simply insurance. If they function less than 100%, its the best fix around.
