Compatible magazine follower for Cybergun (VFC) S&W M&P9?

I have a Cybergun (VFC) S&W M&P9 (full version, not compact) where the little nub on the magazine follower which you press down to compress the spring and allow easier loading has mostly broken off on one mag. It's usable with some effort, but I'd like to replace it.

I'd like to get a compatible and durable replacement. Suggestions?

Magazine followers from other guns and manufacturers appear compatible but I know from experience this isn't always the case. I'm wondering if anyone knows a replacement part that will definitely work in this application.

Would stick with OEM.

WGCSHOP should have you part around $2-3 USD.

Thanks for that source. I hadn't run across that site before. They appear to have exactly the part I need for $2.10 USD.

Great link, thank you!

I'm going to order the followers from that site (probably three, just in case) - are there other parts that commonly fail on the Cybergun/VFC M&P 9 fullsize GBBPs that I should buy at the same time, or parts that commonly need replacing on GBBPs in general that I should keep in stock?

Shipping is probably going to be $15-20 anyway, so since I'm paying for three tiny parts to be shipped, I might as well get other parts at the same time.

Not aware of much, maybe a nozzle, and some springs perhaps.

As you know, shipping is quite hefty, so you should just get anything that's affordable, and really anything you think that will break.

After posting, I thought that a spare magazine spring and recoil spring would be wise.

A friend also mentioned the gas nozzle and magazine gas release valve might be a good idea too.

As you say, I'll take a quick spin through the catalog and see if there's anything else small and breakable that I can get at the same time. Thank you for the advice!

NOTE TO FUTURE SELF - on that site search for CG MNP9 - search results relevant.

Follow-up - parts arrived from WGC a few weeks back - the new follower fit perfectly and the magazine is much easier to load as a result. I've put the other spare parts aside on the contingency they are needed.

Thank you to BioRage and others who commented in this thread.
