Ruger AICS pattern mags with weak springs Login/Join

posted
I recently acquired a Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle in .308
It came with a OEM steel mag produced by Accurate Mag. I also purchased a couple of Ruger polymer mags as they are lighter and half the price.
All 3 mags have the same issue: weak springs (worse in the polymer) and a follower that tilts easily so the rounds nosedive into the very long feed ramp.
All are AICS pattern staggered mags.
Does anyone make a replacement magazine spring for these trypes of mags?
Is there another way to tune them up?
The problem seems less with the first and last rounds. The rounds in the middle seem to have almost no spring tension and just rattle around. All mags are 10 rounds.
