Aluminum Base Plates
Ratings & Reviews
Adds weight and style to your mags
These add a little more weight to your magazines for a consistent drop/reload. They look great, and the color matched the extended mag release and slide cover plate that I bought at the same time. Did not match the blue pin/slide release kit, though.
Easier to install than the HEAVY EXTENDED ALUMINUM MAGAZINE BASE PLATE, and these come with 2 for the same price. I did not have to shave off the tabs at the bottom of my mags, but I did have to squeeze the heck out of them to get these to get on. Also, the tab on the bottom insert (that installs between the spring and base plate) fits this perfectly, while the tab is too large for the HEAVY BASE.
Great Accessory for Magazine
I bought these.... they are outstanding.
Great fit...tight......no 5 star because the outside edge at the back of plate has a very sharp edge digs into skin when carry concealed...not a very bright gold, could have been more polished
Don't Know Until You Know
These are very well made. It took me a couple orders to figure out that the "polished" versions are what I would consider "slightly" polished. No regrets but you should consider that the "matte" finish, at least in silver, is a chalky, VERY matte, almost white-silver. Knowing what I know now, I would recommend ordering polished in any color.
Get the polished versions. Matte is incredibly matte. Also, there are some other inserts that look like base plates, but you have to buy the DD extension as well to get them to work. They are gorgeous, don't get me wrong. I just don't want you to get fooled and have worthless base plates until you fork over $40 per extension. However, these plates are a FANTASTIC fit and very EASY to change if you've figured out a technique that works for you. There's a tool on here that appears to make things easier. I can't vouch for it because I've never tried it. But I've never had any problems with this site and its products
