Maximize Your M-LOK Experience

Magpul has released an in-depth document detailing how to get the most out of the M-LOK system. For those who don’t know, M-LOK, which stands for Modular Lock System, is a license-free platform system developed by Magpul that serves as an evolution of the MOE slot system used since 2007. It functions as a method for hard mounting accessories to a negative space mounting point. When compared to MOE, M-LOK features a larger slot, squared sides, and adds the following feature set:

- Direct mount capability
- Cammed T-nut
- Optimized for metal and polymer manufacturing
- Recoil/impact mitigation lugs
- Intermediate spacing option
- Multi-directional mounting
- Backwards MOE compatibility

M-LOK is easy to manufacture, works in polymer and metal equally well, is incredibly strong, and requires no back side of mounting surface access.

SOFIC 2014 – Magpul L-Plate

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

20140521-092519.jpg

Occasionally, one of my best finds at a trade show will turn out to be something that has been around for some time. While most of the shooting world has adopted polymer rifle magazines there are still those who are required to use the US GI 30 round mag, such as the Marine Corps. Years ago, Magpul introduced the L-Plate, a low profile base plate that replaces the base plate on the issue mag. It’s made from Santorene over molded onto a steel plate. Unlike the Ranger Plate, the L-Plate has a much lower, streamlined shape that is easy to grab and has channels for cordage if you use that to aid in pulling them from mags or the old-school carabiner storage for empties. The L-Plate also serves as a bumber to help lengthen the life cycle of the mag.

I think that the L-Plate is a great after market upgrade for US GI 30 round mags. Sold in packs of 3. Check it out.
