    Looks like they'd definitely come in handy for those magazines that dont naturally "drop-free", other than that Id probably stick with stock, JMO...

    I've seen someone put similar crescent cuts in factory floorplates but I can't seem to find the pictures now. I can't imagine how they did it without cutting into the grooves that lock the floorplate onto the magazine though.

    They were posted in another thread earlier. That said, I'll be ordering a dozen as soon as they are available. Hilton Yam @ 10-8 Performance has been offering something similar for the S&W MP9 and they work great.

    They could be handy for a "double feed" I suppose. I might pick some up, depending on the price.

    10-8 has some good stuff but at about $20 (19 and change) not including shipping its kinda high. If I bought 5 for my M&P mags thats about $100 with shipping. I wonder what these will go for. The GAP floor plates were 2 for $20.

    Looks like a good idea. Depending on cost, I'll probably order a few.

    It was my understanding that they would be officially out in a couple of weeks. So far I haven't been able to find a price or real release date.

    Has anyone here, other than Larry and the people affiliated with the development of this product, ever had a situation with their glock where this was the solution to your problem?

    I am not saying the product isn't useful, I am just wondering how useful etc.....

    Are people with glocks running into some kind of common issue where this product is the answer?

    I wouldn't pay more than $10 a piece.

    Considering most magazine accessories, like Pearce, Scherer etc are in the 5-9 dollar range, I agree. Should be priced under 10 dollars.

    I purchased Pearce before, they were around $19 if I remember right...

    IMHO: I like Larry's stuff but this is not a floorplate for me...One will still need two hands to pull it out, also pinching with two fingers is weaker technique than catching on the front part of the floorplate as clearing good old 1911 style mag...Nothing is quicker and more secure than this type of floorplate sticking out under the front strap...especially with Glocks, where, if one don't have a plug in the back you can also use your tumb...Also, with this type of floor plate it could be done with one hand, something that with OEM Glock floorplate or this ( Vickers) will never be possible...

    Aftermarket baseplates like these that I've seen are metal, and metal costs more. If they are, then it's safe to say that it's impossible to be had for $10.

    Reading this gave me a headache.

    imho "Lightning Strike" make a great floorplate/magazine pad.
    I bought about 12 for IPSC use in my Glock 17 & 34s.
    About $15.00 each. Aluminum btw.
