I have not seen anything on this subject in some time. Last I saw here was that they were #2 on MagPul's priority list and that they would be out soon.

Any info?

Thanks...

Any new word on price point?

Is "L-Plate" or "Lumpy" gonna be marked on the plate anywhere?  Maybe on the bottom so it can take all the hits......

bump for more info.

When they come out, I'm buying a half-dozen, at least.

I really have to give credit to Magpul for listening to Lumpy's idea.  Makes me want to shop with them all the more.

Wow I like the look's of these , how do they come off ?
Link Posted: 9/18/2005 12:48:26 PM EDT
I think they go on like a ranger plate. There is a polymer base plate that fits up in to the magazine with a tab on the bottom. The Lumpy plate will slide on to the metal tabs that held the metal floor plate on. Then spring tension pushes the tab from the polymer base plate down through the center of the Lumpy plate to lock it on.

Correct.

Interesting.....

And the use would be for possibly getting a better fit into a mag pouch while still protecting the bottom of the mag itself?  Any other uses?

Needless to say some will be heading my way for "collector's" value.

I'll be getting a few when they are out. Never saw the thread before.....

I think (we're in trouble now) that he mentioned the idea because of baseplates and the baseplate tabs getting beat up while letting the mags drop free and hit the ground.

These are basically a cushion that protects the mag.






So.........was I close?

I actually prefer the look of those to the ranger plates.

MagPul. I can't thank them enough already for the god-sent enhanced follower. I've recovered many a POS mag just by replacing the follower with one of those. The enhanced trigger guard is also one of the best visual enhancements for the AR receiver ever.

Now, this comes along. I may just faint.

Besides, can you guys imagine how swelled up Lumpy's head is now that someone listened to him?
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 3:59:24 PM EDT
why hadn't i heard about this yet? man, I'm amazed at how much goes on around here i miss....

either way, i'm in for some when they come out for sure.......

I know I will be getting a few
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 10:57:52 PM EDT
I'd probably have to pick some up as well.

I asked in the noted Magpul Industry board 9/28 WED, if Magpul will make high performance magazines and this was his answer.

Richard,

With so many magazine improvements under your belt, I think the next logical progression is to manufacture your own complete magazines in house.

Just my two cents.

Regards,

Justin

ETA: I just saw the above linked thread.  My bad.
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 5:18:03 AM EDT
I think they should make the Lumpy only in pink.

Just kidding, I'll have to try them.
