I hastily bought these thinking they were for p-mags. When they arrived, i then realized they were for GI mags (which it states clearly in the description) lol my fault. I didnt have any GI mags at the time but after getting these, it gave me an excuse to go buy more mags. And we all know you can never have too many mags!!
Couldn't believe they were cheaper than Amazon... By far.
Great product, as Advertised and I'll be putting them through hell to see how they hold up... My first time using them.

Installation was easy. Softer rubber than I expected but not flimsy. BCM always great with everything!
I use these for two reasons. They separate by feel my 5.56 magpul PMAGs and my aluminum 300 blackout mags. These make it very easy to to pull the mags out of pouches.
There was some excess flash on the rubber inside the loops. It was the work of a moment and a razor to get that taken care of, and the Ranger plates bring a more modern disassembly method to my USGI magazines.
Having replaced the plates on BravoCompanyUSA Teflon 30 round magazines with these Ranger Plates rounds out the upgrade with the Magpul Enhanced Follower Gen2. The ~$12.00 magazine now has ~$9.00 in upgrades and behaves better than a costlier magazine (e.g. HK Maritime which was $50 retail).
One issue that dinged it a star is that the part of the plate that goes against the spring is not cleanly cut from its die and is apparently a bit exact fit for the Teflon 30 round magazine, such that some light cutting is needed to ensure that the piece snaps into place when the grip plate is slid over the top. I recommend lightly pushing the spring side plate element into the magazine bottom with the grip plate, such that the larger clips are inserted first, then and the spring side plate can snap in place, locking the whole operation.
