    Best of it’s kind

    Adds 10 to 40 as advertised. Looks great. Unlike previous review, I have no wiggle. Machining is top notch and it rides in existing floor plate groove perfectly. As with all these extensions, just make sure your spring seats properly. It can bind if not careful.

    Affordable priced, exceptionally versatile

    Being priced dramatically lower than most magazine plates with less ammo increase, this magazine plate is absolutely fantastic. The fact that it works with relatively any PMAG I install it on is great, it also works with the PMAG coupler so you can gang multiple magazines with extensions together to increase ammo capacity even more.

    There is potential

    Pros- This extension adds 10 rounds to your 40 rds mag and 8 to your 30. All that for a not bad at all price tag. The finish is sleek and tough. Cons- Not a tight fit; the machining could have been done better. The locking mechanism just prevents the extension from sliding back but it allows for some wiggle room. Because it is so big, I recommend a stronger spring to balance out the tension loss.
