USGI 5.56x45 Ranger Magazine Floorplate Replacement - 3 Pack - Black - Magpul
USGI Ranger Plate Installation
CAUTION: Spring Under Pressure
Use care when performing installation as the magazine spring may eject and cause injury.
Step 1: Remove Existing Floor Plate
Using a 5.56x45 Dummy Round or small screwdriver, gently pry the floor plate up to disengage the catch while sliding the floor plate towards the rear of the magazine.
Step 2: Install Lock Plate
Install the included lock plate by setting it on top of the magazine spring with the bullet symbol facing the front of the magazine. Push the lock plate down, hold, and continue to the next step.
Step 3: Attach Ranger Plate
While depressing the lock plate, slide the ranger plate’s exposed metal tabs underneath the magazine body’s tabs. Once slid fully forward into place you should hear a click, indicating the lock plate is seated correctly.
Step 4: Verify Installation
Make sure the lock plate is correctly seated. Perform final inspection including function check per US Army TM 05588C-10/1A (41-42) to verify correct installation.
NOTE: For best results it is not recommended to load a 30-round USGI magazine with more than 28 5.56x45 cartridges (.223 Remington) to ensure correct seating.
Attention: Check magazine function via live fire test prior to tactical deployment.
