The orange pads are great for distinguishing them on the range and training classes from other shooters. Also their high visibility is great for locating them on the range in the grass.
The Glock orange magazine floor plates are made to the same specifications as the standard factory bases. The orange pads are great for distinguishing them on the range and training classes from other shooters. Also their high visibility is great for locating them on the range in the grass. These base pads install exactly like the stock black base pads. Constructed of high visibility orange polymer. Do you own two different caliber Glock pistols? Installing these bright colored floor plates on a certain caliber magazine makes it easy to distinguish (for example) your 9mm Magazines from your .40 Magazines. Are you an instructor and have to strain and check numerous times to determine if your students have a magazine inserted in the pistol? No longer, you can see this floor plate from a distance. **IMPORTANT NOTE - This floor plate does NOT increase the capacity of the magazine.

These fit great, look great, and really help me distinguish my mags from my friends and families when we all go to the range together. It also looks MUCH better than just writing in sharpie on your mags. Just an FYI, the first time you take the baseplate off it is difficult. Just look it up on youtube. I ended up just using pliers and ripping two of them off. I don't ever plan on changing them back out again so I didn't worry about saving them. Also, Glock sells a blue plate as well. It is a light, sky blue. Something to keep in mind is that they offer the orange plate for the 9/357/40 size and the 45/10mm size, but they only offer the blue for the smaller 9/357/40 size. So if you had multiple calibers and were trying to have different color OEM baseplates, it might make more sense to get the blue for 9mm or 40 and the orange for 45 or 10mm. Just something to keep in mind if you have multiple calibers and were trying to coordinate them! I didn't know about the blue ones and I probably...
I bought this so that I could distinguish my magazine with defensive rounds from magazines I use for training. It fits as it should. No complaint.
What irks me is that the photo of the product shows a nice collection of five floor plates. Now, I admit, there is that parenthetical statement "single piece bulk packaged." "Single piece" does suggest there's only one (but $5+ for a little piece of plastic?!), but "bulk packaged" suggests, well, bulk, i.e., more than one. It's my mistake for not really thinking about it. So, don't be fooled by the photo. You will get ONE floor plate for a cost of over $6 when you include shipping.
July 9, 2013 Update:
I am happy to see that Amazon has changed the photo to show only ONE floor plate. Much less confusing. The price is still a problem, although I have to admit - I have seen these at other sellers for about $3.50 or so each (including blue ones). The mailing charges can bring the price up to the $7+ the Amazon...
Without a Glock Disassembly Tool, it took me a bit to find a small sunglasses-type screwdriver that would push in the spring and release the bottom clip cap. There's plenty of videos on YouTube, should you have trouble. I bought this to distinguish my clips from range rounds to my home protection hollow points. Does the trick and I like adding color to my Glock. Looks cool on. Great product and great price.
