10/10 AR mag? What's that?

JK
I put some Ranger plates on my 20's and they magiclly turned into 17's.
IMO not worth it on 10's

I've done that.

It works out well except I had to trim the followers to get back to ten round capacity.

I like the look, and it gives you something to grab which I like on a magazine that short.

Thanks for the pics n' info guys.

I like the look but dont want to mess with trimming the followers or losing 1 rd in an already limited supply.

The Ranger baseplate is different and extends in to the magazine tube a little bit. I also swapped the cheapo green follower for a Magpul anti-tilt follower and that combination made it a 9 round magazine.

I trimmed about 1/8" from the rim side of the follower and now they hold 10 again.

I did this for C products and D&H 10/10 magazines, one didn't need trimming but I can't remember which.

I always assumed metal magazines.

On a P-mag, the ranger floor plates attach the same way as the standard floor plate so you should get exactly the same capacity.

With that said, I don't really see a need for ranger floor plates on P-mags, a 20-30 round magazine is already long enough to grab easily and the standard floor plate isn't going to break when you drop a magazine. I never thought of a P-mag 10/10, I guess that might be good with a ranger floor plate but I didn't want to cut down magazine tubes. I didn't want to trim followers but I wanted 10 rounds so I did what I had to do.
