All my flat plates from Adam and from MidwayUSA (USPc9,40, SK in 9) are plastic and have functioned flawlessly. All appear to be genuine HK.
There you go. I would do some shooting with the flat floor plates because you will notice the gun handles a little different in recoil.If you ever get in a shooting, the mag drop is a non-issue. Where I had problems was being in high round count classes and constantly dropping mags with the hard plastic bottoms. Luckily, I had the benefit of having my workplace replace all the mags I damaged, most folks are paying out of pocket. I have to pay for this stuff now myself, so I run the rubberized bottoms to train.Got it. So if I'm going to be running these at the range then go with the rubber pinky extension mag floorplates but for concealed carry then the flat floorplates are okay... I imagine in a self defense situation I won't worry about a dumped empty mag that hit the ground and broke, especially if I have a fresh batch of Corbon 185 grain DPX's to go.
O these RTG guys are the real deal. Website looks kinda shady but I had no problems with my credit card when purchasing from them, and like I said it got to my place super fast. And I hate to say it but the floorplates were cheaper than what HKparts.net charges.Thanks for the information, I'm going to search and get several flat bottoms.
The newer USPc/P2000 floorplates I have are unmarked, but they are HK. I do have one older floorplate that has "HK" on it....the USPC9 flat base plates are unmarked. Both are hard plastic...
