PLATE ANNOUNCES DEVELOPMENT OF POLYMER MAGAZINES FOR P320 AND M17 PISTOLS
FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, August 1, 2018 – PLATE, LLC is pleased to announce the development of the PLATE MAG S32/9 series of polymer magazines. The new magazines will be compatible with Sig Sauer® P320® and the US Army’s new M17® and M18™ pistols.
The patent pending magazines that are in development will exhibit superior feeding performance, easier disassembly and a more economic price point when compared to currently available metal alternatives. The new magazines will be compatible with both standard and flared grip modules and will be initially offered in 9x19mm NATO with capacities ranging from 10-30 rounds. The S32/9 series magazines were developed alongside the ACEM® (Advanced Case Engaging Magazine-loader) P9/40 pistol loader and are “ACEM Optimized” for rapid reloading while maintaining proper cartridge stack geometry.
The S32/9 models are the first of two series of magazines currently being developed under PLATE’s new PLATE MAG product line. Details, including the release date and suggested retail prices, will be shared at a later date. PLATE MAG updates can be found at www.plate.us/plate-mag.

Founded in 2013, PLATE was launched to manufacture its innovative ACEM® line of devices that aid in the loading of ammunition magazines. The company has since continued to grow its ACEM® line and is actively developing into additional product areas.
