Do the ranger plates work well?  I wouldn't want them on my 20s for reasons stated earlier, but I may on my 30s.

Thanks for the extra pics. Yes, the Ranger Plates work very well. They are an overmolded process, similar to the method Hogue Stocks employ. It's a molded plastic plate, much like the standard plate. In fact it very well may be a standard plate mold they start out with. Then they are run through an overmolding process that creates the relatively soft, pliable "loop". They are very rugged.

From what I'm seeing in your photos the standard Ranger Plates would work, albeit you would have to install them backwards.  ???

A note concerning my OP.... Otto Firearms is closed......... I tried last week to place an order and got a message that James was closing his business to enter into the US Navy.

He was a good guy to do business with and I wish him well in his service.

Founds this on the G3 20 round Pmags

More Information:

Modified internal and external geometry also permits operation with a wide range of non Colt-spec platforms such as the HK® 416 and MR556A1, M27 IAR, British SA-80, FN® SCAR™ MK 16/16S, and others. A redesigned bolt catch notch in the rear of the magazine provides increased bolt catch clearance, while an over-travel stop on the spine helps ensure the magazine will not over-insert on compatible weapons.
 
The PMAG 20 GEN M3 features a long-life USGI-spec stainless steel spring for commonality, four-way anti-tilt follower and constant-curve internal geometry for reliable feeding, and simple tool-less disassembly to ease cleaning. In addition, an included pop-off Impact/Dust Cover can optionally be used to minimize debris intrusion and protect against potential damage during storage and transit. Low profile ribs and new aggressive front and rear texture gives positive control of the GEN M3 in all environments, and a paint pen dot matrix has been added to the bottom panel of the body to allow easy marking by the end user for identification. The new, easy to disassemble flared floorplate aids extraction and handling of the magazine while providing improved drop protection, but is slightly slimmer than before for better compatibility with tight double and triple magazine pouches.

Made in U.S.A.

IMPORTANT NOTE --- Re: Magpul P-Mags

I just found out in a class to avoid the colored mags, they tend to chip.  It is rare, but it does happen.  I had a malfunction and the instructor passed that on along with the observation that only black plastic mags are offered in the new gen mags now.  My mag was a tan mag...pretty embarrassing standing in a class line with your mag laying on the ground between your feet...

They chip where they engage the lock....not a good thing.  As they age it will only get worse.

So, all of my colored pmags I use only for training and plinking now.  I swapped them out of the bug-out bag.

Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.
It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.
