Los Osos, CA -( Apex Tactical Specialties announced the introduction of the new Apex J-Plate Base Pad for the Magpul GL9 PMAG.

The Apex J-Plate directly replaces the factory base pad on the Magpul GL9 PMAG (MAG546 and MAG550) and is black hardcoat anodized machined aluminum. The J-Plate is easily installed, utilizing the factory retention plate, and features 10 laser marked identification dots. The base pad adds additional weight for faster magazine changes, but does not increase magazine capacity.
