    Does anyone know where to find different colored mag base plates for Glocks. I want to be able to ID 9mm from 40. Thank you.

    I have +2's on most of my .40 mags but I also put a piece of blue tape on the back of each mag. I then replaced the back plate on the slide (cant think of the name at the moment) with a blue one to match the mags.

    How does small stampings in the same color as the mag make for QUICK and EASY ID of a mag?

    Just with a quick glance I can tell which of my Glock mags are .40 cal and which are 9mm and what gun is my 9mm and which is .40 from a distance.

    Marking mags for different calibers and different loads is very common.
