    Does anyone know the reason why there is a notch on the right side of the magazine floor plates?  At first I thought I chipped my magazine, but my second mag and my friends two mags also have the crude cut notch.  I hope I'm posting the pic link right...

    It's just the way it's made. It doesn't cause any problems. If the edges are a little rough or snag on your clothing, you can smooth the edges down with a nail file or some sand paper. I did all of mine in less than five minutes.

    I just looked at mine as well, it has the little notch.
    No problems with it though.

    Neither of mine have/had any notch.  They have been replaced with finger extensions, but I never throw anything away. :)

    I never noticed it either until the other day when I switched one of my mags over to a finger extension. When I popped it off, I was like hmmm...Don't know why it's there, but it's normal and doesn't hurt anything.

    No notches on any of my magazines.

    Same here. I thought I chipped it and had no idea how, but when i bought an extra mag the other day, it was the same way. Thought about posting about it, but forgot before I got back to the computer. Anyone know why its there?
