Anyone have a source, or know of another model that will retrofit?

I have three mags, followers, springs and floor-plate retainers, but no floor plates.

my searches have not been fruitful.....

Perhaps the floorplate from a Triple K mag will interchange, if so they should sell parts. Someone here must have both an original and aftermarket they could check to see if any problems.

With a little poking around, I have discovered that floor plates from the Star M40 and M43 Firestar pistol magazines will fit a BM, without changing the inner retainer plate.

They are a tad loose vertically, but a gentle squeezing down of the rolled lip of the floor plate in a vise cures that.

The only significant difference is that the original BM magazine floorplate has a front lip protruding well beyond the forestrap of the frame. With the Firestar floorplate, it's flush.

I have spare Firestar floorplates for sale @ $5 ea. if anyone is interested; please send me a PM.
