Building a rifle has long been the assembly of a series of compromises that lead to the final product. As the market grows and manufacturers redesign components for better performance, we get closer to being able to build the perfect rifle. Triggers, upper and lower receiver components and barrels get a lot of attention, but now there are even manufacturers putting extra effort into the production of parts that used to be considered too insignificant to mess with. The latch plate is one of those things that has long been neglected in favor of larger, components, but anyone who’s dealt with a badly manufactured end plate knows those small parts get awfully important when you need them and they fail. 2A Armament’s QD End plate is a quality answer to the long neglected issues that shooters have with old fashioned latch plates.

The 2A QD End Plate isn’t a clumsily forged or pressed piece of tin or a too heavy hunk of steel. This end plate features the lightweight durability that you only get from precision machining high-quality aluminum billet to the desired specs to fit AR-15 and AR-10 platforms. This end plate features a hollowed pocket design for reduced weight without compromising the integrity of the plate. A quick detach sling socket is integrated into the piece for never-fail reliability and the flexibility that only QD components can offer in the field.

The 2A Armament QD End Plate weighs in 70% under the weight of traditional stamped steel plates, tipping the scales at just 0.15 oz. It features a quality anodized finish that won’t peel or corrode, even when used in harsh, real-world conditions.
