Re: Side Plate Replacement

I don't know that we ever determined what lockplate you have. Does it have a bevel on the edge? Does your stock have two opposing 'flats' at the lock area? If it is neither of those, then you may have some interference that is not allowing the plate to seat fully? Buying a stripped plate will be cheaper - but I'd find out what is REALLY wrong before I just started buying parts at random.
