The Moon Clip Flatness Plate allows you to check the flatness of your moon clips before you load them. The honed white marble surface is bright but low glare to aid inspection of moon clips. And marble has a low coefficient of linear thermal expansion (λ) and low thermal conductivity (α) that maintains flatness stability with temperature changes.
• Very Flat Honed White Surface
• Low Thermal Expansion & Low Thermal Conductivity
• 3″ x 3″ Surface: Enough Space for Moon Clips of Any Caliber or Round Count
• Protective Storage Box Included
Tip! Check the flatness of all moon clips before loading … even new, unused moon clips!
Tip! This flatness plate can also be used by gunsmiths to check the flatness of small firearm parts (e.g. hammers, triggers, etc.)
Tip! Use as a surface on which to place your case gauge when checking COL!
NOTE: Marble is a natural material and there will be variations in color and veining from one plate to the next. The edges and back of the marble may also have small chips due to the sawing processes. These variations do not affect the flatness of the honed marble surface. It is recommended to perform all flatness testing near the center of the plate.

I came to this realization. When shooting a match you want to do your best. To do that you prepare mentally and physically and improve yourself through practice. You try to use the best gear you can as there is nothing more annoying than gear failure during a match. With semi autos you are constantly defining good, operable magazines and you have magazines that you use for matches, those that are only for practice or general hard use and those that are just junk that you loan out to shooting buddies. Who ever thinks about moon clips?
Well, I should have been thinking about moon clips. When I started using the Flatness Plate it was very interesting to find out how many of my moon clips weren’t flat anymore. Just like magazines, I now have MCs that are for matches, for practice or hard use and loaners. Why not eliminate every negative variable you can before a match? This tool helps with that.
