Rifle Plates - Ultra-light Mil-Spec SAPI


Ballistics 100% Made in the USA
Note:  Export of Level IV Rifle Plates from the U.S. usually requires an export permit
(Level III plates can often be exported without an export permit.)

Ceramic Rifle Plates are Not Returnable

Mil-Spec SAPI Protection
(must have an Interceptor mil spec or Level III-A vest to get the rated Level of protection)

SAPI Cut Ceramic Rifle Plates
Mil Spec SAPI Cut (aka SPEAR) for both Front AND Back

A very lightweight Silicon Carbide plate that exceeds mil-spec SAPI ballistic performance, and passes the rigorous mil-spec drop test!

You don't get the full Level IV Armor-Piercing rating with a plate this light, as it is designed to stop common military rifle threats when used with an Interceptor OTV / IBAS or Level III-A vest supporting.

The US Military SAPI (Small Arms Protective Insert) mil-spec requires survivability of 3 hits total from:

     •  AK-47
     •  M-16 or
     •  Dragunov


Tested to Stop:

Caliber
Bullet
Typical Weapon
7.62 X 39mm

Armor Piercing Incendiary

AK-47
5.56 x 45mm
.223

M-16
7.62 51mm
.308 Winchester
FMJ
aka NATO ball
Battle Rifles and Machine Guns
7.62 54mm Russian Light Penetrating Steel (R LPS) Dragunov Sniper Rifle

Note that Level IV is a little tougher round to stop than the SAPI mil-spec. Level IV is a .3006 Armor-Piercing round, while the SAPI test is for the slower Russian Light Penetrating Steel round.

Why You Want BulletProofME to Ship Your Ceramic Plates


ANY Ceramic Rifle Plate can be damaged if abused - especially if dropped on its' corner. They are not delicate, like fine tea china, but, on the other hand, FedEx and UPS are notorious for being rough with packages.

So, every Ceramic Plate we ship FedEx or UPS is bubble-wrapped, and then DOUBLE-boxed with lots of padding to survive rough handling. We overpack, so that it would take a lot of obvious abuse to do any damage.

We stake our reputation of over ten years on doing it right.  Don't buy a plate that just gets thrown in a box and shipped out.
