I'm looking to buy a transferable M240 side plate for a build.

Thank you in advance for helping me locate one for sale.

The only Class 2 manufacturer (now basically retired) who ever made registered M240 or Mag 58 side plates prior to 1986, was/is Douglas L Oefinger. He started in CT and is now in FL. Last price tag for said sideplates was/is $75,200. He posts stuff for sale once in a while either here on Sturmgewehr or on Subguns. Good luck, DLO is retired and the plates are his 401k.

Just curious, it's been about a month and a half.

Did you ever find your right side plate?

I think DLO usually sold them as built into guns, rather than as a plate. You might need to buy a full setup. A DLO MAG-58 upgraded into M240B by OOW sold for $125k a few months ago.
