AR550 Body Armor Side Plates Set of Two

Our AR550 armor hits the “sweet spot” in the Brinnell Hardness (BHN) range. With a core hardness of approximately 545-560 BHN, we have found our ballistically rated variant of AR550 that we use is perfect for defeating higher velocity threats, while not exposing the armor plate to extreme stress due to forming.

With higher velocity rifle threats commonly present throughout the United States, we’ve developed this AR550 armor to specifically defeat some common threats such as 5.56 x 45 XM193, 5.56 x 45 M855 /SS109 and 7.62 x 51 (.308 Winchester) at a rated velocity of 3,100 fps or less. Additionally, we’ve successfully defeated these threat profiles from Close Quarters Battle (CQB) distances…repeatedly!

Configuration: This armor comes as a pair, meaning you will receive two side plates. Choose from either 6″ x 6″ (small) or 6″ x 8″ (large)

  1. Very impressed

    Posted by Bernard Keenan on Mar 15th 2017

    Quality fit and finish of the shooters cut 550 10x12s and 6x8s were perfect. Customer service is outstanding. Liked the ballistic certification report enclosed with the shipment. Shipping was lightning fast 48 hrs Arizona to Pa. I was so impressed with everything I ordered the $199.99 package deal for my wife just in case TSHTF.

  3. Plates

    I am happy with the fit and finish. Spartan seems to produce 3 plus plates above their rating and thickness to ensure they are not defeated easily.
