Unrated Steel Trauma Plate, 10"x12", Single Curve, Shooters Cut
This steel trauma plate is similar to other Buffalo Armory steel plates, but slightly thinner at 1/8 of an inch. It has no informative labels and is likely an experimental model given out to body armor dealers to gauge their response.
This hard insert is untested by any NIJ certification standards and cannot be sold as body armor. Since it is thinner than a Level lll plate, it would almost certainly not pass that high certification standard.
The most reasonable use for this insert would be as protection from blunt weapons in a riot or corrections situation. It may very well be capable of withstanding greater impacts and strikes, but there is officially no testing done to confirm this.
