Locator plate

I have my 550b set up for 45 auto, today I decided to switch over to 357 mag...All went well until I tried to remove the 45 locator plate. Had to remove the primer drip chute and put a pin up through the screw hole to knock the locator plate out. Now I am attempting to install the 357 mag plate with no luck, should these not just drop in place. Seems to me they do one my 650.

RE: Locator plate

The 650 locator plate and the 550 plate are different lengths.

RE: Locator plate

The 650 locator plates are longer than the 550 locator plates. If you're going to use it exclusively on the 550, then you could cut it shorter and round the corners some to match the length and profile of your other (45 auto) locator plate, but I wouldn't do it if you are planning on using it on the 650 again.
