Anodized 3D Laser Deep Engraved (LDE) Patterned Rear Plates

LDE stands for laser deep engraving, a process in which a high-pressure laser melts and or evaporates the material in its programed path; The laser leaves behind a pressed in or raised pattern. There are two type of 3D laser deep engraved (LDE) pattern rear plates. One is a regular indented pattern and the other is an inverse of the same pattern, similar to when you take a photo with a film camera you have a negative, the negative when developed produces a positive.

The positive, or the regular pattern has stamped out portions that are the opposite of our inverse patterns. Both versions look cool and provide grip since they both have intended portions.

The LDE pattern rear plates provide more grip. More grip means more control over your firearm and less chance of slipping. The inlay design provides extra texture.

The LDE pattern rear plates are available in four colors with five different pattern designs. The colors available are black, silver, gold and red. The designs available are diamond cut, honey comb, tri-weave, scale & the NDZ logo, all in inverse pattern or original pattern. Our most popular patterns to date are the original diamond cut and the inverse scale.

In addition to our LDE rear plates, we also have anodized flat rear plate replacements without deep engraving available that provide classic sheen and a slick look.  You can still customize and jazz up your firearm in the best way possible with these options.

These are available in a wider range of colors: black, gold, pink, red, purple, blue, silver, green & even cerakote color options. You have the ability to pick from our wide range of over 1,500 images to add to your rear plate to give your firearm pieces an original custom look.

We also have brass rear plates as a new addition to the line up.

I am Geonna, the author of the newest NDZ blogs. My firearms experience is pretty extensive. When I turned twelve, I earned my firearms hunting license and transitioned into competitive rifle shooting two years later. I still maintain my hunters license and compete from time to time in smaller competitions.  Recently I earned my concealed carry permit.

Over the years I have use many firearms. Right now my favorite firearm overall has to be the Sig p365. The recoil isn’t that snappy and it fits in my hand really well.  What fascinates me the most about firearms is the history of how they have developed and improved over the years. I strive to deliver interesting facts about firearms and extend some great NDZ sales to you. So please sit down, relax, and prepare yourself for an interesting read! Thank you!
