There are several companies out there willing to sell you unsafe rifle plates. If they are not listed and shown to be compliant on the NIJ website (click NIJ logo above) always ask to see their ballistic testing data. Be sure it is current and from a NIJ Authorized Laboratory like Oregon Ballistics Labs, Chesapeake or Whites Labs. Some retailers just don't post it, ignore your requests or may provide you an altered version. Look for missing data or suspicious areas on the form that appear to have been covered up. The company or brand name should be on the form as well as the testing job number. Most importantly, the back face measurement is critical and should not be removed or omitted from the test sheet. This is where many Non-NIJ listed armor companies have issues. The NIJ standard is no more than 44mm (on the first shot for Level IV and for the first two shots on Level III). Back face measurements above 44mm are NOT in conformance with NIJ 0101.06 standards. Many may claim their armor is tested to NIJ standards but don't state whether or not they even passed. It's your life that matters. If the price is too good to be true, be sure to do your due diligence.
