Feed gate pod

Has anyone thought about creating a pod feed gate? My idea is to build a feed gate on the top of a 140 or 100 round pod so that I could use it to reload my stock class feed Phantom. I know that it would not appeal to a lot of stock class players but I play scenario games and I thought this idea might cut down on the number of packs in my closet. With the feed gate pod I could load them in a regular vest without any modifications.

I will try and make a sketch of my idea in a few days.

This has been considered by many a' DIY-er, but the issues is that it wouldn't feed.

I am not talking about making a loader so much as a reloader. So, instead of carrying around 17 or 20 ten round tubes I carry a 140 round pod with the adapter on the top to feed into a stock class feed.

Interesting idea. What do you have in mind for keeping it closed while in your pack, yet feedable when needed?

You also have the issue of feeding properly into the tube.

But it seems easy enough to DIY. Cut a 10rd tube in half and then stick on the lid of a pod, or something along those lines....

I thought they had a pod along these lines already.

They do

And the quality of the pod SUCK really badly. The lid would not stay shut, and the pin that hold the hinge together would just fall apart after 1 use.

Taro is still selling them if anyone is looking for them. I forgot the official name of it thought, it was in the news section last year or so.

Is it a "pursuit pod"? I just bought some for limited paint play/loading ten rounders. They do feel a bit cheap, but I've yet to use them. As for the original question, maybe carry 14 or so ten rounders and reload them from a standard pod?

Maybe take something like a plastic tube, smaller in diameter than a normal pod minus a row of 10 round tubes, and tape the tubes onto that, so that they form a unit the same size as a pod (if anyone got that, Im suprised
Then you could keep them in a regular pod pack, and use one tube at a time.

picture maybe a bit more clear

I like this idea. I had originally thought that it would work to have some kind of twist top the hopper to open and close the pod so that it could feed out a tube like a ten round cut down. But this idea seems more possible.
