How's the fit with the FS mags in those pouches, btw? Is it a pain to remove the shorter mag from that AK Pouch?

danssoslow - I'll pass as the other residents of my house might not appreciate it. The youngest is just 4mos old, so it will have to wait

the mags fit the pouches just fine . . . they are swimming in them a bit, making it easy to reach fingers in to get them

Any idea if an m4/m16 mag pouch like this would work?

I'd be nervous to mount them upside down but that's me.

I had a weird idea for using a vertical pack/harness to carry the straight mags.

Say you've got some 140 ct (maybe even 100 ct) pods missing lids. I think we've all seen them abandoned at most fields.
- Cut a groove up one side for the notch on the backside of the mags.
- Secure the pod in a pack sleeve so it won't slide out.
- Mag slides right in. Mag doesn't rotate because of notch, paint can't get knocked out accidentally (or if it does, it's kinda in a pod).

Just tried it, and it would work, except for the wider bottom end of the mag. BUT a pod with a widened mouth (got a gxg, valken, and zephyr brand pods that are all like that), and it fits great. The widened mouth lets the mag butt fit perfect, but narrows so the mag won't slide too far up into the pod (well, the groove for the notch could end right where you want the mag to stop). Or, use a pod that isn't wide at the mouth so the butt protrudes, makes it easier to grab.

That mag pouch looks nice to mount up side down like a traditional pod

Can you take some pics, Nerdcore? The slot thing is what I'm interested in; but the whole deal would be interesting to see.

Don't have any pods i want to cut up right now. But this saturday i'll probably find one.

edit: yes, i do have a pod i want to cut up right now.

Didn't cut the groove as far as i'd like, but it's late so didn't use a dremel, just a box cutter and some sheet metal sheers. Pod walls are thin, so they flexed too much after the cut and the mag turned freely in it, which i didn't want. Wedged a small product manual in there, which proved to be the perfect filler. After seeing this for real, i dunno if it's a great idea on the field. It'd be hard to return mags to the pod housings since the groove has to line up. I wouldn't choose this over a mag pouch. And i'm sure glad i won't miss that pod.
