Default MOLLE Magazine Pouches for AK-47

I am having a hard time finding affordable ACU MOLLE compatible magazine pouches. I see a lot of M4/M16 that say they will hold AK-47 magazines. Will they?

Thanks.

No, there isn't. There are a few long threads on here about it. IMO the only good AK mag pouches are the original euro ones, but they won't fit on a MOLLE or ALICE belt.

All the pouches marketed AK/M4 are made for AR mags. AK mags may fit in there, but not snug or with dividers.

There are some good AK chest rigs out there.

You need the ones that fold over and button (they have velcro also). I got some they all hold either 3 AR mags (2 P-mags) or 2 AK mags. The velcro has to hold them usually because the buttons don't line up with 2 full ak mags in the pouch so I sewed buckles onto mine. If you can do the sewing work it's worth it instead of paying $50+ for marked up one's someone else did the same thing to.

I don't recommend gear unless i've used it for awhile. I found two pouches that work and work well. They're not cheap but they are 100% made in America and they are built for real combat/SHTF use.

Tactical Tailor makes a " Universal Mag Pouch " which holds two AK mags very secure. They are built well and you can adjust them with shock cords to hold the mags nice and tight for traveling or open them up a bit for fast, easy access.

High Speed Gear has an " Universal Mag Pouch " as well. This is what i'm using right now because the pouches have Fastex closures which gives extra security.
The pouches also have the shock cords and velcro closures which you can use instead of the Fastex buckles if you anticipate contact and want the ability to grab your mags quick.

I'm not a big fan of velcro but a feature i like on the High Speed Gear pouches is they added some material which covers the velcro so it's silent if you choose not to use it to secure your mag pouch flap. The pouches use the Tactical Tailor MALICE Clips to attach to your rig. MALICE Clips are the best way to attach MOLLE gear.

Before i spent the coin on these products i asked several guys i know that are and/or were in Iraq and the Stan about them. I know alot of guys over there and most of them have ditched the issue gear and bought Tactical Tailor gear. These guys have put their gear through the test and it holds up so their word holds iron.

I have my pouches on Tactical Tailor's 2 piece MAV with the Tactical Tailor X Harness. Yeah their gear isn't cheap but if a poor swamptown boy like myself can save up the coin to buy the best, you can too.

I have my mag pouches off to the side so i can go prone or low crawl easier. I don't like gear on my chest. It's nice if you're in Urban Ops inside rooms but hit the deck or low crawl with gear on your chest and tell me how that works for ya.

I can post some pics of my rig later if you're interested. My camera is charging at this time. BTW: I have no financial holdings with either company and i'm not employed by either.

paladin, here's some pics of my pouches.

High Speed Gear Mag pouch. This is a Double mag pouch. Two pouches together as One unit. Each pouch will hold 2 AK mags for a total of 4 each unit.



Pouch open. I have my mags upside down but you can put them feed lips up if you want.



Velcro cover for silent operation.



Velcro cover open for high speed operation.


Sure you can buy some cheap made in china gear or European surplus but if you ever find yourself in a combat/survival/SHTF do you really want to trust your life on cheap junk ?

Default ACU Sale

Not sure about AK pouches, but i have several pouches from these guys for m-4/m-9 etc. These guys are having a sale on all ACU pouches, and the majority of their stuff is from the big name manufacturers.

I think my Phoenix ones from US Cav were $10 a piece for 2 connected double mag pouches. I bought 2, fits 4 AK mags (worked for both my 74 and 47 mags) or 6 M16 mags. Actually a good design, MOLLE, high value IMO.

Wish I could include a pic now but AK Files makes you reduce the size of your pic damn near to 1x1 pixel! I'll get a pick of mine here soon.

I like the Condor m4/AK double pouch in multicam. The pouches / gear condor makes with the multicam seems more quality than the rest.

You sir are incorrect there are many molle pouches for ak-47!!!!!!

http://www.frontowiec.com/index.php?...al-flora-molle
Konrad is great i do alot of business with him takes about ten days to get mail from poland
Dmitry has alot of molle too always email him and ask him what he has

You are also wrong about alice ak47 mag pouches just look at my blog below I use an alice clip for a splave 4 mag carrier on my russian M-32 tarzan so you can go with russian molle or russian alice and many platforms accept both

http://www.soviet-propaganda.com/ind...products_id=41

There is so much fucking russian molle shit you could spend 6 months pay and still not have it all

Default $50!? WTF!

Instead of spending $50 on two of them, go buy the Condor ones that are like $15 and sew buckles on them yourself like I did:




Triple stitched mine while I was at it.

Sorry I have been absent and not posting, I'll try to do better for my brothers in arms.

I got to say that I like all of the suggestions and will post what I get (this week). I also found some at Tuff Products. I've used their speed strips in my revolver and their carry pouch for xtra strips when CCW. All in all the design is different and the price is the same.

Here is the link:
http://www.tuffproducts.com/product....cat=277&page=1

Not sure I would carry on my LBV, but would be good on the range bag or gun bag.

Here's an AK-47 molle mag pouch I came across, I've never used it so I have no idea of the quality.

Well, cool I guess, but the last one is not in stock and the first link involves ordering from Europe, which can be hit or miss. Good to see it's being made somewhere.

Just read todays review by Travis Haley on his JTT forum of a chest rig and AK pouches by UW Gear which have some interesting features.

Dont know anything else about their stuff but looks pretty good FWIW

got 'em yesterday. pretty fast from serbia. really good condition. no visible wear. one has a little surface rust on the belt clip. velcro and snap closure. nice fit with metal 30. i don't have any polys, these will probably be real tight with plastic. i'm very pleased, will probably order a couple more.

I have some issue double m4 mag puches and ak mags dont fit very well in them. I would avoid the double m4 pouches. They just piss me off . I think ak47world has some molle compatible pouches .

AK specific Molle pouches, I really like em, the AR version also fits my 223 Weigers perfectly. Hell I even got a single stack 45 for my TTC mags...

The design carries more mags in less space than any other I've seen yet.

file pic off the websight so you get an idea what I'm talkin about ..... top link is for the 8 inline, bottom link is for 5 inline

also a coupla good reviews on youtube if your interested, 1000 denier, mil spec straps and shit, pretty good stuff, the velcro cover is sealable open for quick draw or removeable totally. they make a shoulder strap for em too if thats your thing.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us


ETA: sorry, didn't click all the web links till after I posted and was not aware it was already listed, but that dosen't keep it from being good stuff... leaveing the pic and links up for others who did the same as me and just read thru not clicking past the first 10 or so links.

8 loaded 30s? it needs wheels. 8 loaded 7.62 30s is hugely heavy!
