In that case a mag bag is the most practical solution.

30 round pouch I think mate. The 20 round mags are only about 6", the 30 rounders are around 8.5". Have you got the King arms 110 round mags?

The Americans never made a 5 cell 30 round mag pouch.
They made a 3 cell, rare as in Europe.
Thats why a thompson mag bag or GP bag is the best solution.

Agreed. A GP bag is well handy. It will carry loads of mags plus other gear. I've yet to see a photo of a mag pouch in use in the ETO.

A mag bag is also the most authentic solution.

The only original pouch for the 30 round mag was a 3 cell.
The only 5 cell pouch was for the 20 round.

US Ranger in France armed with an M1928A1, 30 round mags in a 5-cell 20 round pouch. Not a very common sight, but it did happen.

Thats the way many people carry the mid/low cap airsoft mags which are 30rnd size. Myself included. With the flap buttoned down like that its quite secure.
What it isnt is a dedicated 5 cell pouch for the 30 round mags.

Can you even get 20rnd sized Thompson airsoft mags?
I use a 3x30rnd pouch and a mag bag. The mag bag is probably the most useful bit of kit I have,use it for mags,pyro or use it as a dump bag.

Yes, TM hi caps, they hold 190 rounds. Fit perfectly in either a mag mag or a 5 cell pouch.
