tight epic stg44 pouches

Postby dadio » Fri Jun 08, 2012 2:23 pm

got a set of these today and try'd the mags for my agm stg44 in them and they were quite tight to get the mags in and then almost impossible to get out due to the metalwork at the base of the mag snagging on the seam at the bottom of the pouch :? .if you invert the mags they go in and out easy but i just have a vision of an empty mag and a pouch full of bb's :oops: .has anybody else had this problem? im planning on giving them a soak an stretch to see if that helps.

Maybe he converted his mags to low or midcaps. Then yes, you need more than one mag ;)

Must say if i have a 200 rnd ammo limit i'd rather have fifty rounds in 4 mags than 200 in 1 mag.
A. its more real with mag changes(although still more than a real mag).
B. you know roughly how much you have left.
C. the German pouches have three cells each and look silly empty.

They are a useful place to store Mark Vs, bars of chocolate, spare batteries...
