Vietnam style M16 mag pouches?

Postby silentdeath25 » Tue May 22, 2012 1:56 pm

I'm getting a bunch of Vietnam style mid cap mags for my MK12 but I can't find MOLLE pouches made specifically for the VN mags. Can anyone give me a link to some? Thanks

I dont think there is a specific pouch for 20 round AR mags, AFAIK. Your best bet is to probably just get normal M4 pouches and make a magpul out of paracord and duct tape in order to make the shorter mag easier to pull out of the pouch. You could try 7.62 pouches, because they are shorter vertically than M4 pouches, but the Vietnam mags could slide around too much. Hope you find a good solution.

also, you can use the standard m4/m16 pouches, just stuff something down in it to make the mag stand up high enough.

No, there are 20 round mag pouches. there are 2 types i know of, m56 and m67. the m67 are nylon vietnam mag pouches, you can normally find for about 20 bucks, but it depends where you buy them, the m56 are canvus and much more rare to come by, there around 150-250 dollar range, if you can find them.

Seeing as MOLLE wasn't in use during the Vietnam war, it's not likely a search for a MOLLE Vietnam mag pouch won't help.

Try manufacturers like tactical tailor or ATS. they make shallow 5.56 pouches that some of my fellow team leaders have for 20rd tracer mags. searching "20rd magazine" is way more specific than " Vietnam mag"
