Uzi mag pouches

img_0286I  bought some magazine pouches from Maxpedition for my HK mags and although they are listed as ‘double’ magazine pouches you can really only fit one HK mag in there. Trying to stack two in a pouch just ain’t gonna happen. Not really Max’s fault, HK mags are just damn bulky. Their double MP5 pouches, though, do indeed take two Uzi mags per pouch. I’ll wind up picking up another of the Maxpedition Active Shooter Bags and festoon it with a few of these pouches. Normally, I’m a fan of overkill but according to my math, the bag will accommodate three double-2mag pouches, and two single-2mag pouches for a total of 16 32-round mags or…wait for it….512 rounds of ammo. And that’s not even including the spare ammo and gear that gets carried in the bag itself. For the first time in my life, after reviewing the bag and ammo pouches, I said out loud to myself “Ok, that might be a bit much.” But, dammit, when you gotta run out the door with just whatever you can carry it’s hard to not want every stick of ammo you can grab….at least, until you have to carry it any significant distance.

When I put a similar bag together for the PTR, that was easier because each pouch only held one mag instead of two. As a result, the bag only has five mags on the exterior. A lighter package, overall. It still, though, carries enough ammo and mags to be handy. (Let’s see….five 20-round mags in pouches, one 50-rd drum, a few spare mags in the main compartment…..)

The pouches I originally wanted were from Blackhawk. They had a very nice triple-mag pouch that I liked very much but it seems to have been discontinued in the green color. A shame, because I really liked this particular pouch.

As it turns out, there’s an abundance of airsoft gear out there that would fit what I’m looking for but since it’s gear mostly made for gaming I am suspect about it’s durability and functionality. I want stuff that can have the crap beaten out of it and still function reasonably well.

This little gem from Olongapo Outfitters looks like it’s pretty close to what I’m after as well. By the time I finish adding pouches to the Maxpedition bag it’ll be very similar. Not to get sidetracked, but I find it amazingly entertaining that they make a similar system for the Garand.

Speaking of Uzi….someone posted a link in the comments that was too good not to pass on: Running The Uzi

  1. I own several Olongapo Outfitters products. Very well made gear. I’m also a Garand owner but go with repro cartridge belts from another excellent source – At the Front. Not cheap, but excellent stuff!

  2. Do you run a bag for each platform in addition to some sort of chest rig/ lbe or whatever? Or so some get one and not the other?

    I’m leaning towards a bag for each platform. Nothing outrageous…just mags, ammo, cleaning kit, small parts, and a couple gun-specific tools. In theory, that means ..uhm…four bags…one for the PTR’s, one for the AK’s, one for the AR’s, and one for the Uzi’s. (Although I’m getting ahead of myself on the Uzi..only have one at the moment although I really want one of these SBR’d for the wife.)

    This isn’t as expensive an option as it sounds. Each bag is, essentially, a range bag….which I’d wind up needing anyway. Plus, I get a fair deal on the Maxpedition stuff from a fella I know who is a vendor for it. I just want something where if I have to grab all my crap in a hurry, I can grab [firearm] outta the rack, sling a bag over one shoulder (or hurl it into the truck) and know pretty much everything I need to short-term support that firearm is in there.

  3. OO makes excellent stuff and they are nice folks to deal with. I have one of their M1 Carbine sling bag type pouches, and one butt mount Carbine pouch – both are probably so well made they will outlast me.

  4. IMI uzi mags for sale
    in good condtion
    asking 20,00 eatch

    buy 50 free shiping

    This would be much more appealing if ‘condition’, ‘each’ and ‘shipping’ were spelled properly. I’m not sending $1000 to someone who cant be bothered to spell their offer correctly…makes me think my package will get lost because someone shipped it to ‘mnotnaa’. Twenty bucks for a used mag isn’t exactly a smoking bargain. Here’s 50, with free ‘shiping’, for $290. Thats saves me, oh, around $710 dollars from $20 ‘eatch’. Or buy ‘em individually for $9.50 from the same source.
