Redball Magazine plate carrier and pouches

I Modified my black horizontal Redball 20rd magazine chest rig into a basic plate carrier complete with back plate bag; and then I decided to build a couple pouches, first pouch was an attempt at doing a vertical, side by side pouch with bungee cord retention, hated it.. so made a 2nd pouch that is much more conventional; holds 4 20rd magazines in a boxy pouch that is kinked on the sides, and has a center divider, and two 3/4 coverage flaps over each pair of magazine.

View of outside of both carriers; the rear carrier has MOLLE strips for attachment of hydration pouch or small gear; or even butt pack on bottom row.

The plate carrier will fit up to 9×12 plates on both front and back. It is basically a simple armor carrier with magazine pockets sewn to the front , and utility/first aid pockets sewn on the sides.

17622557_10212695341283068_589020450_o

My first attempt at a MOLLE 995 20rd pouch for the 20 rd Redball magazines; the idea was to have elastic retention and not a lot of fabric, but it is a failure here, due to the extreme splay and sticking far out away from the platform it attaches to.

17623062_10212695525247667_417350286_o

good view of how far it sticks out from a MOLLE belt; due to being bottom heavy and not having a lot of retention up top other than the elastic cordage

17571744_10212695525287668_871548173_o

Mounted to the MOLLE belt I have, it is not really good here.

Another view of the top half; mounted by the same MALICE clips and same style webbing on the back of the pouch, as the pouch retains the magazines better; the whole thing is far stabler and easier to use.

Been busy with life, two new rigs!

Been busy with life lately…. here are a couple updates!

Indy style 500D Coyote brown double sided Satchel/Bandolier, carries up to 10 20rd magazines, and 12 10rd magazines for Hi Point carbines, but can also be used to carry SMG/Glock stick magazines if they can fit in the elastic loops.

Next up, a Split front MOLLE chest rig out of 1000D Woodland Cordura scraps that weren’t perfectly cut; using IDF style spring loaded cam buckles for closure, and ALICE LC-2 Enhanced ruck straps for the shoulder straps with 2 additional spring loaded cam buckles, all of which came from scavenged/surplus ALICE LC straps. SPecs of the rig; 8 MOLLE columns and 7 rows, with no gap, or 4 rows plus 3 rows in between the 4 main rows

With IDF style single pull cord knotted into both buckles. Very quick release on the straps, and easy adjustments for size

20170101_000453

Showing one set up; 12 AR magazines in 4 pouches, and 2 medic pockets, the rig is capable of accepting both MOLLE and ALICE attachments, as well as Bianchi’s UM84 clip system

20170101_115809

showing another set up; with the front closed up. again, 2 Tactical Tailor Universal Mag pouches, 2 TT grenade/small utility pockets, 2 canteen covers, and 2 IDF small pouches connected via ALICE clips, and finally, one large 200rd SAW ammo pouch for dump pouch duty.  I am on the look out for two more of the TT Universal Mag Pouches in Woodland, but may be able to just use two USGI M4 double pouches, or just get more short MALICE clips and tie ALICE pouches on there.

 

Coyote tan 8-cell 995 rig and black Plate carrier rig

Built a Coyote tan 8-cell vertical mag rig for 4 Redball 20rd mags, and 4 10rd Factory 995 mags, and then built a 5 20rd, 5-10 10rd vertical Plate Carrier clip-on rig for two customers!dscf0881

On olive green fabric, showing the tan X harness, tan webbing and mags loaded.

I also modified a customer’s black slick plate carrier to accept the black 8 cell vertical rig, and built a new 10 cell direct-attach rig. I added 4x Fastex buckles to the Plate Carrier, this was the least invasive method for the user, did not need to rip seams to attach buckles

20160714_162850

Back 3/4 view, the user utilizes the standard back strap of the chest rig, and the diagonal webbing from the black 8 cell rig goes up to the two 45 degree buckles. THe 8 cell rig is capable of being used on its own with its H harness, and the carrier can keep the buckles fastened/unused.

I made a 5 cell plate carrier rig next, with no snaps, but velcro attachment, back strap attachment, and a simplified upper strap attachment, for direct attachment to the black plate carrier. I overestimated the size of the dividers needed, and now the 5 front cells can have up to 2 9mm Hi Point mags, OR 1 double stack pistol mag in each cell, and the back 5 cells are generously sized for the Redball magazines. With this cleaner panel layout and the size, it does not extend past the edges of the plate carrier.

Front 4 cell panel showing velcro flaps and velcro attachment. It looks like I was off on the bottom stitching, but that is a result of not loading the cells with weight, it is even when loaded.

The material used is 500D Cordura in both black and coyote tan.

Chest rigs for Redball 995 mags

Made a couple chest rigs in black 1000D vinyl backed Cordura for the new Redball Magazines for the Hi Point 995/995TS 9mm carbines; First one is a horizontal carrier, with utility pouches that fit 100rd organizer boxes, or other small stuff. The other one is a vertical 8-cell carrier that accommodates 4x 20rd Redball magazines and 4x 10rd factory magazines.

They are based on traditional chest rig designs from China and South Africa, but tailored for the particular magazines.

DSCF0873

Horizontal 4-magazine chest rig with utility pockets on ends, single layer construction and layout is based on a SADF chest rig but with horizontal magazine pockets as opposed to vertical;

DSCF0871

Unloaded, You can see how the magazine shape is unique and does not lend itself to other magazine pouch designs or normal retention methods

DSCF0869

Close up of magazine retention system; hidden snaps and doubled over 1.5″ webbing. I got the idea after looking at one of my knife sheaths and figured that since the ends and mid plates are larger than the magazine body, it would be useful to have a similar retention method, and so far it has worked beautifully.

DSCF0868

Straps snapped in place. I did this set up to make it easy to open and draw with the left hand.

DSCF0874

Detailshot of the utility pocket. They are shallower than the usual SKS/Shotgun ammo pockets I have made, but fits a 100rd 9mm organizer box with some room to spare for tools or keys or other things. Can be used to carry first aid kit as well.

DSCF0875

With my MOLLE MIcro chest rig for pistol magazines and the prototype bandolier made of 420D pack cloth scraps. Yes that is my 995 Classic carbine with Primary Arms 1-4x scope on it.

DSCF0877

My other chest rig, vertical 8 cell magazine carrier, next to the Horizontal one. It is based on a combination of Chi-Com and R.A.C.K. chest rig designs (R.A.C.K. rectangle panel, Chi-Com one piece magazine/clip pocket panel) with two different fastening systems; a simple wrap around retention strap for the 4 Redball magazines, and a narrow flap strap for the 4 factory 10rd magazines. I only own 1 factory 10 round magazine at the moment.

DSCF0878

Close up of the short pouch showing the factory 10 rd magazine. I can also put in a Leatherman multi-tool in the same size pocket. bonus!)

DSCF0879

Detailclose up of the chest rig panel with the Redball magazines fastened in. The flag patches on both of them are from Universal Shooting Sports Forum , wherein I am a member.

DSCF0880

Unloaded except for the one 10 rd magazine. It is a simple rig. I will be making about 6 of these rigs in Coyote Brown with either tan binding tape and webbing or dark brown binding tape and webbing.

MOLLE Yucca Pack, modded to a big Lumbar pack!

My small MOLLE Yucca daypack is now doing duty as a beefy lumbar pack on a MOLLE waist belt set up and H harness set up… the main modifications involved were very extensive, basically a whole panel of MOLLE webbing on the back of the pack, plus 4 Ladder-loc buckles at specific locations to function better as a lumbar pack.. With some adjustment on how I attached my MOLLE Sustainment Pouches, I found that it functions better, and gives me some space in the main sack and on the outside… instead of taking up all 12 MOLLE slots on the perimeter for the two Sustainment Pouches, I have spaced it so that each pouch only takes up 5 slots each (for 10 slots), and a gap of 2 MOLLE slots in between for my Nalgene carrier and small misc item pouch. This also provides me with a convenient route for the flap straps..

DSCN2354

The pack. The top stuff sack houses my hammock and bugnet and suspension, while the MOLLE Sustainment pouches each hold the kelty topquilt and the hammock under pad insulation, and the main sack holds my clothing. The nalgene carrier in the lower middle houses an IKEA kitchen caddy turned into a wood burning stove, and the Buschraft Outfitters 10×10 silnylon tarp in Coyote brown.

DSCN2355

View of the waist belt set up; the large pouch holds my food and cook set, while the smaller pouch holds my first aid kit and fire kit, then between the canteen and the pouches are two modified 40mm ammo pouches, one holds my 4.5″ blade knife, the other holds a small 2AA Angle-head flashlight. Obviously there are two water bottles on the belt at the kidney positions.

DSCN2353

Belt opened up, you can see how there’s quite a bit of padding, the belt pad is size Medium, and is basically perfect as a waist belt on this pack system. You can also see the suspension straps for the pack.

DSCN2345

The MOLLE panel for the back, Instead of a normal method of alternating straps, I decided to fill the whole panel with butted straps so that I have basically as many options for attaching it to whatever I want to.

DSCN2352

The upper harness attachment system, what it is, is essentially a load lifter system, the pack’s D-rings are the anchors, while the harness adjuster only serves to locate the top point, and the Ladder-locs on the flap is the main adjusting point.. because I do not have internal stays on the pack, this method is needed to get the pack to ride as close to the back as possible.

DSCN2347

For those wondering how’d I attach the pack to the waistbelt… these are the 4 5″ long MOLLE straps I made up from the scraps I have on hand.

DSCN2356

A pic of the modified 40mm pouch, the only mods needed is the addition of a snap below the original snap to enable me to securely close the flap for better retention of the knife.

MYOG MOLLE Yucca Pack!

Made a MOLLE version of the Boy Scouts Yucca/ Green Bar Bill Pack; using 1000D DCU Cordura scraps….. Since I wanted a day pack that was in between the size of a Recon Buttpack and the size of a normal Schoolbag or the Medium Ruck sack…plus the ability to add or subtract pouches to it….I looked into my sewing fabrics drawer and out came the DCU Cordura material…I did not have enough width to make the pack the way  I make my pouches, but I had enough material to make a pack a little differently; with two side panels sewn to the main panel.

DSCN2170

Bare pack; with straps undone..yes the flap is ridiculously long, but its for a reason

DSCN2176

Flap opened up to show full height of the panel; 6 rows and 6 slots of MOLLE

DSCN2171

Side of pack; with 6 rows and 3 slots of MOLLE; for attachment of whatever you could want. Could thread cord through some slots and use that to compress the sides if needed?

DSCN2172Bottom of pack with 3 rows and 4 slots of MOLLE, for attachment of either MOLLE Waistpack or lashing straps for gear

DSCN2173

Back of pack without shoulder straps attached. The D-rings are for shoulder straps obviously, but they could also be used to strap to a frame or a larger ruck sack if one wanted to.

DSCN2175

Top of pack, showing the “ear flaps” to keep most weather out. I might add snaps to the edges to seal better…

DSCN2174Its like a cave of T-shirts! there’s enough space for up to 3 or 4 days of clothing in there….provided you put the rest of your camp gear outside it…as these next two pics will show!

DSCN2178

All packed up for a summertime/warm weather camp trip! Green sack has my modified Kelty topquilt, and then there’s the freebie Coleman inflatable pad on the bottom…the two squarish pouches holds food, first aid kit, and small batwing tarp. The long horizontal pouch holds tarp stakes, guylines, compass, misc gear.

I have two canteen pouches on this as well;

DSCN2177

The back showing the canteen pouches in use with canteens and cup and canteen stove; and their small pockets hold my Swiss Army Knife, and fire kit. You can see that I am using USGI LC-2 straps for backpacking duty, I could clip the pack to the black webbing harness I have which have two hooks for small packs such as this.

Hope you enjoyed this post!
