    I'm using Eagle AK and M4 FB chest rigs for my various rifle set ups with custom made Esstac yokes. I took an LMS Defense 1-day AK clinic back in march; the yokes were brand new that week, so the class was the first time I got to try one out. It made using the rig much more comfortable. I know the weight of 3 mags + odds/ends isn't anything to complain about, but the classic Eagle "X-straps" were just plain uncomfortable after time. The gear paired with the rifle and sling worked very well together.

    AK rig when i first got it:



    AK rig in current configuration (don't mind the grip ):



    AR rig (pretty much the same):



    the yoke:



    Not pictured is a hydro carrier that attaches to the fastex buckles on my shoulders and secures to the waist strap on the bottom.

    the sling is a Blue Force Gear Vickers. It's shared between my AR and AK until I can buy a 2nd. I've used this in multiple competitions on my AR, and on my AK in this training class and I can't find a single complaint.



    i have my sling attached to the front loop with an H&K snap hook. on the rear, i have it looped around the sling swivel in the stock. to be honest, i don't like the way it's set up in the rear. i have to take my dominant arm out of the sling in order to shoot from my nondominant shoulder. i believe that if i did not have the monsterman grip installed (thanks a lot, CA), then i could have the sling installed closer to the rear end of the receiver around the thin part of the stock, and it would make carrying and transitioning shoulders a lot easier.

    thats about it
    If not me, then who?

    How well do those TAG pistol mag pouches retain the Glock mags, I know that they use a magnet for retention, just wondering as I plan on getting a Glock in the future and my current mag pouches, Eagle FB, will not work with Glock mags and I would like to have pouches that work with all my pistol mags when I get a Glock.

    The TAG pouch is nice you should be able to run both your 1911 mag and glock mags in them. The retention is good with both and the magnet with elastic helps.

    I havenít had any issues with mag retention in any of those situations. The eagle FB pouches are top of the line and you donít have bungee cords or straps in the way.

    First Line:

    Wilderness Instructor CSM Belt
    Atomic Dog Holsters P-Mag pouch (x2)
    Atomic Dog Holsters double Glock mag pouch
    Crossbreed Supertuck IWB for my G19 (not pictured)




    Second Line:

    Eagle/SKD universal chest rig
    SO Tech IFAK pouch










    I love the A.D.H. pouches. The lead time was only two weeks and I think I spent $70 on all three of them shipped, so they were a lot cheaper than similar pouches from Raven. Brian was a great guy to work with and I highly recommend him; so far I've done a few hours worth of dry fire practice, drills, and two afternoons of shooting with them and they have held up great. I wanted something less bulky than the chest rig to run for IDPA (obviously) and CFDCC/FDCC if I ever actually attend a shoot. They are also fairly concealable, and disappear if I wear them under a regular undershirt AND a Columbia-type fishing shirt.

    The only negative things I have to say about the Eagle chest rig is I wish it had more molle on both sides of the pouches, and it could use bungee retention on the two middle mag pouches. I originally bought it for use as an active shooter rig once I finished the academy, but since I got shot that plan was put on hold, which leads me to my next purchase: armor and a carrier. I wish it supported plates, but that's what something like the HSGI Wasatch is for, so I'll probably buy one of those next. For my first piece of real gear, it has held up great (even though I haven't abused it at all... yet) and works very well. I prefer reloading from the belt, but I can just refill the kydex pouches from the chest rig if I want to.

    The SO Tech pouch and some of the supplies I got a great deal on. I got the following for $19 at a machine gun shoot:

    - SO Tech pouch
    - HemCon 4x4 bandage
    - CAT tourniquet
    - NPA (size 28f) and surgi-lube
    - (2) six inch israeli bandages
    - (1) four inch israeli bandage

    I added the nitrile gloves (only put one pair in there because I always have a pair in my pants pocket whether I'm going to the grocery or the gun range, so that's two pairs on my person when I have my gear), kerlix, shears, sharpie marker, 4x4 gauze pads, surgipad, and about 10-12 feet of duct tape wrapped on a plastic Wal-Mart gift card myself, along with six safety pins. Total cost of my med kit was about $25 to myself. I shouldn't have to explain why I have it considering it's a good idea to have around guns and especially since I already caught one last year.

    I'll probably order a holster from him soon. If he could do a G19 + TLR-1, I'd definitely do it as soon as I had the money. However, he said he's going to wait to do lights until there are more gun models offered.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed. Those mags are NOT coming out of the pouch unless you tug on them pretty good. The retention is really good; they pop in and out noticeably.

    I had a bit of "leftover" armor (both soft and hard) after I got out of the service, so I decided to put together the best rig I could on a budget. I did some research and found that a few years ago a company by the name of Tactical Applications Group (not the other TAG) put a side-opening vest together that used IBA soft armor and SAPI plates. It was called the Spartan and had fairly favorable reviews, but wasn't side-plate friendly, so they improved it with the Spartan II, which has a cummerbund that accepts 6x6 AND 6x8 issue plates. They also made it easily adjustable for both width and height, which is nice as I'm fairly skinny but tall (6'4"). It ended up being so popular with Marines that they basing their MTV off of it, but managed to screw that up in typical bureaucratic fashion by changing the armor cut, but that's another story. Anyway, TAG's Spartan II seemed like exactly what I was looking for and managed to score one off Ebay for cheap, and since it was in USMC coyote brown, cheap matching pouches by Eagle were plentiful and easy to find. The only pouch I didn't score off ebay was the BFG Ten-Speed triple M4 pouch, which makes reloads quick and easy, but with positive retention so I don't have to worry about mags flying out. The USMC issue Eagle pistol magazine pouches were too narrow for my G19 mags so I had to slightly modify them but they appear to be designed so that the user can do exactly that, so it was quick and easy. I went with a vest mounted holster for my G19 because in my experience when you have to put stuff on in a hurry you tend to forget "little things" like drop leg holsters and this way I've got everything on my vest so I can just grab my rifle and go. The only thing I see improving in my set-up is the IFAK, which isn't in the best spot for self-aid and is a little big as I wanted something large enough to hold a decent amount of medical supplies.

    I ran this vest this weekend for a M4C.com regional shoot (without SSAPI's) and found it to be extremely comfortable and significantly better than my previous issue IBA and IOTV. It seems very well made while offering quite a bit of protection. It offers a lot of flexibility as both large and medium SAPI's fit, so along it's built-in SSAPI carriers I can mix-and-match depending on the situation if I need more mobility or protection from rifle-caliber threats. I usually only keep 3 mags in my front M4 pouches but can carry 6 if need be, upping my rifle mags from 6 to 9 and can also add more pistol pouches as well.

    TAG - Spartan II Vest w/ Medium SAPI's, IBA soft inserts, and SSAPI's
    Eagle Industries - Double M4 mag pouch x1, Single M4 mag pouch, Single M9 mag pouch x2, Glock 19 Molle holster x1, Hydration Carrier (I got a good deal on this one in Ranger Green)
    S.O. Tech - IFAK
    Blue Force Gear - Ten Speed triple M4 mag pouch
    Maxpedition - Rolly poly MM dump pouch in ACU (I've had this on every set up I've ever had, great dump pouch and a bit of a good luck charm over the years so I kept it despite my hate for anything in ACU)

    I know someone out there makes a cummerbund that's designed to upgrade MOLLE plate carriers but if I were you I'd stay with your Spartan or sell it and get the improved model.

    This is a civilian load out with a S&W M&P15TS, M&P9 and USPalm Defender with soft body armor panels. The whole set up can be grabbed quickly and does not weight much. Sure, rifle plate would be nice, but they are expensive...

    Good looking set up. What have you done to attach the shackle for the front sling attachment.

    That is some advice from another M4Carbine.net user. I posted the link on my writeup about the new rifle. It works great, I just have to do a little plastic dip to get rid of the shine. MagPul should be out with the proper mount for the front of their sling later this year. It's too big for a Mash or HK hook mount so you have to do something custom... Luck for me, it's a cheap Home Depot/Lowes setup after you get an MI HK mount for the rail, you build off it. Check out my link on THIS page for more info....
