    20rd mag pouch source

    Iím setting up a low profile chest rig and want to use 20 round Pmags for the loadout but having trouble finding a pouch. I donít want open top and I donít want to use a 30rd pouch.

    Specter discontinued their 20 round flapped pouch and the only other Iíve seen are SOE at $45 for a single mag pouch.

    Am I missing any others out there?

    20rd M4 mags themselves are pretty much a dead item; I've not seen anyone legit using one of things in years (outside of bench shooting or ban states), and as you've noticed, the market reflects that. 20rd mag pouches were always a niche item, they are pretty much discontinued everywhere now.
    Still a couple companies that make open-top pouches (bungee, elastic, kydex) that are either 20rd specific, or short enough to fit 20s (like "quick draw" type), but flappers? Yeah, nah. Deader than Kennedy...
    There are probably still some pouches you could press into service - I used to have several of the TT fitelite smoke pouches, and when adjusted full out, they could just fit a 30rd, so I'm pretty sure they'd fit a 20 nicely. YMMV
    TT also used to make some 20rd bungee shingles, but they don't retail them anymore - you can special order them in quantity of 20+.

    You could try to search for old-gen milsurp. IIRC there used to be some decent British 20rd flapped pouches floating around. Unless I'm getting them confused with something else....

    You should be able to modify some standard mag pouches to work with the 20 rounders. I imagine screwing a hole about an inch and a half up and sticking a 1/8" bolt with a lock nut would be one way of doing it.

    I am a big fan of 2, 20 round mags in the gun, backed up by 30 round mags on the carrier. This was operating in and out of vehicles, they are easier to get in and out of the vehicle.

    How would you mount the 2nd 20 rounder? Mag coupler?

    Good ole' Beez, they seem to have a lesser presence then others with Social Media but tend to do an excellent job of things

    We shoot mostly 20 round mags because we do a lot of precision. But my chest rigs wear 30 round bangers.
    Glad you found a solution and thanks to Yoni for the hot tip working in/out vehicles.
