    I was given one on my last tour, held the mag solidly yet released whenever needed.
    No complaints whatsoever.

    Another experienced lad had four of them and was well chuffed.

    At twenty notes I think they're a bit dear, but as mine was a freebie I'm not going to bitch.

    Are we moving away from enclosed ammo pouches part of which the job was to keep ammo clean?
    I know what happened in the late 80's with ammo carriage, experience in NI and the introduction of the A1 meant chest rigs etc were accepted and even provided at some units, are we now making that leap into another soon to be accepted means of carriage?
     
  6. Whats a bank mag?

    Probably the yellow jobby on the front that gets pushed down, and so allows rounds to feed, when you load the magazine.

    Piccie (apparently it's called the live round inhibiter...):

    Seems odd, I havent used the A2 or even blanks in an A1, all live ammo when we got it and left before the A2 came in.
    Cant ncos be trusted to issue the right ammo for an exercise any more?
     
  12. Do they work upside down with blanks?

    I never worried about dirt or losing the top round on slr mags top down in 58 webbing puches, the only time I was worried was when we had some L4 mags nose down in sets of 3 individual pouches with drain holes each side. I put them the other way up then!
