The ORIGINAL gathering place for a merry band of Three Percenters. (As denounced by Bill Clinton on CNN!)
This looks useful: "Magpul’s New Enhanced Magazine Release."
For lightening the load overall: "Emdom USA’s New Lighter, Stronger MALICE Clips."
And, pricey but overdue -- a stock pouch for the classic Garand: "Modern Ammo Pouches for the M1 Garand."
On the Magpul AR mag release.... http://weaponsman.com/?p=23294Worth considering before buying one and finding out the hard way.
Perhaps I'd use the ammo pouch if it were incorporated into the band of a cheek pad. The men at Lexington made do with iron sights because they had no choice. I'm not giving up my optics because I don't have to. ;-)
There is nothing wrong with the old "M 56" canvas pouches for Garand ammo. Contrary to internet BS the "small" (M1956) pouch will take 7 to 8 Garand clips and the "large" "M 14" M 1961 pouch will hold 9 or 10, depending on who made them. I modified mine by sewing a 12 inch piece of webbing to the left inside of the pouch to use as a "pull up" and then tied the pouches top and bottom (ALL of them) to my web belt using the M1910 holes. Nylon is OK in the field if that's the way y'all want to go but Velcro SUCKS, SUCKS, Sucks, as the moment it fills up with "whatever" including grass and mud (and the infantry are called "mud roller" for a reason) Velcro stops working. The stock pouch is another worthless idea as the moment you start "running and gunning" that worthless ass Velcro will let go(cause its full of mud and crap) and dump both clips on the ground (in the dark-FUCK!) and they are ONLY offered with Velcro.---Ray
