Center Mass, Inc. has an ingenious pouch for AR-15 magazines that attaches to your duty belt behind your pistol mag pouch. The Patrol Rifle Integrated Magazine Pouch ensures you always have an additional rifle mag with you, without the need for strapping anything else to your rifle.
Let’s face it, mag couplers can get heavy when holding a rifle on a subject for a long period of time. The pouches that strap to the rifle’s buttstock can come loose, and they can get in the way if you transition between shoulders to work around corners and cover.
The integrated mag pouch simply goes between your regular pistol magazine pouch and your belt, putting it where your hands have already trained to go for a reload.
Hopefully, we will be getting some of these pouches to test in the near future. I want to see if the system works as well as it looks like it should.
In case you have not heard it yet, check out my interview with Jeff Felts of Center Mass on episode #013 of the BlueSheepdog Podcast here. Jeff and I talk about his company’s products and the annual National Patrol Rifle Conference and Competition that he organizes. There is a two day training conference and vendor expo associated with the event, so it is something that you should consider getting involved in.
