    Effective immediately,I will no longer be taking on any new orders. I will however, continue to fill the remaining orders for folks on this site and elsewhere.
    I hope to get back in the thick of things in the near future. Thanks again to all of those who have supported me in this endeavor. -Rory

    Well I finished up a gear project a couple days ago. It is a chest rig designed to hold(you guessed it!) AK mags,4 of them to be exact,any caliber. I used 2 layers of 1000D cordura with a sheet of 3mm closed-cell foam laminated between the two for the base and single layer cordura on the pouches with reinforcing on the lower mag pockets. A couple of cargo pouches flanking the lot and voila-a simple rig to hold the basics. I am happy with the finished product and as always learned a few things along the way. Thanks for looking.

    That looks really nice, always had a thing for chestrigs with the proven chicom layout (ext the cargo pouches oc). Did you have to buy a stronger sewing machine, or did an ordinary one cut it?

    Realy nice job. I don't think you can realy beat this kind of basic design.
    Keep the weight low and carrys just what you need.

    Looking for:
    Russian glossy plum pistol grips x 2
    1PN58 canvas scope case
    Pretty Serb or Croation girl with sense of humor and a body count

    Re: AK low pro chest rig

    Looks great! I did a similar project earlier this year, but yours is much higher quality. Hope you don't mind if I post a pic



    My objective here was to get a bra for as little money as possible. I just used fabric from a set of huge pillows that were going to be thrown away. The only thing I paid for was the webbing for the straps. I even made the buckles by hand. I don't have grommets in the bottom for drainage, I just have some openings in those bunched up areas in the corners. I also had some caps on the ends of the straps I made out of sheet metal, but they ended up being a pain and I recently removed them and went with the even simpler sewn line to hold it together.

    So, how much would one of those in a 58" chest run?

    Eight 30rd metal magazines in 7.62 would weigh 15lbs.

    Even eight 30rd plums in 5.45 would still weigh 9lbs.

    Something to keep in mind

    Re: AK low pro chest rig

    Thought I would just keep adding on to this thread instead of starting a new one every time.
    Here is my latest rig. Just a simple 3-mag design with pals for extra stuff. I kept the pouch dimensions close to the original chi-com rig for better coverage.

    Not sure if this is off topic or not, but I am looking for someone who can make me some suspenders for a "battle belt" from some tan automotive seat belt straps.
    Take heart.
