Have been looking for some good MOLLE based mag pouches for the Saiga-12 magazines. Went through a mountain of gear I used in the military, getting close but not quite right. Ended up grabbing some HSGI Tacos. I love Gene's gear, just not a fan of the Taco with these mags.

Hit a local surplus store yesterday, more of a military collectable shop, and found what I think's the best option out there. Fits like a glove. Did a Google search and found out it's made for the JTRS radio by either Sandpiper of California or Fireforce. They are available on Amazon in any color or camo you'd want.

Pretty sure this one is the Sandpiper made version as there's no tag on it. the one on the provided Amazon link is for Fireforce, has a tag and looks better made all around.

The MOLLE on mine isn't the best version out there. The ladders aren't stitched in the center, making the pouch a little loose when worn on a MOLLE belt. Would work fine on plate carrier or chest rig.

There was an elastic band across the front that was great for keep the mag secure but made it difficult to remove the mag with one hand while the pouch worn on a belt. Would have been fine on a plate carrier or chest rig. I cut the band off and it works fine now.

The retention cord was a bit too short for the 10 round mag. Easy to replace with some Type III nylon (parachute) cord. I plan to grab some elastic cord and use it instead. Also going to try my hand at dying it into a coyote-like color. Not bad for five bucks! They're all over the net!

Nice find and info.

Good to see they have a bunch of patterns other than what looks like AF cammo which does not work well in my location.

Air Force pattern doesn't work anywhere other than blending in at Goodwill

I think this is an earlier version by Fire Force as it's identical to one on their website. The version on Amazon is much improved.

Lol, no argument here Sir.

Maybe it works slightly in spring when things are green but in the high plains desert of Utah wearing AF and ACU is like wearing Target Indicator Black.

They tried to copy Viet Nam tiger stripe with that one with a digital swing and a miss.

I have some on a vest set mainly cuz it’s cheap but nicely constructed.

Back to Saiga mags, I bought up a bunch of the 5 rd factory ones when I saw they were going north in price. I have a few 10 rounders and a couple drum mags but they live in an over sized shoulder bag for obvious reasons.

I use a 4 cell RPK pouch For my 10 rounders. They fit perfectly and the pouch closes up just fine.
