OK, run-and-gunners. Limitless Gear has a new approach to MOLLE attachment and are intro’ing their new MC-R mag carriers (MSRP $34.95). From Limitless Gear’s email blast:
We’ve got a product that is a completely new take on a couple of old ideas. It’s a 5.56 magazine carrier called the OPFOR that works like nothing you’ve seen before. We have a fast attachment systems for MOLLE that doesn’t require any docks, accessories, or tools. It lets you mount the OPFOR quickly and easily to any 2×2 MOLLE/Pals surface in seconds with just your hands . . .
This means that you can move your entire magazine loadout from a plate carrier to a battle belt to a drop leg in less time than it would take to reload all your mags.
The second unique feature is lidless positive retention, where we use a simple mechanical interlock to retain the magazine in the carrier without relying on a friction system. Magazines lock into place just like in a weapons mag well and can be removed with a simple twist and pull.
With this system we eliminated the need for flaps or bungee cords for retention and, all your magazines are both secure and immediately accessible. Magazines can be indexed in either direction and even carried inverted providing a wider range of carry options than almost any other mag pouch you can think of.
