Best way to carry lumpy magazines?

Lets say you have a Sig550 (or a G36?) and the mags have those cute things that let you clip them together to carry a bunch at once. How do you put them in mag pouches. They certainly take up more than one space in a .223 mag pouch for say, M4s. I can get them into .308 pouches, but they still sorta tend to snag.

Is there a specific carrier people or armies use, do they tape over or file off the clips in frustration or what?

I know that there are mag pouches that are designed to hold 2 AR-15 magazines clamped or cinched together. Check on www.cheaperthandirt.com .

If they clamp together, why not just put them all on the gun!? :D

O didn't really want two together, but that's a thought.

I have actually seen a sig rep showing off like 6 clamped togther in the gun! It was...bulky.

I remember seeing a guy fighting in Africa/Haiti/whereever using a G3, with about 8 magazines taped together, alternating up-down-up-down for the feedlips for the whole block.

Talk about ackward. :rolleyes:

Heck, at that point just use a belt-fed. :rolleyes:

Why, in a lumpy magazine pouch of course! Blackhawk makes a G-36 double mag pouch, others undoubtedly do too. Visit www.lightfighter.com and look around.

Blade-Tech makes these for ARs, AUGs, MP5s, and AKs. I sometimes wear two under a coat for an AR. I bet a little Dremel modification would fix you right up.
