One Heck Of A Mag Pouch

Actually, it isn't a mag pouch. It is a backpack that integrates with a machine gun so that the machine gunner can carry up to 925 rounds of 5.56x45 or 575 rounds of 7.62x51 ammunition.

I seem to remember reading a story somewhere that some soldiers in either Afghanistan or Iraq made a prototype using scavenged parts and an old Alice pack frame.


  1. Who has to police up all that brass????

  2. The machine I'm using right now can't view video, but isn't this a pretty old or at least obvious idea? I can remember seeing it in a Japanese animation OAV from 1987....

  3. Reminds me of jessie ventura in Predator who had a similar backpack ammo thingy.
