I was hoping someone had advice for me on a good tactical rig for my AK47, or atleast advice on MOLLE/ALICE compatible magazine pouches. Thanks for your time.

the HSGI universal mag pouches work great for AK gear. those are the only ones i have experience with using AK mags in.

Perhaps someone has an opinion on this rig?

Yikes, NO!! Made in China Airsoft stuff

This'll probably outlive you, in all honesty. Eagle industries AK chest rig.

Personally, I have one of these

It's actually Russian, so it has an 'authentic' feel, if you're into that.

It isn't particularly well made, but I'm not really going to be running around Chechnya with one on, so I'm not worried about it falling apart. I'd say it's halfway between the Eagle rig, and the one you linked to.

Have you considered the Wasatch/Weesatch series by HSGI?



Bitchin' plate carrier/chest rig. Been getting rave reviews from what I've read. Handles AR and AK mags, which is great, though your capacity is cut in half with the larger AK magazines.

Never ordered from them, but I think they're in England, so you'll probably get raped for shipping.

I'm beggining to suspect it's airsoft crap & not the actual russian military stuff.. Le sigh..

That diamondback rig is $95 I think. I don't know if I would like the pouches, and I don't know if it carries 3 or 6 magazines, either. I wish these companies would quit changing names and confusing me, but the company that is now SPecter gear used to sell AK or AK/compatible chest rigs if I remember correctly, I don't know if they still do or not. I think they held 4 mags which is better, probably closer to a combat load. 7.62x39 is heavy ammo, so I'ld probably only carry 6 mags tops unless I was really worried.
