I am looking for a simple chest rig to carry 5 or 6 FAL mags. Any reccomendations?

not aware of any currently made tactical vests for FAL mags, but maybe consider a molle type vest with added pouches...such as

good luck

"CLBV-M5 FOR M14
The CLBV-M5 made for the user specified M14 rifle, with a 20 round mag, also works for the HK91 and FAL rifles. Vest holds 8 mags and 2 frags with all the standard vest features."

Holds 8 in all, but you can download.

If you don't mind Brit stuff, Arktis is worth a look. I picked up a chest rig of theirs recently and it seems to be great quality. The mag pouches have a fastex buckles and a cinch strap to snug down over whatever load you have in a pouch. They will fit 7.62 and 5.56 mags.

I got mine from MilitaryGriffin on Ebay for significantly less than the prices at

YMMV

Custom Tactical Creations makes one that has cells you insert to change between 7.62 and 5.56 mags.
I did the create-your-own thing and mounted a HSGI Double Universal mag pouch along with an Esstac double .308 wedge onto a Blackhawk STIKE LBE harness. It carries 6 mags in that config.

Stay away form cheap crap like FMCO.

HSGI Wasatch is a plate carrier, chest rig roled into one. (http://www.skdtac.com/category.asp?CATEGORYID=162).

or I would look at the Bush Boar (http://www.esstac.com/308.htm)

I have that rig. It's a good rig, but probably not simple or a starter rig.

On the other hand, maybe it is...if you could buy one rig, it would be the Modular Multirole Harness by Custom Tactical Creations, and get the 2 each internal cells for AR and M14 magazines.

Go MOLLE.

Tac Tailor MAV w/x-harness with their .308 mag pouches.
