Almost bought one because it seems better designed than the vertical SpecOps one, and I didn't like the Tactical Tailor one. Then as I was walking to the register, I saw that the store did have a Spector in stock. That is the one I bought instead. Very securely attached to the stock, holds the mag nicely, and seems very well built.

After looking around I opted for the Uncle Mike's "Blackwater Gear" version.

The name aside....It appears to be very well made and utilizes the MOLLE (?) system so I am not limited to mounting it on the stock.

OK, so it did seem like a good idea to me.

P.I.T.A., comes to mind now that I have tried it......

We had alot of trouble with them if they are mounted horizontally and you collapse the stock due to body armor. It gets in the way when you are trying to charge the weapon or clear a malfunction with a mag in it.

Here in theater almost everyone has one of these. Mainly because there are so many places on the friendly side of the wire that you can't have a mag in the weapon. It ensures a mag is always handy "just in case" even if you're in PT gear wiht nothing else. However if you were going somewhere where you thought you'd actually need it, its a cumbersome system, especially if your plan is to leave the mag in it all the time. Unnecessarily weighs down the rifle with something that should be on your person anyway. Other than going in and out of weapon green areas without all your rattle...I personally don't like them. But I'm not a spare bolt/batteries/kitchen sink on the gun- guy either.
