    Default FN FAL magazines and MOLLE pouches

    I have scoured the internet looking for new FN Fal magazines as well as MOLLE pouches to go along with them, so far I haven't turned up anything worthwhile and the local gun shops don't have much to offer either. I understand there's a lot of used mags available, however I'm the kinda guy that would rather purchase something like this new.

    I recently heard about Rock River Arms developing a new polymer Fal magazine for 5, 10, 20, and 30 round capacity, but haven't seen anything available for purchase; even on their website. The magazines I'm looking for are going to be used in conjunction with the Kel-tec RFB in case anyone is wondering.

    As far as MOLLE pouches go, I'm looking for a pouch that can carry two magazines stacked on top of each other, like this one:

    http://www.flecktarn.co.uk/ustmp7nx.html

    That's the only one I've been able to find. Why not just go with that one then? There has to be others available, I like to compare products and find the most suitable one for my tastes and likings. The pouch must also come in black. ( I got to keep my theme going for my set-up)

    Thanks in advance.

    There are tons of options available! Most guys make 7.62 mags these days...
    There is a couple of ones I found within a few minutes:

    http://www.optactical.com/atssi7sh.html
    http://www.optactical.com/blfogetenspd1.html
    http://www.optactical.com/matr7ma****t.html

    I think you know where I am headed... Ok, most of them aren't available in black, and some of them are singles, but if you do a little searching around webshops then you should be able to find some great alternatives... Things to search for could be: FAL, SR 25, 7.62, SCAR-H, 308, M14 etc. Anything for 7.62x51 should fit FAL mags..

    You almost always find FAL magazines, often unused and/or in excellent condition, in the "marketplace" section of this forum. You'll probably have to register, unless the seller provides an e-mail address for contact:

    Brad at Gunthings usually has FAL mags and other parts. I've done a lot of business with him:

    Canadian FAL mag pouches will probably work well with MOLLE. You could probably also use old M14 mag pouches, modified with MALICE clips.

    Also, DSA has been trying to come out with brand-new magazines for the FAL, and are expected to have them available soon. They had some last year, but they had issues, and DSA has been working out the bugs. Check out their site from time to time.

    The FAL, though an excellent rifle, is pretty much "obsolete" in most of the world's armies who fielded the rifle. As a result, magazines and other parts in unused condition are getting harder and harder to find.

    Not without modifying them. And they suck. You'd probably be better off buying once, crying once.

    I thought the Canadian mag pouches were pretty good, until I actually used them. They're okay, but I prefer the old M14 pouches, if you can find ones in good condition.

    For anyone interested in the new poly fn mags I was talking about earlier, I had sent RRA an email in regards to them and they're availability.

    Here is the E-mail as follows:

    Our poly FAL mags should be available in the next few months. If that rifle
    you are asking about uses FN FAL mags then our poly ones should work with it
    but im not sure.

    Buy yourself some old Canadian olive drab combats. They had fancy inner pockets to hold FN mags inside the pockets themselves.

    If you check FALFILES.COM, you will see that the new FAL mags (20, 25 and 30 round) have been "available soon" for several years now. When I was at SHOT show this year (January), the DSA folks said, again, that they would be hitting the market "in two or three weeks" - which is DSA-speak for sometime between today, and the Sun burning out and collapsing into a black hole.

    That said, I own a DSA FAL. It is a great weapon, and recommend one if you are so inclined. They do make quality stuff - it's their customer service and marketing folks that leave something to be desired.

    As for pouches, a MOLLE 100-round pouch will loosely hold 4 FAL magazines. The MOLLE canteen/utility pouch will hold five.

    Agreed, cliffg. I've done enough business with DSA (upper receivers and parts) to know first-hand how "great" (not) their customer service is. They did have the FAL magazines out and sold quite a few, last year. Unfortunately, someone in the QC Dept. at DSA was on vacation or sick when the orders were fulfilled, and DSA had to give refunds to a lot of customers. Too bad, because I'd love to have some US-made FAL mags, just to have three of the damn compliance parts.

    I bought the Eagle pouches for my G3 20 rd mags and they worked great.
