Welp here it is:

View attachment 468480

Initial thoughts: built quality looks absolutely top notch. The only thing I don't like is a M14 mag is TIGHT. Like have to struggle & use two hands to get one in tight...

It stretches the elastic real bad at the corners: View attachment 468485

As you can see it fits a 5.56 GI mag or a beer bottle fine.

I was debating between this & a repo Rhodie style rig when I ordered this. Wish I would have gone for the Rhodie rig now.
True story, Vietnam 1969: I was on Reaction Force detail at a large combat base one night and as usual when assigned these additional duties was just sitting around on standby, playing cards and drinking beer. Would only have to do anything if attacked. Well, we got rocketed so RF got activated. Grabbed my rifle, steel pot, flak jacket, and claymore bag of magazines, met at the rally point, loaded on a truck and hit the perimeter. Remember that part about "drinking beer"? Got to a bunker and went to load when I found I had grabbed the wrong claymore bag, the one with coke cans and snacks/c-rats. Quite embarrassed and some pretty high anxiety as I had to crawl around looking for ammo.

What a quandary - which one do I empty first? Did you run out of San Magoo, or do you just want to keep your kidneys in operation?
