Mag. Dimensions

hey everyone,

If this counts as a spoonfed thread then i am sorry. i dont intend it to be.

With regards to the M14 mags, what are their dimensions. I am asking because the vest i am getting is technically for paintball and i want to know if the M14 mags will fit inside the 50rd pod holders, which have the dimensions of:

Height: 5 inches
Width: 9 inches
Depth: 2.5 inches

Thanks,

Donster 125

well lets see... the bullets they shoot (techinaclly) are 7.62... so they would be atleast 8 - 8 1/2 long...

i dont think your paintball vest is going to work very well, i tried this 3 - 4 years ago with m4 mags in a PB vest and it was horrible.
save money, buy better vest.
thats my advice.

Yeah your best bet would be to buy a vest meant for airsoft/real steel. Try a surplus store for cheap vests.

How do you figure that?

The dimensions of my AGM M14 mags are - 3inches wide, almost an inch thick, and almost 5 inches long, at the longest dimensions.

Heh, I think you got your measurements mixed up. That's 7.62 MILIMETERS, as in, the diameter of the round, not 7.62 inches long!

Well seeing how I picked up an airsoft M14 mag that you plan to put inside your vest, and measured it right before posting, I don't see why you'd have any doubts.

DC_ACU's numbers make no sense what so ever.

(All measurements made at widest points)

Thickness: 1"
Height: 5"
Width: 3"

Ancorp is correct

well its a molle vest, i just want the 50rd pods cause they match the camo pattern. i call it a paintball best cause its made by special ops paintball really for paintball but the fact that its molle means i can do anything really with it.
