That's a perfect exemple of a useless post right there, don't post next time.

As for a good post just make sure you get the more recent versions of them since the older one are really picky on the mag brand you can use in them.

g36 mags are quite hard to get because of the fake bullets in them making them toutchy to import... also if you already have 3 m4 like me, an adaptor would save you the cost of a whole new set of mags

i guess purpose built pouches would probably be easier to find for AR mags so maybe thats a plus?

the only g36 mag pouches that come to mind are made by TT but theirs probably more that i missed

So do g36 mags not fit well in regular tac vest pouches? And I found some without the bullets on ehobbyasia. I believe they are king arms

Most vests and pouches are gears around armalite (M16, M4, M733, etc.) mags. G36 mags are a fair bit thicker than aramlite mags and also have the connectors on the sides which hang up on a lot of pouches that they do fit in. Tactical Tailor make G36 specific pouches as do Dropzone Tactical. These are designed to take two mags clipped together. Most armalite pouches that fit three AR mags are just a bit too small to take two G36 mags. I also run with TACGEAR and ARKTIS rigs ant they take double G36 mags no problem.

Now, I also use both the older Private Parts and the current SOCOM AR magwell conversions. While I agree using AR mags destroys the look of the gun (visible rounds are just way tacticool, though 20 round AR VN mags do look kind of neat), it does make a lot more gear compatible to the mags and chances are, you will be able to swap mags with teammates easier should the need arise. The only issue I've had using the magwell conversion is you'll loose about 6 bb's every time you pull the mag out. With G36 mags, you loose 2.

Former G36 with AR magwell conversion user here. Agree with Darklen on all account.

I personally find the loss of 6 BBs acceptable (provided not using realcaps) given the lower profile and greater commonality of the AR mags.

I'll google those. And there is no chance of them fitting in regular vests?

Chances are, you'll only be able to fit one G36 mag into a pouch designed for two AR mags. If the pouch is made for three AR mags, it's really hit & miss if two G36 mags will fit.
