I agree, that's why I told him to do it . I don't trust the magnetic mag pouches and have seen mags come out on the range. Definitely don't trust it to hold my shotgun to my kit. Not to mention, if it's strong enough to hold the gun to you while moving, wouldn't it be a huge pain in the ass to get free when you need it?

You could try the Remington SRD and see if it works with your kit setup, and no magnets or over-engineered devices to deal with.

Since there are metal particles in most dirt and sand. Seems like a lot of dirt/dust would get stuck to it. Someone at work wanted the students to use these, thats why I asked.

You would be correct Keith.

Think about how easy they are to slide apart rather than pull apart.

IMHO, if you perform any IMT with these attaching your kit, you are going to be leaving weapons and gear all over the battlefield.

I recall there was an issued magnet pouch with molle attachments on the reverse. it held two zippo sized earth magnets on the inside. never seen it used for its inteded pourpose but can't forget the day I was playing with it in the team room and the things snapped together and gave me a blood blister I won't forget

can't seem to locate a photo of it, we used it to hold notes to the outside of the bravo locker

They were banned from my SFAUC class after the first live fire CQB day. Guys would go in the room and start deminishing their sector and the shotgun would come loose and swing around. We had 6 on my team that were give to us by S8, but I use them to hold screws when I'm gunsmithing in the cage, not doing CQB.

You can also use them to find dropped screws, if you didn't use them to retain the screws earlier.

Maybe that was the intended purpose... Last Man in a Stick has the magnets to police up all the gear.

SEALs could have used magnets on thier last madia blitz.

I have seen these in use. They seem to work pretty well with a flat Remington 870 steel receiver.

I have an R2S that was made by a 19th group guy from Texas

It works with a dovetail that fits into a receiver plate.

It works well and I like it.

the website is not good but it can be found under R2S from bad company tactical
