    I wasn't aware we (Brits) had kit for M16 mags......FNs / SLR ????
    Also used extensively in Belize and by some units in Northern Ireland for rural COP (Covert OP) patrols in places like South Armagh.

    But could also fall out easier.
    I can see that it looks that way but they don't. The mags sit quite snugly but maybe it is also something to do with the way that kit discipline ie returning empties to the pouch as part of the reloading drill and keeping pouches fastened is so deeply ingrained in British training. I know it is simply good practice but the British training regime makes it a genuine "muscle memory" and almost paranoic at times. In basic training an insecure pouch resulted sometimes in a very unpleasant learning experience usually for the whole platoon!

    It is one of those things that just never leaves you and I am still affected by it but now it's my pockets and work bag / rucksack etc it's the old "riding a bike" syndrome and I am sure some people who notice think I am a bit mad
