The AK-47 is a selective-fire assault rifle that was developed in the 1940s by Mikhail Kalashnikov for a round of military trials designed to field a weapon chambered for the 7.62x39mm cartridge. I know, you know it, your mother knows it and your little sister probably even knows it. It has seen time on the official flags of nations the world over. It finds itself plastered on coats of arms all over. It has been associated with terrorists, revolutionaries and a multitude of other political groups. It is a cultural icon and it has probably found a nice home with a bunch of friends inside your safe.
Yes, chances are you own an AK-47. If you do, you probably like to log a lot of range time with it. But if you are doing so with a magazines pouch other than the North Star Tactical AK-47 MOLLE magazine pouch, then you are doing it all wrong.
The North Star Tactical AK-47 MOLLE magazine pouch is a newly-made pouch that offers tactical shooters the ability to carry four 30-round AK-47 magazines in one compact pouch for a total of 120 easily-accessible rounds.
The North Star Tactical AK-47 MOLLE magazine pouch is a new-production item from North Star Tactical, an American-owned and operated company that specializes in tactical products for the military, law enforcement, EMTs and the civilian market. This magazine pouch is the perfect accessory for anyone that owns an AK-47 and routinely engages in target shooting or tactical drills at firing ranges.
The North Star Tactical AK-47 MOLLE magazine pouch, constructed from durable, high-strength nylon with military-grade stitching, measures approximately 7 inches by 8 inches by 2 inches. As noted, the pouch is available in either an olive drab color or the Universal Camouflage Pattern (UCP). Each pouch is a dual-chambered pouch that features two separate oversized closure flaps that are secured via hook and loop fasteners. Two 30-round AK-47 magazines will fit into each chamber, bringing the total capacity to four magazines and 120 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammunition. Surprisingly, you may also carry up to six M16/AR-15 or other STANAG-compatible box magazines in place of four AK-47 magazines. The real draw of the North Star Tactical AK-47 MOLLE magazine pouch, however, is the inclusion of the Universal Attachment System.
The Universal Attachment System is a series of one-inch wide straps located on the reverse of the magazine pouch. These straps, which are secured via snap fasteners, make the pouch compatible with the Pouch Attachment Ladder System, also known as PALS. PALS is a system of nylon webbing that forms a grid, usually found on MOLLE rucksacks, packs and vests, that provides for the attachment of pouches and other tactical accessories.
