Chinese Type-56 Chest Bandolier

The Chinese Type-56 chest bandolier is an authentic piece of Chinese military surplus that is in excellent condition. With three main pouches, it is designed to carry three 30-round magazines for the Chinese Type-56, a Chinese copy of the AK-47. If you do not have a Type-56, throw in a couple of your AK-47 magazines – it provides a perfect fit. There are also four secondary pouches that are great for small accessories like an oil bottle.

Our Chinese Type-56 chest bandoliers are completely original Chinese military surplus items. Upon receiving the bandoliers, you will notice that they are, despite being used, in great cosmetic and working condition. Consider adding this wonderful piece to your collection today as a complement to your Type-56 or AK-47.

The Chinese Type-56 chest bandolier is constructed from a tough, olive drab canvas material that has held up extremely well throughout the years. The bandolier features a total of seven pouches. Three of those pouches are large and designed to carry 30-round magazines for the Type-56 or AK-47. That means you can carry up to 90 rounds of 7.62x39mm ammunition – all without the use of your hands! The remaining four pouches are much smaller and are perfect for carrying smaller accessories, such as oil bottles and cleaning supplies. Each pouch has a closure flap that serves to protect the contents of the pouch and is secured via small wooden toggles. The adjustable shoulder straps give this bandolier a "one size fits most" sizing.

The Chinese Type-56 chest bandolier is an excellent choice for:

- Collections

- Reenactments

- Range trips

- Costumes

- Much more…

Great but not for combat

Honestly I bought this as more of a novelty item don't think I'm ever going to really take it out but for the price its really quite nice. Mags fit perfectly and condition was great for surplus very minimal wear. Would've liked to have a little bit more adjustment in it but for the price and novelty factor its a good buy. As always KS shipped fast and well packaged. Review by Eric (Posted on 3/30/2014)

I've had my chest rig for a few months now and have used it quite a bit. I have had no problems with it and its my primary Akms chest rig. By far the best bang for your buck when it come to AK chest rigs. Review by Jonathan (Posted on 12/26/2013)

Stitching is what you would expect from a Chinese military item, but it is solid. Material is heavy canvas. My example looked to be new - no stains or tears.

Shoulder straps are attached to D rings via a simple hitch knot, and are made of heavy canvas. The waste strap is thinner material, and simply ties behind the back.

The mag pouches are properly sized for standard 30 round steel military magazines, and the utility pouches on the sides are perfectly sized for a number of small items - one of them has interior organizing loops to hold the oiler bottle and but stock cleaning kit (excellent for my under folder).

The wood toggles on all the pockets are strange at first, but they fold the flaps closed very securely - and with a few attempts, you can learn to use them quickly enough. After a few attempts, I was able to use them with shooting gloves on.

Value and durability are very high for this item. Utility is very good. I will likely buy a few more in the future.

Purchase it for my boy to play airsoft. Not as nice as a Blackhawk rig but for $15 bucks you cant beat it. This can be used to supplement your armor. Stick some loaded AK mags in it and you have a bit more protection. Very easy to adjust. Buy it. Review by Jose USMCR (Posted on 1/21/2013)

I use this to hold AK47 magazines and works fine. You will be hard pressed to find a better deal than this. Review by J. (Posted on 1/13/2013)

This works perfectly for 7.62x39 magazines and SKS clips. Not so well for 7.62x54r magazines, but Mosin Nagant clips can still fit nicely.

Great quality for the low price. I don't think this thing will break any time soon, so I'll be comfortable using it often.

For sixteen dollars, this is all you really need to hold your magazines and other must have range gear. I've spent ten times this on other "tactical" rigs, but they pretty much do the same as this one does. Mine was in excellent condition. If you don't want to spend a lot on a chest rig, consider this an option. Review by Brian (Posted on 12/8/2012)

This is a great product, I watched several reviews on this product on YouTube before I bought it. Trust me the Chinese don't play around when it comes to their military, this is good quality stuff. Review by Cody (Posted on 11/28/2012)

If you play paintball, don't buy a pod holder that cost $40, buy this chest bandolier. It is better made, more affordable, looks cooler, and holds pods perfectly. You won't get a better deal than that. Review by Jay (Posted on 10/21/2012)
