Middle Eastern Chestrigs

Afghanistan: street bazaar made rig using leather. They come in many styles with decorations. I obtained this one from the Silah Report store.







This one looks like a bra that belongs to the "very large woman" the dread pirate Roberts(Westley) told Fezzik to dream of in Princess Bride. :o

That bazaar made rig has charm all it's own.
I'd be happy to have one.

Just got 4 Chicom chest rigs. 2 are 4 pocket with 2 small pockets, and 2 are 3 pocket with 4 small pockets.
All are near mint.

A couple of these could wind up on the block.

I've got a 7 pocket Chinese that 6 pockets are for 20 round AK mags and the 7th is for the cleaning supplies, etc. All are the same size and too short for 30rnd mags, but the 7th is lined to protect from oil/solvent. This is different than the other Chinese 7 pocket bandolier I've seen. The other one has 5 pouches for 20/30rnd mags and the outer 2 are smaller which may be for stripper clips or something???
Might try and find another one because I fit my daughter's 20rnd Tapco mags and they fit great.

Don't have mags yet but they are on the way.

Okay, finally got my 20rnd AK mags and was going to post up pics of them in the bandolier. Problem is, the flaps won't close, well, they will on some but not all. It's like they are not quite the right mag. Wondering if the bandolier is for AK-74 mags instead of AK-47 mags. Any thoughts?(see my previous post)

Hey GG! Late to your post but I saw you were inquiring about your mag pouch and thought I'd throw in my $.02. I think you've got a Chinese Type 63 chest pouch. The mags for the Type 63 are a bit shorter than the usual 20rd AK mags. (Say, as compared to the Hungarian 20rd "Tanker" mags)

Pic of the Chinese Type 63 rifle...




Three examples of the Type 63 20 rd mags...



Pictures of two Type 63 mags atop a Hungarian 20rd "Tanker" mag for length comparison...





I'm not sure how the Tapco 20rd. mags compare in length to the Hungarian 20rd "Tanker" mags but it'd probably be close.?  It'd be my best guess, anyhow... thumb1

Thanks FC, I figured it was something like that cause the KCI 20rnd mags I got for it barely fit.
