Note: With rounds down carry it is recommended to slightly smooth and round out of the corners of the protruding retention tang on the back of AK magazines, just enough to break the corners. This does not affect the function of the tang, except to make it less prone to snagging and abrading a pouch. You will still have full engagement with the magazine catch. This will help ease the insertion and extraction of magazines.

MOLLE/PALS compatible and can be mounted on webbing or belts up to 2.75” wide via two included short MALICE clips or two included long MALICE clips.
The AK IAP features a unique system of five rows of MOLLE/PALS composed of 0.875" webbing. When utilizing the included pair of short MALICE clips, the AK IAP can be mounted at three different levels on a MOLLE/PALS platform or four levels on a 2" wide belt. The mounting platform is stiffened with a sheet of HDPE plastic which provides the stability necessary for mounting the AK IAP at different heights.
Unique design features inherently result in a simple and low profile magazine pouch. The IAP features passive retention, thus eliminating the need for excess flaps, Velcro, or bungee. The only external material is the elastic retention band.
The AK IAP features three levels of passive retention. These three features working together allow immediate extraction of a magazine while providing secure retention of a fully loaded magazine under most conditions:
1. A thin layer of foam which is sandwiched between the HDPE stiffening sheet and the interior lining. When a magazine is inserted, the foam is compressed and pushes back on the magazine, thus creating tension.
2.1.5" wide elastic band wrapped around the exterior body of the AK IAP provides the main elastic retention.
3. Friction on the magazine is created by the interior of the back panel being lined with hypalon.
The height of the pouch body is 5" which exposes slightly less than half the length of a standard capacity 30 round AK magazine body yet still retains it securely. This height is necessary to provide proper retention of the curvature and length of AK magazines.
One handed insertion:
To prevent the pouch opening from collapsing when empty, the AK IAP features a HDPE plastic ring/insert sewn into the opening which keeps the top of the pouch open, allowing quick and easy one handed insertion of a magazine.
Rounds up or down:
The AK IAP will carry AK magazines 'bullets up' or 'bullets down'. With rounds down carry it is recommended to slightly smooth and round out of the corners of the protruding retention tang on the back of AK magazines, just enough to break the corners. This does not affect the function of the tang, except to make it less prone to snagging and abrading a pouch. It will still have full engagement with the magazine catch. This will help ease the insertion and extraction of magazines.
