Magazine insert from Haley Strategic

Haley Strategic Partners, LLC has just released a magazine retention insert that can be inserted in a single 30 round magazine pouch, in addition to being able to be inserted in a .308 magazine pouch.The inserts are going for $12 a piece, while a pack of four go for $40, saving a customer $8 by buying a pack. It certainly is an interesting concept, allowing users to have open topped magazine pouches without the risk of the magazines falling out. No word yet on if these can work with AK magazines. From their website-

The MP2 was designed around life support equipment; equipment that we need to get to fast when time is life. The MP2 inserts allow 30 round 5.56, 5.45, 7.62 and.308 rifle magazines to be run in open top nylon pockets, without bungies and without sacrificing retention of the magazine.

The click-in design allows end users to insert magazines “bullets front” or “bullets back” and delivers a smooth draw of a fresh source without impacting the ability to quickly retain partial magazines in the case of a tac reload.

Built specifically for the D3CR and D3CR-H, the MP2 works with a variety of industry leading nylon magazine carriers including those made by Mayflower Research & Consulting, Velocity Systems, LBT, First Spear and more.

Designed and injection molded in the USA, MP2 inserts are available now, exclusively in Disruptive Grey.

With some jerry rigging, users could probably double inserts for double magazine pouches.

Bungees can get annoying during those speed reloads.

    No Condor compatibility?! I must report you to the guild of mall ninjas!

    Damn, that’s pretty cool. Like it …and really like HSP of course. Wonder how much they weigh? Couldn’t get any info on the site. I’ve become a weight snob lately and watch every OZ.

  • The CT Sentinel

    Looks like a copy of the ESSTAC KYWI. but since it has HSP stamped on the side everyone will forget that.

    • Geoff Peterson

      This is what I immediately thought myself. Having said that, I have 9 ESSTAC pouches and KYWIs, and they’re fantastic. Much better than the Eagle Industries Kydex pouches they replaced.

    I love the tactical phone holster

  • MP70

    Could these replace hsgi tacos?

  • Spencerhut

    Not sure they are any better than the HSGI TACO we run now. The TACO works pretty damn well. Have to get some to try.

  • BillyBones

    Somewhat expensive IMHO.
    I could easily make these of kydex.
