Firearm Magazine Pez Dispenser

AR pez dispenser

Shielltec Inc. makes an interesting product. It is like a giant pez dispenser for gun magazines. You could call it a magazine feeding device or a Magazine of Magazines.

Here is their loadmaster. It holds five pistol magazines. As you retrieve one magazine from the dispenser, a new one is advanced and ready to be retrieved for your next reload.

 

 

The concept reminds me of the Moonclip Server that I often see at USPSA matches.The moonclip server does the same thing. You have a series of moonclips. As you take one to load your revolver, the server advances the follower to push the next moonclip.

 

Shielltec also make a larger backpack version that dispenses AR magazines.

And then there is the Cress. A backpack system that allows semi-rapid deployment of an AR with an integrated magazine dispenser. The AR looks to be using a Law Tactical folding adapter to fit it in the back pack. It looks somewhat clumsy to deploy. And the backpack does not look very discrete.

    I liked the pistol magazine dispenser.

    The rifle backpack dispenser …. for 7 magazines? YGTBSM.

    A magazine magazine…. magception!

    Yo dawg, I hear yuo liek magazines…

  • Ευστάθιος Παλαιολόγος

    I fail to see where this has a field of employment.
    I fail to see a real use other than show-off
    Please someone point it to me if there is such a use

      Competition. Those guys are always looking to carry more ammo.

      • Ευστάθιος Παλαιολόγος

        Thank you. So no apparent tactical application?

        • Jwedel1231

          Probably not, though what I would take in a “tactical” situation and what someone else would take will vary between individuals.

          • brett

            Maybe a LEO could have one or two of the pistol in the back of their cruiser or maybe a civy has one in the go bag.

  • Rusty S.

    I’d love to see certain people stumble over the terminology…”we need to something about high capacity magazine…magazines?”

    • jamezb

      …you mean “clip-clips” ?

  • john huscio

    The “music” ruined the last video for me……..that said, I like the concept…..like the idea of a pistol mag dispenser pouch at the range or, don’t laugh, SHTF…..AR mag dispenser? Probably In the same settings as the pistol one.

  • Edeco

    mag^2

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Yeah and hows that thing supposed to fit over or under everything else your humping like a camelback, body armor, etc?

  • OJS

    Do they have one for clips?

    • Jwedel1231

      Yeah. The second video is about a clip dispenser.

  • OJS

    At this moment, California state senator heads are exploding with thoughts on how fast they can regulate high capacity magazine magazines

    • Of course… Since once you use up the 7 magazines you’ll have to get rid of the magazine magazine so they’ll be less of them out there… right?

  • iksnilol

    If they made sometihng as slim as the moon clip server for pistol mags I’d be totally in.

  • PigSmoker

    Didn’t Garrett make a Spring Loaded Magazine Carrier in the past? If I remember correctly, the SLMC was more competition oriented, but so is this, probably.

  • TheNotoriousIUD

    Do her pants fall off at any point?

    • AlbertEinstein

      Did she ever wear pants in the film?!! 😉

    • Tassiebush

      No I just checked it and they do not

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        Screw it then.

  • Correct me if I’m wrong, but hasn’t this been around for several years?

    The big problem with it that I see is it looks tricky to carry anything else while you’re wearing it. Nice thing about mag pouches is they’re pretty out of the way.

    Oh, and since I’m Nathaniel F, also it looks like it adds weight.

    • CS

      You only have so much room on your belt. If you use a mag pez dispenser in conjunction with mag pouches…. just think of all the havoc you could lay down on those pesky watermelons.

    • Here is an alternative design from a few years ago.

      https://www.google.com/patents/US7364057

    • It looks awkward from a combat standpoint, but something like this would make carbine competitions in an oppressive state feasible. Watching a match in NY with 10 round magazines will make you quite depressed.

  • Al Wise

    Further proof you can sell anything to the mall ninja crowd. Geez.

  • ShootCommEverywhere

    I’m actually pretty sold on the pistol mag version if it were belt mounted. Grab magazines from the same position on the belt each time, no risk of going for the wrong pouch, indexes well… If they could make it lower profile than the full SAW pouch size it appears to be, perhaps by making it longer, having the magazines with the rounds facing downrange, and eliminating a magazine, I might buy one to play with. Seems like money for competitions.

  • Kelly Jackson

    Remember in the Tomb Raider film Lara’s backpack dispensed USP magazines?

    • iksnilol

      I’m just thinking USP mags are way too expensive to throw away like that.

    • Bob

      Beat me to it…

  • Patrick M.

    I feel like we’ve been down this road before. I believe it was called the STRAC F.A.S.T. System. Never really went anywhere

  • Nocternus

    Seems like a really bulky way to carry 5 AR mags.

  • Evan

    It seems to me that having to reach around your back for a mag negates any conceivable advantage that this would have. And as the only conceivable advantage this thing would have is that you never have to change up where your hand goes when reaching for a new mag, which isn’t that much of an advantage at all really, that makes this thing really not worth it. I’ll stick with the tried and true system of mag pouches.

    • Cory C

      I personally find it way easier to grab magazines from the small of my back than from my chest or stomach area.

      • Evan

        Really? I like them along my stomach and to an extent my side. Small of my back just seems incredibly awkward to me.

  • Someone needs to do a timed demonstration video with these things loaded up with ten round Cali-pliant pistol magazines vs someone with an equivalent round count of standard capacity magazines, just to show exactly how few seconds would be shaved off the timeframe of a massacre by magazine capacity limit laws.

    …Y’know, if the terrorist/angry ex/former coworker/etc. actually bothered to follow the law while committing the, uh, massacre.

  • plumber576

    Last video music, “I kill ’cause I’m hungy?”
    Bro, have a Snickers. You get all Jeffrey Dahmer when you’re hungry.

    • Tassiebush

      haha! I was just thinking I don’t think any type of killing would require the level of angst as exhibited by that singer! Seriously imagine how embarrassing it’d be to go fishing or hunting with that guy!

      • Joshua

        that would be Rob Bailey and the Hustle Standard, he does workout music, which I quiet like.

        • Tassiebush

          Ah workout music makes sense. My tastes lean more towards comedy songs whether witty, crass or both. I just find angst a bit much these days but I can’t judge. I certainly used to listen to plenty of Metallica and Rammstein.

  • Vindice

    Except the stuff on my back can probably stay there. A back pack with a camelbak, radio, ration, and dry pair of socks has no place on anyone’s chest, where as on the back it is out of the way. Let alone if you have additional medical kit or ammo you are carrying around. And a lot more than seven mags can go on my front if mass amounts are required.

    • ostiariusalpha

      LOL! Rations & water? That’s a WORL/SHTF fantasy, and while it’s not entirely impossible, you really shouldn’t build a tactical kit around that alone.

      • Vindice

        Or it’s called the army. Other than professionals and a SHTF scenario, what are the odds of actually needing a tactical kit? From the pistol mag video this was clearly designed at least in part with the plan to equip the pros. And carrying stuff other than bullets it definetly a huge part of what your tactical load out should be based on. Even guys who may only be in the fight briefly, such as SWAT teams, have more than just ammo to carry. Like water, and maybe even food depending on the situation.

        • ostiariusalpha

          The Army?! Dude, that is almost entirely irrelevant to this product, seeing as they provide the equipment in the first place and wouldn’t let you carry this even if it was useful to a mission; they aren’t going to let you carry you’re privately purchased, pet AR-15 or Beretta 92FS either, you get what they give you. This is a civilian product, for civilian purposes. And just no, SWAT are usually not carrying water or food on their persons during an operation, much less a backpack’s worth. That is a ridiculous thing to even suggest.

    • Tassiebush

      I carry my spare socks where Axl Rose carries his. That way I can impress the ladies before I disappoint them.

  • AD

    For some reason I really like this!

  • Tassiebush

    This seems to need to be done with the 60 or 100 round quad mags

  • politicsbyothermeans

    Even though you can load 10 magazines, in NY you’ll only be allowed to load 7.

  • MrDakka

    Thank you, I would have been disappointed if Xzibit didn’t show up for this
