Blackhawk Quickmod Magazine Cases

Last year, Tom R posted about these mag pouches at SHOT Show 2015. I got to see them out in the wild.

At the 2016 FN 3Gun Championship match last week, I ran into Larry Houck. He was the match director for FNH USA 3Gun 2011-2015. He showed me his new Blackhawk quickmod magazine cases. They are a self contained user adjustable magazine pouch.

Most quick detach magazine pouches are limited to some sort of two piece docking mechanism like the Safariland ELS system or they are some sort of molle system.

The Blackhawk Quickmod system is an adjustable clamp for direct attachment to any belt. On top of that the magazine pouch can rotate 360 degrees for personal preference. This comes in handy for competition shooters. I see many pistol shooters orient their mags in different angles to facilitate faster magazine reloads.

The quickmod pouches can fit single or double stack mags. Larry was using them for his 2011 pistol magazines.

Here is a video briefly explaining these pouches.


The mag pouches retail for $40.95 for pistol pouches and $50.95 for their AR15 mag pouch.

  • That is the same attachment Ghost used for a while. It works well, for getting on and off, but it can be a pain to adjust for belt width. The pouch and spin on its own accord, and it is hard to get it velcroed in place on the belt.

    I find the Blackhawk magazine pouches to stick out from the body too far. They hang up on stuff. I’d take a traditional leather pouch without the plastic clips just so they are slim and compact.

    I like BH products for the most part, most are modular and very affordable. I use their Molle and QD adapters quite a bit and have never had any issues. I realize the “Serpa” catches flack with some people but Ive grown to like them. It’s like anything else, you have to practice with the holster you plan on using. For the price and options they offer I haven’t found anything better.
