The X39 Shingle is a simple and efficient way to carry AK pattern magazines on your plate carrier. Like most shingle type designs, this simply sticks to the loop velcro field on the front of your plate carrier and is then secured with tension from the cumberbund. What seperates the X39 shingle is it is spacifically designed to accommodate AK magazines. Each cell is appropriately sized for the added width of the mags locking lugs. We also chose to use elastic that is taller than most standard AR sized shingles to help stabilize a greater portion of the long magazines. Lastly, we built in a larger than normal loop face to get a more solid connection when you attach your cumberbund. All of these small features come together to make for a very smooth draw with zero snag and a easy re-index.
- Works with any 7.62x39, 5.45x39 or 5.56x45 AK magazine.
- Works with any plate carrier that has a front loop field to secure the cumberbund.
