Airsoft Arms and Accessories: New Stuff From ITW

For those of you who don't know, ITW make a heap of very useful and lovely 'stuff' like Web Dominators, GrimLocs, Tac Links, Mag Boots and the fantabulous Fast Mag!

I bought a couple of Gen III Fast Mags at the last AAF and absolutely love them. Well, imagine my delight when I discovered that the company has just brought out two new Fast Mag products to add to their range

The first, the Fast Mag Heavy, has been designed to accommodate larger magazines and, just like its slightly smaller cousin, can be double stacked either with additional Fast Mags or with nylon pouches

The second product is the Fast Pistol Mag which, just like the others, can be worn separately on a molle platform or double stacked on top of an existing rifle mag holder, as illustrated in the picture below

As ITW say themselves:

The FastMag™ Pistol [FMP] is built from the same hi-strength, GhillieTEX™ IR reducing, anti-fragmentation polymer as the original FastMag™. Our new FMP reduces reloading time for the operator and can be mounted in the up or down position. This system eliminates the need for traditional top closures, while providing a secure point of access. The enhanced urethane tension strap is adjustable to meet the users preference for removal tension. The FMP is also designed to 'double-stack' on all FastMag™ Gen III & FastMag™ Heavy

Now, I don't currently have a need for any FM Heavy holders, but those FMPs are a different story. They look very cool indeed and if they're anywhere near as good as the rifle mag holders they will do a dandy job. The fact that they are designed to fit the standard Gen III holders is all the more reason why I've just got to have one, or two.....

All I need to do now is find a UK stockist. I'm off on the hunt!
