IPSC Glock 17/19/26 Magazine pouch based on the CR Speed pouch. Designed for 1.5 inch (38mm) competition belt with adjustable tilt/height and variable retention, suited for both OEM magazines and aftermarket (like Magpul)
This is designed for simple and fast printing at 6 hours using about 20 meter filament,
Design consists of 3 parts and require 6 M4X20 bolts to assemble.
Can be equipped with magnets for extra functionality as seen on photos.
This is my first iteration of the magpouch, any suggestions/comments on improvements or in general is appreciated. I have used this in IPSC matches with great success
MagPouch.stl is printed standing with no support. Brim could be a good idea to reduce warping of the bottom surface, but this has not been an issue for my print.and wont affect the usablilty
BeltAdapter.stl is printed laying flat on the bed with support from the print bed only, this ensures that the hole keeps its intended shape.
AdapterBackPlate.stl is printed laying flat. Orient so that the outer layers are not printed diagonal or horisontal, but at an angle to increase its tensile strength when fastening the assembly to the belt
I have just used the regular print settings in Prusa Control. 20 % infill seems to be enough, and gives the part the necessary flex
Besides the printed parts. 6 M4X20 Hex Bolts/screws and compatible nuts are used. While different lengths can be used, this is done to simplify the components required.
The print will result in slightly tight holes, and to ensure a good fit, a 4mm drillbit is used to achive the correct hole diameter and a snug fit.
After this you are ready for assembly.
Insert 1 screw into the magpouch choosing one of the three positions for different height.
Insert 1 screw into the magpouch retension hole and screw a nut on the other side. Tighten this to ensure a good friction fit with your choice of glock OEM or afternarket magazine.
Take the magpouch and belt adapter and mount these together using the screw inserted in step 1. using a nut on the other side to tighten. here you can adjust the angle of the pouch in relation to the belt. It can be difficult to achive the required friction to keep the magpouch in the correct position during use, and it is recomended to epoxy or use some other method of enhancing the friction when you have tested and found the angle that you want.
Now you can take the magpouch/beltadapter and secure it to the belt with the adapterbackplate. This is done with the remaining 4 M4 hex screws.
- for extra functionality a magnet can be connected to the end of the retention screw to hold extra magazines.I used a 11LB 22mm Diameter rubber coated magnet with M4 Female Thread found on ebay for $9. Some Locktight will ensure it does not come of during use
