    Moving on into the late 80s/early 90s this time im using my Special Air Sea Services (SASS) Coverts Operations (COP) Vest... A cracking bit of kit for gaming in & a welcome change from using 58 Pattern, PLCE & Chest Rigs when using my G&G L85A1.

    Custom Gear

    Theres no School like the Old School. So, with that in mind... Now, some of you might be scratching your head at these magazine pouches thinking they look different to the norm... Thats because Ive had these two completely custom made exclusively for my airsoft 20 round Armalite mags, based on the ones seen in the reference material & more importantly an original one I'd actually seen for sale on SASS's ebay store way back in 2009. These existed just before the more common 'drop loop' ones that we've all seen which became available slightly later in 60s & prevalent throughout the 70s & 80s… In fact, the earliest drop loop Armalite pouches I've seen so far are dated 1967, as seen on Karkee Web & going through all the available reference pictures I've collated over the years I've actually yet to see them make an appearance in Borneo with the SAS. So for something a bit different & to raise some awareness of them I had these run up for my impression & to be used with other things in mind too. The benefits about having my own pouches made means I can ‘use & abuse’ them for gaming without fear of damaging them, which Id be Very hesitant about doing with an original (should I ever source one) given how extremely rare they've proven to be. Evolution of a pouch... As I wasn't just modifying an existing pouch or screwing about with my original drop loop AR-15 pouches (heaven forbid) I had to have these made completely from scratch. But with no template to work from the pattern had to come from somewhere. So that's when I got to work 'Art Attack' style & constructed my own ones from card based on just the pictures & the measurements of my Airsoft mags. Here's one I made earlier... The originals being used... To date, in all the years since, I haven't seen another one listed on ebay or anywhere else & rarely (which is to say never!) does anyone ever bring them up when mentioning Borneo/ Old School SAS belt kits. They don't feature on Karkee Web nor in Simon Howletts book..or anywhere else for that matter. Like some of the early L1A1 pouches, these seem to have been completely overlooked/forgotten about until now. & with my 60s SAS Borneo Kit set-up...
