The famous Chicom chest rig for submachine gun magazines that was taken into use in the 80s. Works nicely with many longer pistol mags, too. Unissued military surplus of the People’s Liberation Army of China, which really isn’t that commonly seen here. These will go quickly, so get yours while you still can.

We got a special shipment of Chinese army Chicom gear. The legend has it that these rare beauties came from a secret British SAS warehouse. Why did they have these in the first place, remains a mystery. The main thing is that we got them now, and soon you can have them if you act fast. This epic battle gear will disappear very quickly.

Features

The Chicom type 79 chest rig is more compact than the earlier Type 56. It looks super cute, like it shrunk in the wash. However, there is a reason for the smaller size. This was designed to carry the Chinese Type 79 submachine gun magazines that hold caliber 7.62×25 mm Tokarev cartridges. The inner measurements of the pouches are c. 12,5 x 4 x 3 cm / 5” x 1.6” x 1.2”, so the rig also works quite well with many longer pistol mags.

This chest rig has four submachine gun mag pouches side by side. It also has two wider but shorter pouches for a cleaning kit, grenades, etc. All the pouches are closed silently with wooden toggles. The adjustable shoulder straps cross each other at the back and the waist belt strings are tied together at the back. The distance from the tip of one of the belt strings to the tip of the other is c. 145 cm / 4' 9". If that ain’t enough, it is easy to add more string, and losing weight is also worth it for such a nice rig.

Condition

This is unissued Chinese military surplus forgotten in a dusty old warehouse. So, it is in as good a condition as decades old products can be. The colors can be a bit faded and there might be some warehouse dust on them, etc. If anything but mint condition gives you anxiety, buy a Chinese copy of the Chinese original. But that won’t be nearly as cool as this.

It's, uh, just a bit small on us tall skinny dudes BUT, my fuggheug five seven mags fit in the smg mag pouches, along with one box of ammo in each side pocket with a sock or whatever in them to take up the space. Light, compact, and bretty neat for pistols with larger mags.
