I know this might be in the wrong forum, but since the topic pertains to the LM4 mags, I thought I would give it a try.  If it needs to be moved, then please move it.

I have been fiddling around with a pantac molle dump pouch and the weight of the mags causes the pouch to sag and make it pretty easy for the mags to fall out.  For those that have fielded their LM4 can you please post what type of dump pouch you used and how secure your mags felt?

I run a Pantac belt mounted dump pouch secured to the second molle row on the side of my stripped down interceptor plate carrier. It seemed pretty secured to me, but I never had more than 3 mags in it. How many mags did you have in the pouch?

I had two in there, it was a foldable pouch so it's not secured at its edges which makes sense now.  Currently I have six mags and I'm hoping to hit the field soon, but I wanted something a little better.  

I'll take a look at the belt mounted pouches.

I do not have my LM4 yet (just ordered!) but I have been running gas rifles exclusively for a little over 10 months now and heavy gas mags in a dump pouch suck. What I usually do during combat reloads are drop the empty mag in the dump pouch, reload the rifle and continue to engage if needed. Once I find some down time or say I reloaded while not under fire I take the empty magazine(s) out of the dump pouch and put them back in the pouches on my rig.

I find doing this keeps my mags from slamming around into each other... I imagine with the polymer feed lips of the LM4 that might be an issue down the road.

Polymer is more forgiving than metal. KWA should have the polymer parts easily available for replacements in case it was dropped and broken.

On full metal mags, damaging the feed lips renders the entire magazine useless.

Consider Emdom USA's Dump Pouch.

The problem with LM4 mags is that they accurately represent the weight of a loaded AR magazine with 30 rounds of 5.56mm NATO - just about a pound. Even if you empty all the gas and BBs, the LM4 magazine's pretty heavy - and far heavier than an empty real-steel magazine.

I'd probably just shove two to three mags at most in the dumper, then make a point to stow the mags back in a rifle pouch.

Yeah, all gas and smg magazines are heavy and remain about the same weight. That posses a problem for anyone running gas guns.

I don't think I"ll be running more than 3-4 magazines on myself. 2-3 magazines at the most in the dump pouch sounds just about right... I'll probably have to cycle empty magazines into my rig to distribute the weight out better.

During the down time or while behind cover, I usually take my AEG mags that are empty while reloading and put them in the pouch upside down. For me, this helps me when under fire to quickly determine that mags empty by feeling the bottom and not the top. Thus being said, some people would say im doing this backwards and the proper way to hold mags in your pouchs is upside down so when reaching its fluid to pulling it out and putting it in the rifle. I find that troublesome, My question is, with the polymer feed tips, if/when i placed the mags in upside down. I dont want to break them, could that be a problem? I dont own a dump pouch, though I was thinking on purchasing one any recommendations while were on the topic of dump pouchs?

Devil, it seems that a dump pouch that clips in/attaches nearest the edges would resolve my problems that I have been having, so one of those would be better, but I can't say which brand.

Agreed, it's my next piece of kit.  See here: http://www.skdtac.co...h-p/e2m.106.htm

That pouch does look like exactly what I'm looking for.  It seems like it could hold the mags even with the extra weight.  Thanks for the suggestion!
