New to the site, have been lurking around for a while and am newly back into the 'Nerf scene' you could say.
I was in search of a 35 round magazine holder and never found much content on the net, so I set to making my own custom holder.
I made two versions of the same design. The first version was made entirely of cardboard, hot glue and black duct tape so as to get an idea if the design would actually work and if it was practical in the field.
The design I came up with is a back mounted holder which loops through a normal belt. The magazine simply slides into the holder and is secured using a nylon strap and a velcro tab. It worked quite well and I was very satisfied with it in the field as it allowed me to carry a second 35 mag and gave me the ability to quickly draw it out to reload.
The only issue was the actual construction. As it was made with cardboard/duct tape/hot glue, it wasn't exactly solid, but has held up pretty good considering.
Alas I opted to upgrade and start version 2.0.
For the second version I decided to work with fibreglass. It is strong, light and very easy to mold and create smooth curves.
I had an old 35 mag in which the casing was cracked and went to work. I essentially stuck to the original design and the final product came out nicely. I lined the inside of the holder in both plastic and felt cloth. The plastic was used in the tip where the magazine slots in the the dart blaster. The body of the holder was lined with felt to give it a snug fit and reduce any rattling sounds that would give away your position as you moved.
I do not have pics with me at the moment, but if people are interested, I can certainly post some up.
