Standard long slim Mk5s can be carried just slotted into MOLLE weave if wearing a vest, then for lots I’d use a general purpose MOLLE pouch 

I’ve used a British Army old style notebook cover/pouch which I had sewn MOLLE straps to the back of (Originally I had set it up with Paintball 10 round tubes and 12gram co2 bulbs for pistol play

Molle for me. I usually have m4 pouches on the bottom, pistol pouches on my top right and space on my top left for a few mk4/5

I actually think sticking them through the molle is one of the worst ideas. I reguarly see people going to strike them only to find the striker is shot off.

You can rectify that by not getting shot ;D 

 

In all seriousness.. it’s never happened to me and I’ve never seen it. But I have had wet strikers playing outside. I always keep a dry striker and an arc lighter in a pocket somewhere if the need arises

True - but  the bit I omitted to mention - the striker cap also fitted on my belt, or the lighter in my pocket

 

A few years back people were selling rail mount strikers, the top was a rail riser and the side had a striker pad.

Unfortunately a very nieche item

Didn’t buy one, made my own for free - striker from a grenade, a belt and electrical tape !

Replace when worn out - but I’ve not needed to

Don’t want to make a dodgy sales post.

But I’ve got hold of the guy who made them if you’re really interested

 

He even made dog tag ones !

If you look up ‘UKScenario.com’ on Facebook that’s the FB Page from the old forum of the good old days

 

‘Alex Carney’ on there is the guy that I’ve tracked down who had made the tactical strikers and dog tag strikers 

 

https://m.facebook.com/UKScenario/?ref=ts&fref=ts

 

Contact him and he should manage to sort something 

 

(The ghetto way is to keep hold of an old striker and/or carry a lighter for emergencies, but he made a more reliable & better looking system!)

 

Ring pulls of course trump strikers but they either cost more or aren’t practical for things like a Mk5!
