If the sideways mag of the Sten was such an issue they should have invented a reliable drum mag to replace the box mag poking out so far.

The Sten mag was not an issue in Europe but the Sten had a number of shortcomings in jungle conditions, the magazine was just one of these. The Owen was superior in reliability to any sub machinegun of it's era and as I said, the magazine position was not a problem. If the magazine position had been an issue, they would not have replaced the Owen with the F1:

Without the folding stock, the F1 is able to have a longer main tube. This means that you can separate the cocking lever from the bolt so that dirt doesn't get to the bolt and jam the gun as easily. For some reason the Aussies liked the idea that if you drop your gun in a muddy puddle, you can pick it up and it will shoot. The vertical mag again balances the gun better and doesn't catch as easily on heavy vegetation. Of course if you want a good looking gun rather than one which will work then the Stirling is much better :)

Had to rearrange the DCS ready for the arrival of my new MP7.

The new Warrior PC with modular front for velcro panels isn't too far off. Be very handy in the situation where you only want one rig but have multiple types of mags that require very different sizes of pouch.

I have seen it......VERY nice.

 

But I have my dcs already and can't justify changing it. This will work. I use the sabre drop leg aswell so all mags carried at once.

Because they've already shown an example that was close to a production piece? WAS is all made in china, they don't take very long to get the production going on things compared to the more gucci western gear manufacturers.

They're expected to be out in the summer this year, they said on Facebook. As for pricing, I'd imagine 150ish depending on which setup you buy. That's only speculation thiugh, they having said anything about pricing yet

Looks nice. Might have to trade up from the 901 for one of those.

How much will this be do you think? Same kinda price range as the current DCS range?

Probably. No actual idea but chances are slightly higher than the DCS given the functionality.

I would expect the base rig to be cheaper than the DCS (no MOLLE, lower production cost) however the panels will be the killer and will probably drag the price over that of the DCS

I don't think the base rig won't be cheaper than the DCS, they know people will buy it even if it's at the same price and probably even if it costs a bit more. The design is also more complex so even though you lose a bit of pals on the front the cummerbund and other bits will take up that loss and probably more. It's made of 500d rather than 1000 too so depending on fabric costs that is another potential increase in price.

I think it'll fall in line with the RICAS or possibly the raptor in terms of price, at least when it's first launched. Sales may reduce the price further down the line but the production costs is very much likely to be higher on this than the DCS which is much simpler.

To anyone who uses a small molle pack how useful are they in your average walk on shoot?

You can answer that for yourself. Think on the following; do the pouches on your belt/PC/vest not carry enough? If not, can you physically not add more to give enough capacity? Do you need even more equipment on you to keep yourself going and your gun shooting? Do you mind that extra equipment not being easily/quickly accessible (quite possibly requiring you to remove your whole rig to gain said access)?

 

Certainly for CQB I've never needed anything more than extra magazines carried in my gear. For larger outdoor sites I'll add water, but that's it. Obviously everyone has different loadouts and that's fine, but analyse what your experience has shown you to need and want to carry and avoid loadout-creep. If you physically cannot fit everything in to pouches and pockets that are easily accessible without taking your gear off, then go to a pack. Otherwise, I'd advise against it. Or consider a bandoleer/messenger bag style add-on or a pack that's not attached by PALS, far quicker and easier to get in to that way.
