I just got an e.r.t sling for the ps90 and I wanted to get some dual magazine holders. But before I buy I was wondering if there is enough clearance for the dual magazine to work the e.r.t sling? Any one running these two combined? image.jpg

Looks like it's good to go. :? Getting the Damage industries ones??? They are the best, and won't damage the magazines.

Top picture, upper magazine. In backwards? Should not the smaller portion of the mag be furthest from the clamp? Maybe I don't know how the clamps work but the second picture appears correct.

LOL!!!

Yup, second picture it is correct position.

Wanted to show the clearance under the mag. Only one I could find that had an Urban ERT sling.

I see. I thought he meant the front sling attachment point that was threaded through the mag well when he meant the rear sling attachment point which wraps around the butt stock. I have the ERTs on my PS90's and FS2K and never gave that another thought though I am happy that there does not seem to be an issue at the butt end based on the pictures.

I can verify that there is no issue with the front attachment point of the ERT's and the mags so long as the buckle is not placed in the mag well area.

I still do not see the benefit of the clamp though. Bear with me and I welcome your input on this.

Once the mag is emptied, I have to wrap my hand around the clamp area and use my thumb and forefinger to push the mag release back to release the mag. Once the mag is released, I have both mags in the palm of my hand and now I have to withdraw the mags from the mag well and rotate the mags 180 degrees lengthwise meaning that the back of my hand is now between the full mag and the mag well so I have to move my hand out and then re-grab the magazines to push it into seating position. From the shoulder area, I can see having some difficulty with this with the firearm in the horizontal (firing) position but not as much if the firearm is slinged and resting against my chest in the vertical position. Does this not hinder the design which is to increase the speed of mag changes under fire?

I know that nothing is perfect and this appears to be a good compromise.

I would like some input from members that have use these clamps and whether they feel that they are beneficial or not.

Not to derail the thread OP, but as we are looking at potential hindrances in the use of these clamps, I thought that this is a valid follow up.

I have to agree with this....In an AR/AK situation, I can see the benefit...drop, flip, slam, shoot....but it seems like it would be easier to carry mags in a leg or chest holster and just become proficient and changing mags
