Default 4516-1 mag pouch ?

For my 4516-1, I presently have nylon clip on belt mag pouches.
They are not holding up very well. Since I have a very nice Don Hume holster I would like to get leather mag pouches instead.
I want something that fits as close to the body as my nylon ones do. I don't want pancake style I want clip on
Without a flap.
Maybe something with adjustable retention..
I have done a lot of searching online but wonder what you guys are using and what you're happy with as far as mag retention and concealability.
what are you guys using suggestions please and thank you in advance

I have two clip ons. One is from Safariland and one from Don Hume. I picked up the Safariland at the Police Supply a couple of decades ago. It was back when Safariland still used leather vice the "pleather" coating they have been using now.

The Don Hume, I got off Fleabay, again decade or so ago. They are out there. Check Gunbroker too.

MTR custom leather will make you what you want. They have a nice product, which they are VERY proud of. Good luck! Regards 18DAI

Are they open top or do they have a flap and snap ? I'm surprised I haven't gotten more of a response on this.

Open top. I used them in plainclothes. I never cared for "excessive" security devices. If I needed the gun, or a fresh mag, odds were - I needed it quick and in a hurry.

As far as weapons retention, my policy was they could have my gun. Bullets first.

Very few people carry these guns anymore. They don't lift weights or eat Wheaties either. Just salads. So, they don't want the "weight". Which probably accounts for the lack of responses.

Maybe some of the other Mossbacks will share what they use to use, back in the day. Regards 18DAI

What I use doesn't fit your open top requirement. I prefer a Safariland 123 nylon mag pouch. It lies horizontal on my belt and is very comfortable. No one has ever asked about it either.

I have a couple of nice leather open top mag pouches for the 4506 mags somewhere in a box in a closet. I'll PM you when/if I find them and see if you want them. I haven't used them in years and don't mind letting them go to a new home where they'll get some use.
