So i have a CA m14 and was wondering if yall knew whether or not the mags might fit into a m16 style mag pouch, Any knowledge and experience would be appreciated. Thanks

It depends on the pouch. For example, they most certainly would not fit any single M4 mag pouch. However, I have some pouches from SpecOPS that fit either 4 M4 mags or 3 M14/G3/FAL mags (or maybe it's only 2....I can't remember for sure now.)

In short, it really depends on the pouch maker. There are pouches out there that fit both, so just look around.

Most of the mag pouches I have experience with (2 M4 Mag capacity) will only hold 1 M14 mag. My brother has a 2x4 M4 Mag pouch that fits 3 snuggly. It works, but better get some Map Pulls on them. It also depends,like shakman said on the maker of the pouch. SpecOps are really good. Another thing is to look at the BUILD of the pouch. Some of the ones that have elestic somewhere on them will make for a tough to no fit. Take a mag with you if possible while shopping around....if not..I would go with SpecOps or Condor.

Alright, thanks for the help, I guess ill just have to look around and see what the m14 will fit into comfortably.

I have Condor dual M4 mag pouches on my vest, I use them currently to hold 3 MP5 mags in each pouch. If you're ever at TxPB you're welcome to test fit an M14 mag.

Tactical Tailor (http://www.tacticaltailor.com) makes a number of pouches designed, specifically, for magazines with the M14 footprint. If you would like a pouch which serves a dual role, they will handle M4 magazines, but perhaps not as well as you'd like.

I use these (http://www.gogeartactical.com/308.html) from GoGear. They are nicely made and compact.
