Limitless Gear’s OPFOR polymer mag holders now crowdfunding (VIDEO)

Limitless Gear LLC, a Virginia based start-up, has just opened up their crowdfunding efforts on Indiegogo.com.  Their $100,000 goal is really ambitious.  In the first two days on Indiegogo, they’ve raised just over $3,000.  That’s a long way to go, but we can help.

OPFOR is a tricky name.  In military parlance, it means opposing force.  This is the squad that plays the role of the enemy in training exercises.  For the Limitless Gear OPFOR, it may more accurately describe the physical device that holds the magazines in place: a polymer leaf spring that catches a magazine’s catch.  The result is a mag holder with positive retention and an open top.

The OPFOR is made of polymer.  They’re light, modular and available in black or coyote brown.  It works with traditional 5.56 magazines, and polymer mags, too.  The back of the OPFOR has four claws that catch MOLLE webbing.  Because there’s positive retention on the magazine, the OPFOR can be worn with the magazine facing up or down.  The can be attached to plate carriers, vests, leg rigs, or bags.  The front side of the OPFOR has slots that allow for more modularity.  You can stack up OPFORs, or clip on another pouch.

Simply insert the magazine and the spring will catch.  To remove the mag, twist and pull.  The force of a simple twist is enough to release the OPFOR’s hold on the magazine.  It is a simple, natural motion, but not one that’s likely to occur unless you are intentionally puling a magazine.  So there’s very little chance they’ll come loose.
