Sotech Tomcat

Does anyone have a guide on how the magazine pouches are adjusted to fit various types? I've assembled gear for a while now, and these velcro pouch dividers have me stumped. I emailed Sotech and haven't heard from them, and a search on the board brought up nothing. 

Thanks in advance,

Huh that is some weird shit.  Have no idea what Jim was up to there.  That's a lot of 2" webbing and Velcro, by today's standards.  I modified a bunch of his chest rigs back in the day but never saw that shit.  I would cut all that crap out of there myself and just rig with bungee pull tabs.  Would also replace all 2" webbing n hardware with 1" stuff.  He really liked 2" webbing for some reason.

The velcro gadgetizing on the Tomcat mag pouches  was to enable using the rig with pretty much any 7.62 mag from AK47-ish 30 rounders to M1A/M14 20 rounders to G3 20/30 rounders to FN FAL 20/30 rounders. 

They're a little confusing to figure out at first, but once you get the adjustment process worked out it makes more sense than it seems.  Think of the 2" webbing "U" inside the pocket as an adjustable floor to accommodate different length mags. 

AND.... on my Tomcat I never had an issue with them losing adjustment once they were fit to the mag.
