The RAM (Reinforced Ammunition Management) Elastic Insert  is our update to the antiquated Elastic Inserts found across the market. This design was born from two problems: one was the lack of any suitable AK magazine placards out there that addressed the issue of the locking lugs tearing up pouches. and the second was users wishing to have an easier time re-indexing magazines into elastic cells that lay completely flat when empty. To solve these issues we came up with a way to get Tegris Thermoplastic strips to line the side edges of each magazine cell so as to allow a magazine's rough lugs or pressure points to slide in and out without damaging the elastic that provides the magazine retention. This also helps keep the mouth of the elastic cell partially open at all times. This effectively offers the benefits of Kydex inserts without the impracticality of a pouch that is completely open.

The RAM Elastic Insert works in our ARC Placard V3 and other placards that are Hook & Loop Velcro lined and that are wide enough to accept the various caliber sizes we offer. This product is not compatible with the Spiritus Systems Microfight or Haley Strategic Micro Rig.

These are amazing! Been looking for pouches for ak mags and I really didn’t like what was out there. I’d use taco mag pouches but they’d get caught. With these, they fit snuggly and come out with ease. Definitely going to buy the quad 5.56 when they’re in stock.


Great fit on my Mayflower APC 40 round PMAGS work but a little too tall for my liking, other than that the fit and modularity is great!

Nerd pouch

The RAM elastic inserts are awesome , the nerd pouch is great too but I wish the pouch compartment had gusset on the side to keep items from falling out and to also help the flap stay partially open. Other than that I’m loving all of my Shaw gear

Triple 5.56 RAM insert

The ram inserts are easy to reindex and lower profile than Kywis


I'm finally able to use my Ak74 mags in my DOPE pouch without any issue. These inserts are the best. They're listed as 7.62 inserts, but 5.45 works perfectly.
