I want to keep a spare mag in my weak side back pocket. And, I was wondering if anyone has found (and has used) a pocket mag holder?

Heck, I'm not even sure if one exists, but I would envision one that looks like a pocket holster, but it holds a mag instead of a pistol.

I was thinking of getting an inexpensive wallet and sew up the side so the mag is snug... but was hoping that someone had some experience with one.

Thanks!

That's pretty nice work. I had a few of the Galco's but I sold them all. Sure would be a lot less expensive to do as you did, or stop playing musical chairs with handguns. This is one expensive hobby.

Is there any thing other than a 1911 45 single stack?

The pictured dual pouch slips into my back jeans pocket and doesn't pull out. The leather is flat on one side and a second piece is soaked adn folded over to reinforce the mouth and makes a tough smooth edge. It is molded over a stainless steel magazine and allowed to dry.
Then the mouth is glued down with contact cement and the top piece is also glued down [the magazines are reinserted when it is glued].
Then it is sewn with strong hand sewing saddle-makers thread and tweo needles.

Tools required, a sharp mind and knife.

Jim, I'm enjoying seeing your diy leatherwork. I love when folks take the initiative and make good functional things. It's usually not all that hard except to take those first steps to actually try.

Here is my version. Note the shape: fits the pocket with no moving and looks like a wallet...no printing. The little handle allows for quick one hand deployment and the split top makes it easy to pull a mag out with one hand. It is carried in the weak side rear pocket with the cover flap/handle facing out. No sweating problems and they are well protected. I have used this for a couple of years now with no problems in almost daily carry in one of the 3 versions I have.

Costs me about an hour of time to cut, handstitch and form and around $4 to make.

This version is for my RAMI 40 S&W. I have one made for my ParaOrd P-12 45, one for my Beretta 8040 and one is in the works for my CZ-82.
