Some people say that Submachine Guns are a thing of the past. We say to hell with that. It doesn't matter if you are storming the Iranian Embassy in 1980 or raiding a meth lab in the Bayou today, the Spiritus Systems Submachine gun inserts have you covered. 

Submachine Gun Magazine Inserts enable you to carry 4 magazines in either the front or rear pocket of your Micro Fight Chest Rig, or you can carry 8 magazines by placing a Submachine Gun insert into both the front and rear pockets of your Micro Fight Chest Rig Chassis. 

To accommodate the largest amount of magazines, we have built two different types of SMG Magazine Inserts. It is impossible for us to test every submachine gun magazine that is on the market today. That being said, the inserts are elastic and if your magazine is similar in size to the ones listed, it will probably work.

Sub machine gun inserts
Written by Dane Papsdorf on Dec 9th 2020

this product is awesome. works wonderfully in both the microfight panel and the HSP D3CRM rig. i’m running glock mags in it and it has just enough retention to hold them in but not too much to where you’re struggling to get them out. material is obviously no less than anything spiritus made, which is fantastic.

Very nice
Written by JOSEPH M FERRICK on Dec 8th 2020

I bought this insert specifically for my palmetto State armory AKV magazines, which are the same size as scorpion mags. The fit is very snug, but I'm sure it will break in a little bit over time, but still allow for a very secure fit. These inserts also accommodate for my GSG16's magazines. Even though this insert is not made for ump 45 mags, they can retain these types of magazines as well, although I don't know if I would necessarily recommend it just because of how tight the fit is. But, in a pinch, you do have that as an option.

Works great. Definitely has a break in period but I love the retention and ease of use.

Effective for holding, drawing and tactical reloads of Glock sticks
Written by Snoopy on Sep 17th 2020

I'm only using long Glock magazines. This setup nicely holds the sides of the micro rig apart, and the openings are little squares. The taper at the top of the Glock mags easily inserts - you all know what that's like and this experience is almost as satisfying. But more importantly it's fast - you don't want loading and drawing of magazines to last. "If you want to waste the bronze, you've got to be quick" as our friend Johnny the Boy says. I would have posted this review earlier, but I keep failing the CAPTCHA test.

Patagonia sling bag
Written by Gus Moe on Aug 3rd 2020

I used these bad boys with some velcro in tape purchased on amazon and velcroed these magazine inserts inserts inside my patagonia sling bag to carry extra pistol clips and a velcroed med kit, as a everyday carry. Low profile keeps everything organized and I use the last clip insert to insert my daily carry light. I wish I could post pictures

SMG Inserts
Written by frank on Jul 13th 2020

Fit MP5/SP5 mags perfectly. Also, my straight mags for Glocks work great too. Retention is very good for both, yet the mags come out when pulled, no problem. Its a good product so far. Also, use the other SMG insert for my larger/wider MPX mags. Have about 4 of each. Both work fine. *Dont have their proprietary system...never available, so use with other systems that I have to rig etc., but still very well worth it. Will be buying more soon.

Fits into my Haley Strategic micro chest rigs and holds the MP5 mags tight.

I was skeptical at first, but upon receiving my order, it fits my mags perfectly. I have no concerns when it comes to retention.

Great System

Although not intended for use with Vertx backpacks, this system works perfectly with the velcro lined section of the Vertx Gamut 2.0

For Use w/ASG Scorpion EVO airsoft replica
Written by Kris Costello on Mar 6th 2020

FIRST THING: If you are using this with the airsoft version of the Scorpion EVO, when you are first inserting the mags in, be CAREFUL that the feed lips do not break off. I Broke two whist doing so. This insert was designed for real 9mm Mags that use a totally different, and more robust Round-feeding technology. That being said, after a few minutes of the mags being inserted in the pouch, this problem is not as concerning. And as you use it more, it'll get the right shape and eliminate this issue. Whether you are hitting the range, or shooting your friends/foes with 6mm plastic bb's, these inserts, along with the Micro Fight Chest Rig are the right choice.

What can I say, simple, effective, modular and a a necessity for a versatile kit. I keep a micro separate with the sub gun insert In my pack for EDC and it’s perfection.

Excellent product. Allows you to carry a lot of dope in a small rig. Quality you’d expect from spiritus. Great retention and surprisingly easy to reinsert mags. Bingo

Spiritus SMG insert
Written by Andrew Tokarczyk on May 23rd 2019

I purchased this with the intent to use it in a Haley Strategic D3CRM as the Haley inserts never seem to be in stock. I can report that it fits perfectly! I use the larger option for scorpion mags. While intially it can be a pain to get the mags inserted, after some breaking in they slide right in. Re-indexing mags is easier than I thought it would be considering there is nothing holding the top open. Overall very please, seems like quality construction, time will tell. Happy with my purchase

Fits KP-9/KR-9 mags exceptionally well!!! Also, if you’re thinking about installing this is in a Haley Strategic chest rig, it fits quite nicely.

Perfect Fit, Form and Function
Written by Joe on Feb 21st 2019

I ordered the MP5/Glock magazine option for 33-round 9mm Glock magazines. The item arrived quickly. The magazines fit perfectly and had no unwanted movement. I installed the insert in my MK. 3 chest rig using cardboard pieces. The centered insert had a little room on each end inside the chest rig slot. (I could probably jam a chemlight in the space) I jumped up and down, did a handstand, twerked and danced the hustle. The magazines stayed put. I fully recommend this insert if you're running a pistol caliber carbine.

Written by Jesus Ibarra on Jan 15th 2018

This item is perfect, I'm running 4 extended glock mags, and was initially worried they might ride too high and loose, but I placed the insert high and the mags fit dip into the rig and are very sturdy.
