    Sorry guys but my eyes are bleeding from searching.

    Will have my new carbine tomorrow and it comes with the two mag holder for the butt. I saw somewhere that someone had modded their carbine to accept the same two mags and holder up by the foregrip.

    I swear I have searched but I can't find it. Can anyone help a brotha out?

    Have not seen that, but I don't think it is something I would want to do. These things are heavy enough. Fact is I removed my mag holders from the stock. Loaded those things add a lot of weight to an all ready hefty piece. Once I hung it from a sling on my shoulder I decided I needed to lighten it up.

    I have seen this, but as a mod on a Kel-Tec SUB2000.
    And I believe it was a custom, by the owner... :confused:

    Can never have too much ammo in a gun fight.

    If you only could put one accessory on a carbine - it should be the mag holder and mags. That would be the last thing I would get rid of.

    I've humped 400 rounds of pig ammo in 110F weather with 100% humidity on top of my own gear. Hopefully I can handle 18 extra rounds in a 7 lb carbine.

    I was much younger then so it may be a deal breaker

    I'll be the cold water guy here, moving the mags to the front will still make the carbine weight the same.
    The OP wanted more magazines on his carbine.
    I'm not trying to talk you out of doing the mod, hell I'm thinking of doing it myself now!
    But if you want less weight on the carbine I suggest a fanny pack, back pack, sling bag or even a leg bag.
    I ask whatever you do decide you share with us and thanks for bring this up.

    Very cool and thanks for the pics on the first page. Not a bad idea at all. I have two 995TS, one has the foregrip (my son's) and the other doesn't (mine). I don't particularly care for a foregrip and I'm just use to not having one. Wonder how badly it would interfere with a comfortable grip if you don't use or have the foregrip?

    Then again, if it does interfere I suppose I could add a foregrip and simply fold it up. That's how I shot my son's 995TS before I bought my own.

    A couple of extra mags of ammo isn't a bad thing.

    I can't argue with that. ;)

    This got me thinking... What are the weights of my current configuration? Dug out my electronic scale and this is what I came up with.

    My current config. with 1 mag = 11.5lb. With 3 mags = 12.9lb. with 5 mags 14.3lb.

    Thinking about my use--- For home defense it would be # 3 in grabbing order. For target use I don't need mags attached. They ride in the range bag. If I were slinging through Zombie country I would rather have the extra ammo in my pocket, fanny pack and/or vest pockets. My shoulder nerves aren't what they were 45 years ago. :(

    YMMV...............

    Dang, Cruiser!
    You must have a 4595, otherwise the #'s are awfully high for 2 full mags!
    :eek:

    That was piling everything on the scale at once. Just weighed the 2 loaded mags by themselves. 1.1lb.

    Hel's belz a loaded M14 with a full mag, cleaning kit and sling is 11.25lbs. I don't need a 14lb 995TS. Then weigh up a 4595 with 29rds and all your toys. Mag pouches.

    underground, I like that idea there. I had an old leather 45 caliber magazine holder left over from my MP days. I used an old belt an affixed it to my stock, Works well, but I like what you did by getting another 2 magazine on it. Guess I know what my next buy is!
