The MTR Custom single mag carrier is designed for scenarios where you need to a comfortable and efficient way to carry a spare magazine. This model is available in 3 different carrying configurations:
Please note that the MTR Leather single magazine carrier is designed to be shooting hand specific as they utilize the best practice of a weak-side bullet forward draw. For example, a RH shooter would choose the RH option as the magazine is designed to be worn on his/her left side with the bullets in the magazine facing inward. This allows the magazine to be drawn with the left hand (weak hand) for an up and over type of magazine change. Although it may sound confusing, it really isn’t. A RH shooter would choose a RH option while a LH shooter would choose a LH option.
Here are some of the commonly asked questions that we see regarding this single mag carrier:
#1 – What do you recommend as the “best” attachment method?
In all honesty, there really is no true "best" method. The answer to that question really depends on your needs and personal preferences as each carrying method has pros and cons. The belt slot is the most traditional and most secure, but also the most difficult to put on or take off as one has to undo the belt in order to it off or on. The clip-on style gives you the ability to quickly take the carrier off or on, but some worry that the clip might not grip during a time of need (not something that we commonly see, but always a possibility). The snap-on option is slightly more difficult to get on or take compared to the clip-on, but significantly quicker than the traditional belt slot model. The one directional snap can take some getting use to and might be a bit challenging the first few times.
#2 – I’m still a little confused about this whole RH or LH thing with a single mag carrier. Can you provide more of an explanation?
Sure, the most widely accepted way for a quick and efficient magazine change is to have the mag positioned on the weak side of the body with the bullets in the magazine facing inwards towards the belly button of the shooter. The idea behind that concept is when the magazine is drawn from the carrier, the shooter simple has to rotate the wrist upward and the mag is in a position that ready to be inserted into the firearm in the correct position to be accepted by the firearm. It’s actually far easier to show than to actually explain in words so check out this video. The mag carrier in this video is set-up in the manner being described.
#3 – I understand the “suggested” way of doing a magazine change, but I still prefer to keep the spare magazine on my strong side and reach across my body to draw the magazine. In that scenario, which shooting hand should I select for the mag carrier?
If you are RH and wanted to carry on the strongside (your right side) but still wanted to draw with your left hand, you’d still want to choose a RH magazine so when you draw the mag, the rounds are still oriented in a manner for optimal transition into the pistol.

I would give the mag holder 5 stars except that I find it somewhat difficult to remove it when I need to. For example : I needed to enter my local court house and needed to leave the mag. and pistol locked in my vehicle. i had a an aggravating time removing the mag holder as the spring clip would not flex enough to allow easy removal.

I have two of these now for different models. Very light, compact and has a sewn on belt loop. High quality for the price and well fitted.

I like the holster and it fits the mag just fine. However I would have "loved" it more if it were about a 1/12 inch deeper. Too much of the mag., shows.

Worn with Deluxe Snap On Holster that was delivered the week before. Perfect addition to holster. Same high quality workmanship. Extremely happy with both purchases.

A quality mag holder. Attaches and detaches quickly from belt with just the right amount of tension on the belt clip. Nice leather finish on the body of the pouch .

Very happy with the magazine carriers. Great leather, good mahogany color and tight and highly functional product. Would recommend for Glock 21SF magazines.
