So I've got a ranger green Recon Kit bag and want to run it similar to a chest rig with some magazine pouches, Kicker is I want to run GSR mags. I've been looking at pictures on here and have seen what looks like Blue Force Gear 10 Speed pouches. I like that idea for the GSR mags but not sure if the shorty 10 speed pouch would work or not for GSR. 

Does anyone have experience running practical rifle magazines on their kit bag? I plan 1 or 2 mag pouches on the front. (30 rounds total, more rounds in my bag).

BFG makes M14 pouches that will work better for GSR mags. I've stuck them on my heavy recon kit bags. Here's a picture for reference. I didn't push the 10 round metal ruger mag in all the way, but it will fit.

Is that the full size M14/308 mag pouches? I'm thinking of running a double or triple shorty if I can get it in Ranger Green.

It's the Ten-Speed Triple 308 Mag Pouch

I apologize for necroposting, and if this has been posted here before, but how well does the recon kit bag act as a standalone chest rig? Thinking about putting two BFG elastic pouches in the front for small items on the trail and my AR15 magazines on the range. It's the weight of two or three magazines on the front that I'm afraid might cause it to sag a bit.

You can carry 3 AR Mags in the rear using a BFG Dapper or similar. It won't zip over Magpul 30 rounders but is fairly low profile. Attache some small pouches to the front side of the Recon for Pistol or Admin.
