Sig Sauer MPX Holiday Kit – 3 mags and a pouch for under $100
Sig Sauer MPXs are extremely popular in the pistol caliber carbine world. They can be found for around $1200 for a slightly used one or pay premium at an MSRP of around $1800. The magazines are 30 rd duble stack mags made for Sig exclusively by Lancer Systems. They are smoke polymer and with a very easy DIY hack, you can increase capacity to 35 rounds.

But did you know there there are two variations of the Sig Sauer MPX magazines? Aside from capacity differences, there are magazines for the generation 1 MPXs and different magazine for generation 2 MPXs.
The differences are sublte. The Gen 1 magazines have black followers and the gen 2 magazines have FDE followers. The feed lips have also changed. The Gen 1 mags have cut outs in the feed lips compared to the full length Gen 2 feed lips.
The gen 1 mags will work in Gen 2 MPXs. This ia a considerable savings. Gen 2 MPX magazines have an MSRP of $60. Gen 1 magazines can be found for only $20 on our site. Click here to check them out.
Well there is an even better deal, the Holiday Kit three pack. It is on our site for $75. Earlier this year it was as low as $60.
The triple mag pouch kit comes as shown.
The pouchs come in either molle or velcro backed versions. All of the Holiday Kits are velcro backed.
The velcro works well in my Vanquest IBEX-20 backpack. The IBEX-20 has loop velcro lining the main compartment so I can carry my Gen1 MPX in the backpack and the pouch keeps the magazines at the ready.
The triple mag pouch also works well for storing your suppressor. Just remove one of the magazines and slide your suppressor inside. It fits my Osprey45 just fine so it will work with traditional round pistol suppressors.
If you do not have a bag with a loop velcron lining and you want to attach the triple mag pouch to molle, there is a solution.
The Vanquest Mohl-Air molle adapter is used to convert molle pouches to velcro. However it can be used to do the opposite.
Attach the Mohl-Air panel to your PALS loops on your range bag using the gray velcro loops. Then you can just stick the triple mag pouch to the Mohl-Air. Of course this is not a permanent solution. I would not recommend using this to attach the velcro triple mag pouch to a vest or plate carrier. Nor would it be a good idea to attach it to the outside of a bag with fully loaded magazines. It could be pulled off rather easily. This would be perfect for range bags that have molle inside the bag. My Eagle Industries soft rifle case has a section of molle panels inside the front accessory pocket. Which would be perfect for this setup.
