New BSG Tactical Pistol Rig Belt

Recommended Posts

Some of you might have already tried this. Get the funky buckle on to your 2" wide police tactical belt.

 

 

I started with the belt I got from MD Carlton in Canada... After about an hour of trying to get the buckle on, I gave up. I figured I would have to remove the edging tape and then cut down the belt to about 1.75" wide and then sew the edging tape back into place.

 

Well today, I went to Cheaper Than Dirt in Fort Worth and got one of their $9.95 police tactical 2" belts that came with two sideways pistol mag pouches.

 

Step one: I removed the pouches from the belt.

 

Step two: I unfolded the end of the belt and removed the Side release buckle.

 

Step three: I placed the end of one of the sides of the belt into the buckle, making sure the correct side (the side without the writing) was face up.

Step four: I used pliers to pull the end though the tight opening of the buckle.

Step five: I got the buckle where I wanted and then folded in closed.

Step six: Repeat other side.

Step seven: Position buckle so it fits properly when you close the belt.

That's it!

Now if only my pouches would show up!

My question is : Where did you find the buckle?

Well I'm happy to say that this was one of my discoveries. After many exhaustive searches done by several people, including myself, over at ASAP I finally figured out the correct search terms to find that bloody buckle. No small thanks to the guys at ASAP.

 

The buckle is made by AustriAlpin and can be seen HERE. It is a paragliding/parachuting harness buckle. Search for Austrialpin Cobra Buckle, the model number is FC45B.

 

I got my buckle at Torrey Pines Gliderport website, but I don't see the exact buckle on there at the moment.

You think the work for that is bad try getting a Bianchi 1.75" belt to fit. Those suckers are THICK. The male half was a such a pain. On the plus side there's no the bunching at the buckle like on Dan's belt because mine's not as wide. On the minus side the belt fed though the male end is shreaded to death (fortunately covered by pouches).

 

Will have to post pics later, it's really cool. Just need to get around to scratchbuilding a holster for my FN blaster.

For the belt keepers, I pushed them over to the inside of the belt and it looked just like on the show:

The belt came from Cheaper than dirt and cost about $16.00 with extra pouches. The pouched seen in this stuff are from MD Charlton through Viking. The pouched ran about $250.00 CAD.

*groans*

 

Oh man, $16?

 

I paid almost three times that at my local surplus store for my Smith and Wesson "police belt" as they called it. *They don't really know what they carry at the best of times*

 

Looks the same as your belt Dan, I might just have to add that belt to my list of "Things to make".

 

It's not like they make for a good SG vest belt, trust me. Falling backward at a con, with my belt open made it bend into a point and jabbed me in the back.

OK, next tutorial on the Frakin' rig...

 

 

How to turn the pager pouch into the BSG USB quad port pouch (and not buy another handcuff pouch):

PICT0085.jpg

 

Step 1: Take your pager pouch and open it up

PICT0124.jpg

 

Step 2: Cut the top flap almost off, but don't cut the edging tape on one side intact.

PICT0125.jpg

 

Step 3: Remove the edging tape from around the partly cut off flap

PICT0126.jpg

PICT0127.jpg

 

Step 4: Finish cutting the top flap off

PICT0128.jpg

 

Step 5: Remove velcro from back of the flap

PICT0130.jpg

 

Step 6: Cut the edging tape so part can be used for to line the flap and part can line the back of the pouch that was cut when the flap was removed.

 

PICT0131.jpg

PICT0132.jpg

 

Step 7: Sew the edging tape on the back of the flap

PICT0133.jpg

 

Step 8: Sew the edging tape on the sides of of the pouch.

PICT0134.jpg

 

Step 9: Glue down the edging onto the cut edge of the pouch

PICT0135.jpg

PICT0136.jpg

 

Step 10: Sew the final stitched

PICT0138.jpg

 

Step 11: The page pouch top flap, take it and put it under the latex glove pouch flap on the handcuff flap.

PICT0140.jpg

PICT0141.jpg

 

Step 12: Trace the shape of the latex glove pouch flap on to the pager pouch flap

PICT0142.jpg

 

Step 13: Cut the pager flap down to match the latex glove pouch flap

PICT0143.jpg

 

Step 14: Take the velcro that was cut from the pager pouch flap and sew it to back of the cut pager pouch flap

PICT0144.jpg

PICT0145.jpg

 

Step 15: Take the edging tape from the pager flap and sew it back on all around the edge.

PICT0146.jpg

 

Step 16: Sew the newly modified pager flap to the front edge of the cut pager pouch

PICT0148.jpg

 

And this is what you get:

Take your quad USB port and with the darkside facing the front insert into the pager pouch

And put it on your belt!

OK, Next Tutorial part... The Frakkin Handcuff pouch with latex glove pouch conversion:

PICT0157.jpg

PICT0158.jpg

 

Step 1: Take you Frakkin' expensive handcuff pouch with latex glove pouch and cut off the edging tape from the handcuff pouch. Leave the part covering the flap with the latex glove pouch intact.

PICT0159.jpg

PICT0160.jpg

 

Step 2: Cut off the flap with the latex glove pouch off. (in the picture its cut off at an angle, but later I just cut right across the top even with the top of the latex glove flap), the tapper cut the top corners so you end up with a superman diamond like shape.

PICT0161.jpg

 

Step 3: Glue the inside of the edging tape around the top of the latex glove flap about 3/4" and press it in place so it is even with the top edge

PICTURE BEING REDONE

 

Step 4: Cut the edging tape around the top of the latex glove flap so it is even with the top edge

PICTURE BEING REDONE

 

Step 5: Then sew it down and trim. It should look like this when you are done

PICT0162.jpg

 

Step 6: Cut off the belt attachment straps from the back of the handcuff pouch

PICT0163.jpg

 

Step 7: Take the strap, it has velcro sewn on it, find the fuzzy side, let the strap hang down with the fuzzy side is against the velcro (hook side) on the back of the latex glove flap/pouch.

PICT0166.jpg

 

Step 8: Take the hanging end of the strap, and folding strap up to the top of the flap/pouch

PICT0167.jpg

 

Step 9: Line up the bottom of the velcro on the straps just above the top of the pouch and sew in place

PICT0168.jpg

 

Step 10: Cut the hook side velcro end off of the top of the latex glove pouch

PICT0169.jpg

 

This is what you should end up with:

PICT0170.jpg

PICT0171.jpg

 

Step 11: Burn to seal the top of the nylon and edging tape to keep them from fraying

PICT0172.jpg

 

Step 12: Put newly contructed latex glove pouch on to your tactical belt

PICT0173.jpg

 

And repeat for the second handcuff with latex glove pouch.

Desperately need a sewing machine. I was trying to get all these done for a party tonight along with a holster and my fingers hurt too much for me to have any further inclination.

 

Thanks for posting this, Dan. Gave me the nerve to hack up those pouches to make them more accurate.

I found a tactical nylon "wrap around" holster at my local surplus store, I'm going to try to see if I can't get the Season 2 BSG pistol to work in it, as well as the Genii (TimeCop) Pistol. I'll take some pictures soon before moding it for my BSG rig.

Since the MD Charlton duty gear has been discontinued, has anyone found anything similar that can be substituted?

Some people are just using any nylon police pouches, but I suggest using "molded" nylon pouches since they would be closer. I think Bianchi makes a pretty nice rig. Or if you are on a budget, try Cheaperthanddirt.com, and look for there cheap nylon police tactical belt with pouches.

Bianchi makes a series of duty gear called "Accumold" which is very close to the stuff Dan ordered but not as expensive. It's available through most police supply dealers. It's not exact but it's pretty close.

Where does one get that nifty quad USB hub?

 

 

I too would like to know what brand and where to purchase please!!!

 

Dan Kim (the original poster) would be the man to ask. I checked the flightsuit costume guides, but it doesn't appear to be listed. Shoot him a PM and I'm sure he'll give you the make/model of what he's using there.

Been doing Medieval and Roman reenactment for years and I have to say this beats getting hit, as I get older.
