M14 mag pouches. They're common.

Any specific capabilities you want?

Otherwise, any M14 or SR25 mag pouch will work (I don't know if AK pouches will, but I don't see why not). If you want something a little different, look at 7.62 Fastmags or Esstac KYWIs (I'm getting some KYWIs soon myself).

AK mags (and pouches) are really long/deep compared to M14/417 mags.

have you guys actually ever tried the 417 mags in any of these pouches before?

I have pouches in my vest that fit AK... M14... but the 417 wont come close...

I've seen specific pouches like this (Blue Force Gear Ten-Speed HK417) from searching but no local dealers have this stuff in stock

True, I forgot 417 mags are shorter than normal 30 rounders. M14 mag pouches if you want plain old, or Esstac KYWI 7.62 shorties if you want something a little sleeker would be your best bets.

Edit: Just saw your post. Are those M14 mag pouches single? I think the 417 mags are thicker than normal M14 mags, so you may need M14 doubles to fit a 417 mag. And no, I don't own any 7.62 guns... (STANAG master race)

417 mags are huge, you need a double m14 for any chance at fitting. There's also 417 specific pouches from various higher end real steel companies. If you've never handled one, think g36 mag but almost 2x the size because of the lips and shape.

HSGI Taco pouches are the god of magazine pouches. They will fit anything, and convert to anything else in seconds.

Evike now has TM 417 pouches, cheaper than Blue Force but still expensive

The 417 is bulky like a sig mag. I'm trying to find what pouches will fit a sig mag myself
