Tactical gear is always evolving within the gun community. However, for AK47 enthusiasts new and updated gear is rarely available. Fortunately, the tactical gear community has grown as Beez Combat Systems has revolutionized chest rigs for AK47 operators. Implementing laser cut technology, Beez Combat Systems has changed the game by designing and introducing the AK47 Chest Rig GRID.
AK47 Chest Rig GRID: Implementing Laser Cut Technology
The GRID meets and exceeds all MIL-Spec standards and maintains durability as well as reliability. Compared to other AK chest rigs available on the market, the GRID fares just as well, while actually offering more benefits than its predecessors. Manufactured with 1,000 Denier Cordura, the laser cut technology actually reduces the chest rig’s overall weight and profile. A Velcro enclosure is included in the GRID, and each AK magazine is secured by individual elastic pull tabs on all five magazine slots. The laser cut MOLLE webbing is compatible for user configuration for additional magazines shingles, IFAK pouches, accessory pouches and even pistol magazine shingles. The GRID is also compatible with Beez Combat Systems Chest Rig MOLLE Belt (CRMB) by simply replacing the waist strap which includes one-inch buckles.

Laser Cut Technology
Laser cut technology has been available for quite some time, but it's only recently being utilized by manufacturers who put their customers’ satisfaction first. As laser cut technology has evolved, the process has become available for more complex gear to be manufactured. This gear may require more detailed manufacturing in order to uphold the safety standards and requirements that various professionals demand. Laser cutting can provide this level of detail. This technology has grown so much that even private security forces and government contractors can now take advantage of these advancements.
Laser cut technology is being utilized in leading industries throughout the military industrial complex, and it has even been made available to the general public. Tactical gear produced from laser cut technology maintains the same level of reliability while reducing the chance of ripping or tearing from additional sewing – issues commonly discovered with traditional gear. This is because MOLLE webbing is not sewn atop preexisting material when laser cut; instead, the laser precisely cuts the already existing material to allow the MOLLE webbing within it to the precise standards. This reduces the overall weight of the gear, as additional material is no longer needed and can be reduced.
With no need for additional material, manufacturing costs can also be lowered. The overall profile of the gear is also naturally reduced. Less stitching means less material buildup at various stress points located throughout the gear, which can later lead to excess rubbing and pinching while the operator is in movement.
Laser cut technology is especially beneficial for the AK community, as the AK47 Chest Rig GRID is one of the first pieces of reliable tactical gear made widely available for civilian purchase. The GRID is manufactured in the United States and is designed to enhance the AK operator’s efficiency in every aspect. A slimmer profile, reduced weight, and sturdy elastic pull tabs that the AK operator is free to adjust for personal comfort regarding their preferred rifle magazine retention. AK enthusiasts, those in both the firearms community and the airsoft community, will also enjoy the AK47 Chest Rig GRID's affordability.

Revolutionized, updated, and new gear is rarely available for AK operators, but now the AK47 Chest Rig GRID levels the playing field. It's well known that the AK rifle is closely compared to the AR rifle, and the debate trickles down to gear and accessories designed for each platform as well. Too often, AR operators have the upper hand regarding gear and accessories available to them. Now, the AK community will be proud to have new and reliable tactical gear to bring to the range.
