One of the most highly sought after pieces of Rhodesian Militaria; the very intriguing Rhodesian Chest Rig. This amazing Original example shows proper signs of wear and bears the original owners name on the front facing left side. Five-Cell Chest Rig designed to hold R1 Mag’s. Although showing some rust and coloration; all straps, D-rings, and press snaps are fully intact. The history of the Rhodesian made chest rig has become a lore in the modern world. The myth that Rhodesia “invented” the modern chest rig started during the Bush War when Rhodesian Soldier's came into contact with the Chinese manufactured “ChiCom” Chest Rigs, from there private manufacturers in Rhodesia began producing their own versions for the Rhodesian Security Forces to accommodate the FN FAL magazines, company’s such as Fereday & Sons and “North” of Salisbury. This Chest Rig in particular no longer has the “Fereday & Sons” Tag on the reverse but does bear the “Belconia” Press Snaps that were commonly used by Fereday & Sons.
