Introducing HANN Banger Clips!

Post by K9Troop » Tue Mar 19, 2013 3:03 pm

I wanted a multipurpose and functional system that could be easily manipulated with gloved hands for rapid deployment and stowage with a price point that appealed to our hobby. I believe we’ve created just that and I’m proud to introduce the HANN Banger Clip!

Image

Image

Genesis: Every pouch I’ve used never fit cylindrical airsoft implements quite right due to the different dimensions and shapes from their real steel counterparts. Either too big or too small, I wanted a purpose built platform for this aspect of our hobby. I approached a friend of mine with this idea after I had seen a different variation online. After a few different prototypes we settled on the below design.

Image

Construction: The Clip is MOLLE/PALS and belt friendly with the use of the included Tactical Tailor MALICE clip made of injection molded plastic. The “L” bracket is formed from .8 thick Kydex while the clip portion is formed in .93 thick Kydex. The additional thickness in the clip portion allows for that tell tale Kydex “Click”. Additionally, forming from the added thickness compensates for stretching that will occur, even from heat molded plastic.

Image

Functionality: The HANN Banger Clip is capable of receiving anything from AI Tornado Grenades to any variation of the Thunder B shells.

Image

Testing: I’ve had the Tornado and Thunder B in these pictures clipped in for well over 3 weeks and there hasn’t been any loss of retention. The clip holding the tornado has stretched to the circumference and held, same with the Thunder B. In addition, I’ve logged over 8 miles hiking and running outdoors and in with these attached to my PC. I also navigated a military grade obstacle course in 4 separate evolutions without incident. I’m happy to report that no amount of bumping, rolling, jostling or slapping resulted in unintentional release.

Price and Availability: The first batch is hot off the line and will be available at the MAA member sales table for $15 ea. during the Minnesota Airsoft Convention!

If it fits a tornado would it possibly for a 20oz Mtn Dew? I love the concept and it would blend good with the interior of my blazer

Unfortunately, due to the lack of rigidity (squishiness) of a pop bottle once the pressure is released it wont hold. It was a great thought so I ran to the fridge and tried it! If you're looking for something custom like this, shoot me a PM and let me know, tacticoozy?

I would have to figure out where to mount it to. Plus I would have to make sure it holds the pop good because I like to do a little off roading

Personally I don't own any grenades, but I took a look at these at the con and I am quite impressed by the design and the quality.

And we're interested in your feedback as well! The initial launch of the HANN Banger Clips was awesome, I sold out of my first batch in a little under 2 hours and the response at the CON was great! I met with my partner this morning and he's already started on the second round having punched out another 20 over the weekend. Stay tuned on how to order outside of F2F and we look forward to hearing from all those that purchased one on Saturday.

With feedback and field testing from players, HANN has introduced the Gen 3 Banger Clip. It adds improved shock cord, shock cord retention notch and a slimmer back plate design. Be sure to pick one up from either OpFor Airsoft or Airsoft Station, your local MN retailers!

Thanks to MNairsoft1 for the great review, hook up your local youtuber and throw him some views, see below!
