either magpulls to make it easier to pull the magazine out of webbing and increase loading times

or

a winding wheel becuase they are using Hi-cap mags

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

If im thinking of what you are talking about, depending on what version it is: they are called magpuls, ranger plates, L plates, speed plates, among others
These right?

Yep thats them, magpulls, what are they used for, just making it easier to pull out the mag and decrease reload speed, complete noobice question.

In short, yeah that's exactly what they're used for. Decreased time in taking the Mag out of a pouch

They do look cool as well so it's probably a bit to with that in Airsoft terms.

If by short on cash you mean, I don't own any airsoft gun and are a complete begginner then yes, nice idea, serves the same purpose without shelling out extra money

TBH they really dont, not even when you in the prone position. Personally I hate having mags at the front. My set up its really light atm, I run a belt with a double open top M4 mag holder on my left side, and another double on my leg platform, so in total I carry 4-5 450 hi caps on me if Im running light. also on the belt I run a droppouch and a pistol holster, but I normally drop that down on to my right leg and then have a mid utility pouch above the holster.

Heavy Im looking at getting a warrior plate carrier!
