US M1 Carbine mag pouch to carry 2 x 15rd mags on the belt.
Standard Carbine magazine pouch carried by the US Army in WW2.
This is the model with a full belt sleeve and a press stud on the back to fix it onto the matching press stud on the pistol belt. Pouch only, does not include the magazines.
This is the pouch that is often seen worn on the butt stock of the M1 carbine, although it was originally not designed to onto the butt stock by the US Army the troops found that it fitted on and was a good way of carrying extra magazines.
To fit the pouch onto the carbine you have to slide the pouch over the end of the barrel (remove the magazine) and gently work it down the barrel, over the trigger and sight (this is where its a tight fit, just take your time and move the pouch a bit at a time) and keep going until you get to the wood butt stock.
Colour: OD # 3 (khaki - tan)
