MP40 MP38 Magazine Pouch Pair - Khaki

Stock Status: In Stock

The MP 40 was a submachine gun developed in Nazi Germany and used extensively by the Axis powers during World War II. The Maschinenpistole 40 ("Machine pistol 40") descended from its predecessor the MP 38, which was in turn based on the MP 36, a prototype made of machined steel. The pouches were used by soldiers to carry magazines for quick access during battle. The Type 3 is the most common pouch of all the pouches, 3 cell pouches were designed to fit the soldier’s belt and Y-Strap. First line NCO’s carried 2 pouches with a total of 6 magazines. The left pouch had a smaller compartment sewn to the pouch body in which the magazine loader and the magazine brush were carried.

Each individual cell has its own flap and fastener, which came in different gradients of brown or black leather often with a polished look. Initially the fasteners were made of canvas with square or triangle metal tips, but over time, it was changed to leather fasteners with square metal tips. Later on the fasteners were manufactured without the metal tips.

This is a MP40 magazine pouch set, a reproduction based on the version used in World War 2. It is quality made of canvas, soft leather fasteners, painted black, with coated metal buttons and D rings to allow for attaching to Y-Strap or carry straps. It is detailed with M.P.38n.40. marked on both of the back pockets, and WaA564 eagle insignia stamped into the leather of the back right pocket. It is designed with 6x pouches and 1x pocket, in 2 sections, and can hold 6x Magazines, as well as loader and brush. Pouches can be worn with Y-Straps, and belts up to 6.5cm wide.

Button colour may differ from black to brass depending on stock.
