Ammo pouches

Post by sapper44 »

What do Suomi M31 ammo pouches look like??? I have been thinking of gettin one for use with a AOK German impression and have no idea how extra mags were carried. Did the stick mags fit in MP40 pouches, or did they continue to use Finnish ones???

Indeed, mostly carried hanging from the leather belt with leather straps or stored in breadbag/gasmaskbag etc.

As a curiosity, it might be worth noting that there was indeed at least one type of purpose-made magazine holder made, a wooden case with belt loops for 50 round stick mags. That didn't exactly work out too well : ) I very much doubt that MP/40 pouches would accommodate 50 round sticks for Suomi, so anything other than improvised means of carrying was pretty much out of the question anyway.
