Default MP44 Pouches - Again

Hello,

I know these get posted quite a bit and most are bad. This pair appear to have the right hardware, including yellow tan Presstof lid sides marked with ros 1944, and proper material.

Are these better fakes, or originals?

Thanks for the help.

Fakes made from original material. One big giveaway is the strap closures; they should be a different kind of webbing and have woven stud holes, not sewn like these.

Thanks for taking a look - they sure are getting good at reproducing these.

I hear you, I think it's the prices they can go for which is spurring on the fakers to try and catch the unwary.

I have seen these repro's sell on E Bay for around $1200 - $1500 USD a couple of years ago.
