Hello,



Not really a specialist of the MP40 pouch but I own the same pouch.
Sorry with my so bad english

Found by a friend of mine in the south west of France 3 month ago.
This friend is not a german WW2 collector;

It was found in a farm of a french resistant, this resistant (partisan is maybe the good word ) shoted at the end WW2.

This pouch was found with a nice MP38 and his nice muzzle cap , with the 3 magazines filled with ammunitions all dated 1942, and the loader.

All those last informations are only here to inform you that all is coherent with a WW2 production pouch..

(all munitions presents on this photo are deactivated)
(I do not have the MP38, neither muzzle cap)

Interesting to see another one of these pouches. With an interesting history on the pouch.

I was certainly incorrect in my earlier opinion regarding my doubts on the webbing.

Now check this one:
http://www.raskantik.com/varergr/v-d.../pd2209/pd.htm

Apart from everything else you would like to say about this one; check the carrying strap (probably not original to this pouch). One of the two original hooks has been lost and has been replaced with a look-alike construction....

Link was valid, but he removed the item listed for sale during the night! It was a 6 mag pouch in tan with light brown leather, with yeardate "4" and a three letter code. Pouch looked very promising and was priced at a mere € 3750,-
The reason I added the link was the fact that it had the ammo-belt carrying sling with the civilian type of hooks that has been observed on original pictures earlier in this thread! Sorry for leading you on .....

Not very good pictures of the sling. It has one of the civilian hooks intact, while the other one has been "replaced".
How this sling was paired with a mint late war 6 pouch is another question...
