Double three cell again from "Uniformi" magazine.

Sometimes hard to distinguish in photos from the Banjo rifle case pouches in wartime photos .

One last photo of Pouches being worn by RSI troops . I would think if the Germans took and used MAB s they would also have used Italian pouches also besides the modified mp40 pouches

Hello, i am very surprised to discoved one Italian SS divisionÂ… and this SS "Italian's smock" was just gorgeous!!Â… Probably a "must" to find!!...
Thank's for the pictures. this post is very detailed and very interesting.
I don't know all the story but what i know is the German's Wehrmacht and SS used a lot of Italian's stuff left behindÂ… after the surrender, i mean they captured "all" that they could captured, from the camouflage material to a single messkit "Made in Italy"!. They even still produced some Italian 9mm parabellum submachine-guns in Germany... In 1944?? In action, German's used to adjust their own K98 for at least a 1km rangeÂ… I had a sling made by the German for the MP38/42 but i can't find where i put the pictures!! Very similar to the MP40...
Your pictures are historicalÂ… I don't mean to offend you but imo they are good lookings!! Small amo at the end of the war was good only for pistols! Myself, i would have prefered a K98 to an MP40!! I'm sure that the German's Paratroops in Kreta have had the same thought! But Histoty is history!

Just to be clear . Only the first set of pouches posted are in my collection . The rest are taken from photos in the magazine.

This is a sten: Italian militia captured and used many of the ones sent to partisans.

Remember that magazines were only for 10, 20, 40 shots: there was no 30 shots magazine. Only post war was introduced a 30 shots model for the LF57.

Interesting photo: you can see a model 38A for the PAI, produced only on 1938/39.
This was the only model with the folding bayonet (until the post war Egyptians ones).
