Very good copy of cartridge bags for the Mauser 98 rifle and Mauser 98k carbine. Looks like original mint. Leather of surface dyeing is 2 mm thick (for lids and pockets) and 3 mm thick (for the back wall and straps) is used. Granulation of the correct size is on the surface. The color is black on the outside and natural beige from the inside. All cuts are finished with a clear varnish. Metal parts are aluminum, accurately repeating the original to the smallest detail. There are dividers in each pocket, made not of ordinary leather (as on cheap copies) but of hard material. Stamped KURT WEHNER 1939 MÜNCHEN on the back side.

Sure you can use original pouches for the reenactment, but they have one big drawback: the tongues often come off. Even more, the “old” pouches, even if they are well preserved to this day, “get tired” quickly and look like leather bags... But our new ones are strong, have a neat rectangular shape and a nice look.

A frontline soldier had 2 pouches (rearward soldiers had usually 1 pouch). Price for 1 pair (2 pouches).

Historical reference.

Such "cartridge bags" for the Mauser rifle of 1998 (Patronentasche - cartridge bag from German) were used in the First and Second World War. The most massive production pouch of the German soldier of the XX century.
