Price for 1 pc. (not for a couple).

A copy of the cartridge bag for the Mauser 98 rifle and the Mauser 98k carbine. Surface-dyed leather with a thickness of 3 mm, with a grain of the correct size, was used. The color is black on the outside, natural beige on the inside. The fittings are aluminum, but the rivets are partially steel. There are dividers in each pocket. Without stamps.

Only with close examination up close can you notice some simplifications. For example, the central ring is bent and cut on a straight section, and not on an arc, as was the original; and it's not welded. All pegs are of the same shape (the originals had slightly different side shapes than the central one).

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).

Historical reference.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.
