Possible Ammo Belt?
« on: Sep 29, 2010, 08:52 AM »
I was doing some digging and found this old ammo belt pictured below.  It's certainly weathered and I wanted to get some opinions if this would be a suitable ammo belt for trooping?



As always, thanks much!

Yep. Works great.

I personally cut off the shoulder straps, and added a clip to the waist straps, but I use nearly the same thing.

Haha, I have the same belt I got for like $2 at a local pawn & hunting shop. But I plan to heavily modify because on my frame, it takes up my entire stomach area. I plan on cutting out and only using four of the pouches, two on the left, two on the right, on a new belt.

Excellent, thank you all for the guidance!  I was toying with the idea to make thin plastic inserts to flesh out the pockets while still allowing them to store various items of mercenary delight....   ;)

it is either vietnamese or russian, ( can't really tell that well, )   used. to carry stripper clips for the sks rifle. it is a canvas material and very durable. but before you cut, read up on it. some of these are going for $$$$$ i sold one similar to yours for $90.00, museums and such are buying them for vietnam war displays. just like the Swedish Mauser M1910 Leather Ammo Belt. they used to sell for 10.00 and now they are going for 60 to 85.00 for the leather...watch band makers are grabbing them up left and right to make watch bands and the watch bands are not cheap at all. a band will cost you about 250.00.. hope this helps everyone out... if you are intersted in getting a mauser belt email me and i will refer you to a guy that sells them for 36.00

Thanks for the info Ajax I will keep that in mind before I part with the ones I have. I have picked them up at gun shows over the years and let my kids use them to play army with.
