Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of a Japanese Early WWII Ammo pouch for Arisaka Rifles made of top grain leather. These were used up until the introduction of rubberized accouterments circa 1943. The rubberized items were especially more feasible for use in tropical jungle environments, where the heat and humidity would result in the previously issued leather items having a very high attrition rate. These were worn 2 to 3 on a belt, and all types are hard to find.

This pouch shows signs of honest period use, and storage wear that has accumulated from decades of storage and handling. It has all components, including the original leather closure tab. The inside retains its original section divider. All stitching is intact and nice and tight, with the exception of one “ear” of the closure flap on the right side, which shows some loose stitching. The top flap hinge shows some signs of being glued at one time, but does not detract from the displayability of the item.

Japanese WWII Field Equipment is getting quite rare to find on the market currently. This would make a great addition to display with your Arisaka rifle!
