Original Japanese WWII Unissued Late War Rubberized Canvas Arisaka Ammunition Pouch
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice unissued Japanese Late WWII Ammo pouch for Arisaka Rifles, made from rubberized canvas. As the war progressed and materials like leather became scarce, Japan turned to rubberized canvas to make items such as slings, bayonet frogs, belts, and ammo pouches. These were worn 2 to 3 on a belt, and all types are hard to find.
This pouch shows no signs of use, and we believe it to be unissued. It has all components, and there are even areas where there is rubber "squeeze out" where it was stitched. The different pieces of canvas used can even still be seen. However, as with almost all Japanese rubberized canvas items, the rubber has become nearly rock hard, so we have made no attempts top open the pouches, as it would most likely destroy the rubberized canvas "hinge" and closure strap. There is already a bit of delamination on closure strap near the retaining studs.
Quite rare, and ready to display with your Arisaka rifle!
