Original German WWII Naval Black Leather Mauser 98k Triple Pouch with Kriegsmarine Marking - dated 1942
Original Item: Only One Set Available. This is a very nice German WWII Naval-issue black pebble-grain leather triple Patronentaschen (ammunition pouch), designed to hold stripper clips for the Mauser k98K rifle. This was the standard German infantry rifle throughout WWII for all forces, even the Kriegsmarine / Navy. These pouches would be attached to the waist belt, and would be attached to combat suspenders using the rings on the back. Each pocket holds two stripper clips of 5 rounds, so each pouch holds 6 clips, or 30 rounds
This pouch is in very good used condition, and does not have any major stitching or leather issues. The leather does show some wear to the texture, but nothing major, and there are scuffs and overall wear. The internal separators are still present in 2 of the 3 pouches, and all of the mid war pattern steel rivets and snaps are sound. The pouch is fitted with a steel "D" ring on the back, and steel rivet studs on the bottom.
The back of this pouch is maker marked with H. CLEMEN / ELBERFELD, with a 1942 date at the bottom. These markings can be heard to see due to the pebble grain texture. It also has a clear EAGLE / M marking, indicating issue to the German Kriegsmarine (Navy). Rifles were still needed and kept on board, especially for landing parties.
This is a great chance to pick up a rare Navy marked k98K triple ammo pouch! Ready to display with your 98K rifle!
