Original Japanese WWII Late War Rubberized Canvas Arisaka Ammunition Pouch and Waist Belt
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice 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 minor signs of use, and we believe it to be lightly used if at all. 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, but the pouch still opens and closes with ease There is already a bit of delamination on closure strap near the retaining studs.
Also included is a rubberized canvas waist belt with metal buckle that the pouch would attach to. The rubberized canvas of the belt is also rock hard and it cannot be extended without possible damage. Both make an impressive Imperial Japaneses Army IJA infantry display.
Quite rare, and ready to display with your Arisaka rifle!
