Original U.S. WWII M1A1 Carbine 1943-dated Canvas Paratrooper Jump Case Scabbard by Atlas Awning

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice example of a WWII Issue Paratrooper Jump Case for the Carbine, Cal .30, M1A1, which was a paratrooper version with a folding stock. Referred to variously as the Scabbard, M1A1, Jump Case, or Paratrooper holster, it was designed to carry and protect the M1 M1A1 folding stock carbine during a parachute jump. The bags were padded with felt on the leg side, so the bag had to be carried U.S. side out.

The canvas belt holster was strapped to the leg at the bottom, and was slipped over the belt or parachute harness by using the large belt loop. The top flap is closed by two "lift-the-dot" snaps. Since attaching it to the belt and leg would prevent the let from bending, one must assume that the holster was mostly attached to the webbing.

This example is maker marked under the top flap: ATLAS AWNING / 1943. These were made of OD Green #3 Canvas, which has faded a bit over the years. The case is overall solid, with both snaps working, and the leg strap still intact, though there is a bit of fraying. Definitely very good condition for its age.

Just like the case used by the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions during Normandy and Market Garden. Ready to display along with your M1A1 Paratrooper Carbine!
