This was issued to all personnel who utilized the weapon throughout the war. Although supplemented by semi- and fully automatic rifles during World War II, it remained the primary German service rifle until the end of the war. Millions were captured by the Soviets at the conclusion of World War II and were widely distributed as military aid. The Karabiner 98k therefore continues to appear in conflicts across the world as they are taken out of storage during times of strife.
Made of leather with aluminum & steel fittings, this K98 Ammo Pouch is in VERY NICE used condition! There are some slight marks and wear, but nothing that detracts. All fittings and studs are in place, and none of the leather has any major cracks or damaged! Based on the belt loop design, these would date mid-war.
The internal dividers are also still present (usually these are missing). Features a faint Kriegsmarine Adler over "M" on the reverse! Would be a PERFECT addition to any collection or simply for display! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
