Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Yugoslav ammo pouches for M48 rifle

Yugoslav ammo pouches for M48 rifle
as I mentioned many times, it is important for me to collect as much as possible different accessories to main item- the rifle. In that case yugoslav rifle M48.
Standard issue were two part pouch. The oldest one was two part but there were place just for 20 rounds in four clips. They looks like the Polish pre war issue.
Combat package for M48 were 60 rounds. Every soldier was equiped with two ammo pouches. You can fill the pouch with three clips but there is space for 4 clips easily or one standard 7,9 mm Yugo carton ammo package.
The canvas pouch was issued during fiftys instead of leather ones because of lack of leather.
One part ammo pouch was intended for one hand grenade.

A follow up Ammo bandolier question..

I have seen photos of Yugo/Serbian bandoliers. There are all kinds of different ones. But they are very minimal. Almost skeleton bandoliers.. Do you ever see any like this where you are..

Good pics and info. I try to get the accesories to my guns as well. But i often put the money towards another gun or ammo.
As a kid i would have bought a ton of this leather gear.

All accessories for M48 are very cheap and quite avaible.

Yeah, and i am now in a better position to indulge in accesories. :)
Currently i am in search of a nice yugo m48 bayonet scabbard. Just the scabbard.
I found some unissued ones on ebay over in cyprus.
Just a little more than i want to spend.
I know, i am a cheap sob. :)
