Swiss Ammo Pouch

Post by vandle »

Stumbled across this leather Swiss Ammo pouch

Manufactured in 1887 for use with their Vetterlis, they were later modified to hold the GP90 6 round clips for the 1889 Straight Pull

The pouch was modfied by adding wooden blocks to support the GP90 6 Round Clips.
Loose rounds were carried in the loops on the front of the pouch.
