It arrived today and because I got it for peanuts (35$) on british ebay, doubts about genuinity are mandatory. We all know shotgun pouches are widely reproduced so it's not difficult to be screwed with one of these. To be honest I think it would be legit but my experience in US web gear dated only since 2004 so you guy should be so kind to give me your impressions. It's mint unissued (former USSR lend lease?) and snaps are klikit pulls.

I agree. The LTD snaps are the easiest way to spot the reproductions. The snaps on your pouch look genuine. Looks like you got a good deal.

It wasn't difficult. I had so many good deal on UK ebay and I wonder why european collectors dont watch too much at this source.
