Let's See Your US Shotgun Shell Pouches

Recommended Posts

where the m1938 shotgun shell pouches made between 1942-1945 followed by a break, and then production started back up in 1968?

i have seen a 1968 dated shell pouch, and alot of 1969 dated ones.

are there any produced between 1946-1967?

I was going through some old threads and discovered this one...hope you all don't mind me resurrecting it. I've been looking for a decent example for a few years and then I found this matching pair recently. I'd really like to have an earlier example but these will have to do for now.

Does any one know how much these are going for because a year or two ago I saw on this website that these are worth $800 but is that right because that seemed really steep?

I think the median going rate for these in average condition is about $200-$250 a piece. This is based on my observations of items sold at shows and on the major internet auction site.

Thanks I had a feeling $800 was way too much.

FYI, the estimate I gave are for WWII production pouches only. I have no idea what WWI, Vietnam or 1980's pouches are selling for.

The 80s pouches are a hard find too. I know one of the millitaria vendors has a Thurston one for sale like mine but I can't remember the link.

Thanks for that info...I've passed up many of these in my search for some WWII examples. I didn't realize they were rare also.

 

Nice score Big Moose!

I recently bought this shotgun pouch and figured I'd post it for opinions. Made of green nylon, it's got snap fasteners with ALICE clips, marked "US" on the front, and "M24" under the flap. Looks un-used. Also, the elastic appears to be either very stiff, or possibly cut too small for shotgun shells. It's obviously not a collectible, but I'm curious as to whether this was a private purchase item, or something made in a small batch like the LBTC variant above.

It is a commercial item, based on the shotgun pouch, for 7.62mm cartridges (the M24 is the Army designation of the Remington 700).

As these are highly collectible items, can anyone share any pictures of these being used in Vietnam?

I believe the question has been asked before, and no one ever came forward with any images. I am still looking for one too!

 

IIRC the FY1968 case (that Craig posted) was the only Vietnam-era case manufactured (unless you count the FY1974 dated ones). As stated here (post #19) the Nordac FY1969 case is a post-war reproduction, as are the Turner-Thurston nylon cases (which were discussed in a different thread I cannot find).

Just got these..2 of them actually, new in bag..I intend on using them though. ('86 contract date it looks like.) I had one of these pouches on my duty belt as an armed brow watch when I was in Weapons Dept on CVN-73.

Correction... '06!

 

I saw this one while searching, and this looks like an '06, not '86..so I looked up the contract number and BOOM:https://www.fpds.gov/ezsearch/search.do?s=FPDS&indexName=awardfull&templateName=1.4.4&q=SPM1C106V0333+9700+

Oh well..still mint in the bag! :) I didn't overpay, so all is good! They're actually being shipped to me right now. Hell, researching the NSN and contract number was part of the fun! '86 or '06, or even '16..doesn't matter to me! I will be using them for their intended purpose,as shotshell carrying pouches, so I know it is well made in the USA (just gotta trim some Irish Pennants LOL) Actually took a bit to find these. They however are made exactly like the ones I have used '93-'95ish, and look identical.

 

Still made to spec! ;)

Here's two modern examples. Brown one is a MOLLE, Eagle Industries made in 2010 for USMC. It holds 10 rounds, and is un-issued. The OD is dated 1988, holds 12 rounds, and seems to have seen use somewhere.

Seems '06 version is same as the '86, except color, nylon trim vs web trim and loops.

 

I got mine..and they're very nice...the only thing I noticed was the larger drain grommet at the bottom on the '06 version, otherwise identical besides nylon trim on '06

This may an interesting find then..
