Excellent addition to the thread.

 

I had some more things to post here and never updated the thread. The artist's impression of the first .30-M1903 bandoleer should have a different font, but I did not get a chance to update that image.

What is the value of these have chance at Remington UMC 1918 dated and in very nice condition?

 

That is a tough one, I do not have an answer for you. I guess it could make a difference if it was empty or still sealed?

Nope it is empty only the bandoleer and marked rifle velocity at 53 ft. 1966 ft.

 

I used to see them empty with asking prices around $20-35 depending on condition, less if in rougher condition. Maybe try searching ebay ended auctions to get a more updated price range.

I acquired 6 of these bandoleers with ammo dated 1938-1940, not sure on the exact headstand date unless I look again. All of the ammo is on brass stripper clips. A couple questions:

1. We're the stripper clips of ammo situated in the pockets with the bullet points in the same direction?

2. Were the bandoleers issued with cardboard inserts and used at all times,  or was the cardboard use an optional feature?

Hi,

 

 

As far as I know all military contract and arsenal produced .30-06 that came packed in the 1909 banodleers came with the inserts. And to answer your first question, the design of the tapered inserts necessitated that both stripper clips be inserted in the same direction (from the top, point down).
