    Not all pouches or bags assorted are for carrying mags. It might be a purse for carrying rations though. Is the lining plastic or leather?
    It might not be military at all too.

    I'm seeing that U.S. Army OR's didn't have a forage cap after 1942. The hat is Army. Might be an officer's hat somebody stuck an OR's badge on.
    I think the cap badge may be Viet Nam era.

    A bit too long can be fixed with a file or a fine grinding wheel. The difference is 62.5 thou(as in .0625"). A lot will depend on what tools you own.

    If you can, make a solid gas plug and install it the same way a regular gas piston is installed. Assuming your government's rules allow that. I believe you can weld the thing in if necessary.

    .38 Super uses a .355" bullet. The .351 is not. It's a .352".

    The 1.545" case length suggests a revolver cartridge. H&A made their falling block from 1885 to 1908 and there was a .45-70 barrel made. They apparently made some falling block rim fire rifles too....
