    Wow, 231 views and only one reply? I guess most of you are like me and have never seen one in the flesh. With only 3500 produced, I wonder how many survived?

    Thanks for responding and confirming that the pouch is genuine Jim. Dang things are hard to find in any condition. The machinegunboards example is a beauty!
  4. Please assess whether this WWI shell pouch is genuine

    I appreciate the replies. I have cleaned the mortise slot again and the bayo still sticks. The inside "floor" of the mortise slot just does not look right to me but I don't have another one of...

    Jim, Cross piece or quillion looks pretty straight to me. The hang up seems to be in the mortise slot.

    No 6-shot clips are available for the M1917 that I've ever heard of. And having never shot a vintage match, I was wrong about needing clips though most of it. It pays to actually read about...
