    Thrift store find. Carbine mag pouches & mags

    I picked these up yesterday. Don't have a carbine, but the price was too good to pass up.









    I was wondering if the mags are commercial mfg, or GI.

    I'm thinking I need a carbine now since I have the pouches, mags, and reloading dies (I use them for reloading 7.62 x 38R Nagant revolver cartridges)

    Makes sense to me. A co-worker gave me a few Colt 20 rd. AR15 mags. I did not have an AR15. The logical remedy was to shop for/ buy an AR15.

    I remedied the situation...in the form of a beautiful Colt SP 1. You need to buy an M1icon carbine.

    #2 & #3 look like "A I" so would be Inland Div of GM. #4 is "OI B" so would be IBM. #1 is hard to read--if it's "SY-B" it also is IBM. All are GI issue.

    The khaki pouch was meant to go on the M1912 pistol belt (the snap lined up with the snap on the belt for the M1911 mag pouch). Enterprising GI's put them on the carbine stock.
    JQMD stands for Jeffersonville Quarter Master Depot (Missouri).

    That's a great find!! They're still out there. It's like fishing: you get skunked 9 times, but the 10th is great!

    Thanks for the information. Yes, mag #1 is stamped SY-B. The pouch on the left was made by Tweedie Footwear Corporation, and is dated 12-20-56.

    That's a nice score. I never seem to be that lucky and I am always wandering through antique stores
