    Mystery Pouch?

    I have this mystery pouch that came from a UKicon dealer. It looks, to me, that it may be Yugoslav but there are no divisions for holding mags and no sign of them ever being present and so I don't believe that it's a normal AK mag pouch. Any ideas as to it's purpose, please?

    Thanks for any information and replies.

    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.

    Yep, Yugoslavian.

    Sorry I'd forgotten about this one and I did eventually find an answer. Apparently it's for the Yugoicon M72 RPK, for carrying ammunition in boxes, not mags.

    It supposedly holds 540 rnds in 36 boxes of 15 rnds. I haven't actually checked that these numbers are correct.
