C005478 U.S. THOMPSON SUB-MACHINE GUN AMMO POUCH.

BACKGROUND: Webbing was a new form of material made from pre shrunk, pre dyed, water proofed, cotton. Designed by a United States Army officer, Captain Mills, it was much tougher than the leather used for all previous military equipment and did not suffer from the unfortunate problem of shrinkage in wet conditions. The .45 Thompson sub machine gun was first manufactured in 1928, the M1 and M1A1 versions appeared in 1942, and ceased production in 1944.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: A five-pocket, olive drab, webbed canvas ammunition belt for the .45 Thompson sub machine gun. Each pocket, which would have held a thirty-round magazine, has a fold-over flap with a blackened brass lift-the-dot snap closure to it. A wide panel is to the reverse and features a smaller loop behind it for the belt. Unmarked.

GRADE ****                                                         PRICE $49.00
