Yeah Ive seen quite a few of those recently. Some will have mix matched round flap and pointed flap pouches. Ive also seen them retain the large WW1 buckles or modified to a WW2 pattern. A lot of the ones I see modified were done by Avery Co. Annnnnd a first for me to see is a Marine with a cut down 10 pocket belt section added to his BAR belt!

Ok here is an odd one... I have an Instagram page called Cosmoline & Canvas. Another collector called The History Hoarder, that posts regularly uploaded photos of this pouch. These are the only 3 photos of it before someone bought it from him. There is a screenshot of the description he had along with the pouch. Have you guys seen these before? Very neat lil pouch.

The snap strap would make sense then . Open pouch , pull back mag out , hand it off , then unsnap strap when ready to hand off the 2nd mag .
