    Default PPD Drum mag ammo pouch

    Amongst the bewildering range of drum magazine pouches for the PPSh-41 which seem to abound on the Net (sure they can't all be real!) I have seen one which says it was for the PPD - it resembles a PPSh pouch but has a leather trim to the edge of the flap. Might this have been used with the PPSh? I like the look of it but don't want to get a pouch which would never have been used with the PPSh - although I reckon RKKA would have used whatever they could....?
    thanks

    I don't believe that there a lot of fakes in the market, some postwar - yes, but all I see is originals. About 10 y.ago there one guy from St Petersburg got them in bunch- approx 50000 pcs, I saw his storage room in the wet basement, I don't know how many of them was rotten there ( I have somevhere the pictures of that stock). I bought from him approx 500 pieces, and still owe about 30 different examples. There a leather pouches which is for PPD. But some of the normally canvas pouches with D rings was dated 1940 y. I think they are the same as PPSH. Anyway the picture of your pouch will be nice to see.
    I think market is full of unsold pouches from that guy. Before that, the PPSH pouch was a extremelly rare piece ( the same as a German G-43 pouches was sold about 5 years ago for approx 2000 eur/ piece, now aftrer they was discovered in Ukrainian stocks- price approx 80 eur each)

    Thanks for your help - 50000 is a lot of pouches! I assume that the GPW period pouches are likely to be made of coarser cloth than postwar and perhaps look generally more rough?

    Dimas,

    Is the guy´s name you bought the pouches from Alexei Gorbunov? I remember this guy telling me ten years ago that he took all his items from a huge warehouse in St. Petersburg.

    Regarding the pouches, I have just bought a true wartime PPSH pouch, and I have another one that is a confirmed post war specimen (bought as wartime from this man Gorbunov). As soon as my camera is repaired, I will post photos of both to show the differences between them.


    Regards,

    No, All PPSH pouches are fairly basic in construction and the materials vary a lot as Dimas suggests. Most mid-late war pouches and postwar pouches tend to be made out of a course and fairly heavy canvas material. Some of the better made pouches are actually the early war types with the D-ring on the reverse. Often these pouches are made from a nice, fine weave canvas.

    Hi. I have one pouch that does have a lining on the flap and backside panel and has a wooden cylinder shape button. No stamps visible. I thought it was war timer but now I doubt it. Did the war time ones had a lining?
