    Default What is this Boyt 44 leather carrier for?

    47" long and 6.5" in diameter, reinforced steel bands around the mid section

    Looks similar the the German MG34/42 spare barrel carriers but leather instead of metal.

    I couldn't find anything like it, and neither could the seller.

    Thanks!

    Could be, but haven't found any like it even for maps.

    Appreciate the reply!

    I agree with Steve, it's a map case or for blueprints/technical drawings!...

    Maybe a storage case for a tripod?

    Thanks for the replies. I see a similar civilian version here on Etsy, but no military versions yet. https://www.etsy.com/listing/2895860...ine?ref=market

    Could it be a carrying case for a scope or other optics??

    Looks like one, but this case is really big, 4' tall.
