    Could these be instead early war type Mosin Nagant ammo pouches? The Polish army pre-1939 ammo pouch consisted of three pouches in one, or did they also use this type of pouch? The seller says they are pre-1939 Polish infantry ammo pouches.. Please help me out with this one.

    Hey pat15567,

    Well ... i can ask You the same - why do You think they could be pre or wartime ?
    No chance ... typical post war production, there are thousands of them on the market in eastern Europe (former Soviet occupation part of it). They are very common and popular as a basic material to creating a replica of polish pre-war pouches (instead of buying new, proper ones). Lots of living history groups are using them. I also own such a pair Can sell or swap them, they are good reshaped into something what looks like pre-war ones.

    These are often found in the heavy green canvass type material similar to the pre-39 BAR mag pouches.

    The only two pouch or double ammo pouches that I have seen in photos are from WWI era Austrian style issued for the Mannlicher Steyr rifle.

    My dwa cents....
