    Default Identity of German mag box

    Any help would be appreciated in identifying this WW2 German mag box.I thought it was an unknown variant of box for the ZB26/MG26t, but it appears I was wrong (again!) It has got me stumped as I can't think of any magazine that will fit and also the strange layout of the box, with the middle section by the catch,is this space wasted? Please take a look at the attached pictures, thanks, Peter.

    Hi Ade,
    The ZB mag I put in the box, in the picture, was a VERY tight fit and is obvously to short.
