View Full Version : M14 2 mag pouches? interest?
I have what I believe to be 2 mag army pouches for the M14. The pouches hold 2 FAL mags perfect, are made of heavy canvas type material and have a loop on either side for grenades (guessing). They are marked US, any worth of these to anyone? Are they what I think they are? Thanks for any info

If it's got the US ALICE clip belt attachments and a pull-tab to secure the top flap, then it sure sounds like the standard US-issue M14 pouch.
I still see these at gun shows and flea markets for ~$5 ea. But some people are thinking that they are collectible on eBay at over $10ea.
Good, durable pouches.
Thats them. Thanks for the info

There's actually 2 different canvas double M14 mag pouches that are like that. The earlier ones are a much better fit, they were made just for 2 M-14 mags. The later ones are called "universal" pouches, most will say "universal" in the markings inside the cover. These were made to fit 2-M14 mags or 4-30rd Carbine mags and because of that fact, are a little looser fit.
In excellent condition, early M14 pouches are worth $15+ea and are hard to find. The same condition "universal" pouch can be found for $5-6ea and are very common. TON's of universals were made, even today some surplus stores still have crates of these things !!

There are several diffrent styles like Yovinny mentioned. The really early ones had a materal to stiffen the front and had metal gromets in the pull tab tounge (sp?). I haven't found too much diffrence in fit, but I believe yovinny, there are wide variation in these sorts of things.

I think some had a patch of canvas sewn on each side so you could put the spoon of a grenade in there...

I have 2 sizes, the one smaller ones are marked "case, small arms universal" actually fits M-14 mags better. The other cases are bigger and marked "case, small arms" I always thought that the larger cases were for BAR mags, but they do fit 4 30rnd Carbine mags pretty well.
