Do any of you Colt type 9mm AR15 carbine owners happen to have an MP40 magazine pouch handy to see if the Colt 9mm magazine fits?

I'm old school, I hate nylon web gear. EvilBay has retro canvas MP40 pouches for sale that look pretty nice and are affordable.

Thanks!

I have factory Colt 32 rnd Mag's and the MP-5 3 cell pouchs and even though the pouch's are NOS and I tried to even put them inside upside down, THEY DIDN't fit at all as the leather strap with the slot WOULDN'T GO DOWN within a inch of the slot. Haven't had any 3 cell MP 40 mags around since 1986 when I sold my two MP-40's.

The Izzys made 25 and 32 rd mag pouches. You should be able to buy them
on the cheap.

I use the Izzy 25/32 rd canvas pouches. They work great.

How about a chest rig for them? I evidently failed to take a pic of them but I made a stick mag chest rig for a guy on ARFCOM a while back in nylon. It would be no problem to do one in canvas...

Now that's a great idea! A much better way to carry the mags.
