A good friend of mine asked me to build him some Garand en bloc pouches. Here's the first one I'll be sending out.  Pouch is 5 inches wide by 4 inches tall and 1.5 inches deep.

A-tacs FG 500d and multicam webbing.

Those look really good.  I've always been a fan of a variant of the WW2 rigger pouches that turned the clips sideways.  LOTS of additional ammo could be carried that way.

I've got a lot of clips for my M1 sitting lonely next to their bandoliered brothers, so you've got me thinking.....

Would you consider making some with the "Natick snap"?

Those look good. They look like they could do double duty as a speed loader pouch for range use with the addition of a belt loop attachment . I'm liking that idea.

Considered it but you can just as easy run MALICE clips on a belt. But, it wouldn't be anything to sew on belt slots instead either, especially if I made one 4 pouches long.

Sure would. However, I've never used snap fasteners before.  Can't be too difficult, right?

Paulie,

If you are interested, I can shoot some decent pics of a Very Good to Exellent 1942 GI Cart. Belt if you are looking for actual or "retro" details. 

If not, no harm, no foul .

BTW, great job on the new pouches.

Do you have any pictures of such pouches? I can't find anything in my searches online...
