Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

2 mystery Mauser ammo pouches, vintage 8mm ammo

#1 Post by DWM » Mon Jun 05, 2017 3:47 pm

I got these pouches and ammo along with my Persian Model 30 (viewtopic.php?f=18&t=120) Does anyone know where these pouches came from? Any ideas on value?

Pouch 1, you can make out the Spanish "Talleres" -workshops.

Pouch 2, much thinner in profile, German? I can't get a very good picture of the maker's mark.

The first one is Columbian IIRC. The second one, could it be Turkish in origin?

All of the Turkish pouches I've seen have been brown. It looks German, but the maker's mark seems wrong.

IIRC, the Interarms ammo was reloaded by the Finns. Primers may or may not work.
