We took these out of a Russian military arsenal in October 2010. These pouches are original Soviet Red Army production manufactured in the 1950's. They are made with a mix of synthetic and real leather. The pouch holds 30rds of 7.62X54 ammunition on stripper clips (not included) and can be worn on your belt. These were stored in a climate controlled, sealed area and the pouches are in excellent condition, most look as if they were never issued. Some will differ in leather tone and possibly year of manufacture.
