We've received a shipment of Austrian STG-58 magazine pouches and they are some of the nicest we've ever had. The STG-58 was the Austrian version of the famous FN FAL rifle, so these mag pouches are designed to hold any 20-round FAL magazine.
As noted, each Austrian FAL magazine pouch offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic piece of Austrian military surplus. As the Österreichisches Bundesheer, or Austrian armed forces, was a large employer of the FN FAL battle rifle, the Austrian FAL magazine pouch was originally designed for and would have been issued to members of the landstreitkräfte, otherwise known as the land forces, one of the two main service branches of the Austrian armed forces.
Previous issuance of each Austrian FAL magazine pouch offered by Keepshooting.com was likely, though each remains in good condition and requires nothing more than a quick cleaning. Likewise, each pouch is free from the typical rips, tears, stains and scents that are characteristic of previously issued military surplus equipment. Those looking for a magazine pouch suitable for carrying up to two 20-round FAL magazines or a unique piece of Austrian military surplus are sure to find the Austrian FAL magazine pouch an excellent option.
The Austrian FAL magazine pouch features a full-grain, pebble-textured leather construction, save the few metal rivets and fasteners. Rounding out the tough construction is a series of military-grade stitching that holds the pouch together at the seams. All leather surfaces feature a black exterior alongside a traditional tanned interior. As for the pouch itself, these dual-celled pouches are designed to hold up to two 20-round FAL magazines. Each magazine fits snugly into its own cell, which measures approximately 6 3/4 inches by 3 1/2 inches and features its own closure flap with a slot-and-stud fastener. Approximate size for the entire pouch is 7 3/4 inches by 7 1/4 inches. Additional features include a dual belt loops and a D-ring on the reverse.
