As noted, each French FAMAS magazine pouch offered by Keepshooting.com is an authentic piece of French military surplus. As the French armed forces is the largest employer of the FAMAS, the French FAMAS magazine pouch was originally designed for and used by members of the Armée de Terre, otherwise known as the French army. The French army is the largest service branch of the French armed forces.
Though we cannot confirm the issuance of each French FAMAS magazine pouch, they do appear to have seen some light use. Nevertheless, they remain in excellent condition and are far from the end of their service lives. You should be pleased to hear that these pouches are 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 three magazines or a unique piece of French military surplus are sure to find the French FAMAS magazine pouch an excellent option.
The French FAMAS magazine pouch boasts an almost entirely nylon construction and features a traditional olive drab coloring. The nylon is held together with the reinforced military-grade stitching found throughout. The pouches themselves are tri-chambered pouches, meaning that each pouch features three distinct pouches, with each designed to accept a single magazine. Additional features includes a singular Velcro® closure flap with a lift tab, dual belt loops and a lanyard rig.
When it comes to the FAMAS, two magazines are generally used based upon the model of the rifle. The original F1 model was designed for use with 25-round FAMAS magazines. The later G2 was designed to accept 30-round STANAG magazines, just like an AR-15. The French FAMAS magazine pouch appears to be designed for the original 25-round magazines, but will also accept a number of other firearm magazines including M1 carbine magazines and 20-round M16 magazines, should you choose to use the pouch that way.
