The German Uzi magazine pouch is, as noted, a three-chambered pouch designed for the storage of 32-round Uzi magazines. Each is an authentic German military surplus item. These magazine pouches were originally designed for and used by members of the German heer, or army, which is one of the five service branches that makes up the Bundeswehr, or unified armed forces of Germany. Best of all, each magazine pouch is an unissued pouch, meaning they are unused and in excellent condition ready to begin service however you see fit. Because they have endured years of storage, however, they may require a quick cleaning with soap and water to return them to their peak physical condition. Whether you own an Uzi or not, the German Uzi magazine pouch is an excellent addition to any collection.
The German Uzi magazine pouch, which measures approximately 8 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches, benefits from a durable construction that includes a particle-board backing encased by a rubberized vinyl material that serves as the water-resistant body of the pouch. The olive drab vinyl is sewn to the particle board via olive drab military-grade stitching. Closure is achieved by way of a top flap that features a slotted stud fastener and completely encloses the magazines within the pouch. The reverse of the pouch features a thick one-inch canvas belt loop that makes attaching the pouch for transport very simple. Additionally, each belt loop features a metallic loop that offers a secondary option for transport.
An interesting aspect regarding the German Uzi magazine pouch is the fact that the NATO Stock Number (NSN) is printed on the interior of the top flap. An NSN is a 13-digit numerical code that identifies all standardized materials of supply that are recognized by NATO countries. The NSN for the German Uzi magazine pouch is 8465-12-127-5472, which identifies it as a patronenmag tasche, or what translates loosely to "cartridge magazine pouch" The "8465" identifies it as a piece of individual equipment in a category that includes an array of small pouches and bags while the "12" signifies that the piece is from Germany. The remaining digits signify its item number.
Perhaps best of all, though, is the fact that the German Uzi magazine pouch is capable of housing magazines other than 32-round Uzi magazine, such as the STEN magazine and others of comparable size. If that is not a selling point, then I do not know what is. What I do know, however, is that there is no reason to pass up a German Uzi magazine pouch at just $2.95.
