With flaps featuring button closure, these pouches are tough and sure to last. Additionally, the underside of each flap is stamped with “CLERMONT-Fd” to signify the manufacturer’s location – Clermont-Ferrand. It’s details such as these that make owning military surplus items extra cool.

The MAS-49 and MAS-49/56

Originally adopted by the French army in 1949, the MAS-49 is a semi-automatic firearm developed to replace the outdated bolt-action rifles that were in service at the time. It was designed and manufactured by Manufacture d'armes de Saint-Étienne (MAS), a state-owned arms manufacturer. Utilizing a direct impingement gas system, the MAS-49 fires the 7.5x54 mm French cartridge.

In 1957, a variant of the MAS-49 was developed that was mass-produced and saw service through 1990. It was the MAS-49/56. The MAS-49/56 was lighter and featured both a shortened barrel as well as bayonet. Additionally, the built-in grenade launcher was replaced by a combination rifle grenade launcher/compensator.

Mine looked nice but....
The back and flaps were in fine shape. One of the belt loops appeared rotten and tore off and the same with one of pocket bottoms. Tore like wet cardboard.....

A Real Beauty
...the smaller pouches arrived sealed in plastic, "new surplus". The leather is dry, but I saw no dry rot. They need oiling, and I also used neats foot oil. It took several applications of oil, and I let them rest in between coats. So far, I've applied oil about 5 times, but might add a few more coats, but they are "beautiful" They smell like a saddle, and the leather is becoming very limber. I wanted the pouches to hold my 380 shells on my belt, and they're perfect. A= to the French.

Quality, utility pouch
I bought a pair of these, complete with a tad of mil-surp smell. The two I received were quite stiff out of the packaging. I folded the flaps down and left them closed for 3 weeks and they will stay about half-way open un-fastened now. I bit more working of the leather ought to fix that. Great for what they are.
