The German G3 scope case measures approximately 9.5 inches by 4.5 inches by 2.5 inches and features a hard-shell plastic insert that is surrounded by a heavy-duty nylon covering. The nylon covering sports the unmistakable German Flecktarn camouflage pattern, a multicolor disruptive camouflage pattern that generally utilizes three or more colors. The covering has both a flap closure that is secured via a simple plastic buckle as well as a unique plastic attachment loop on the rear. Additionally, both the hard-shell liner and the nylon covering include a small grommet to allow the escape of moisture that may collect inside.
Another interesting aspect regarding the German G3 scope case is the fact that the NATO Stock Number (NSN) is printed on the underside of the closure 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 G3 scope case is 8465-12-327-9248, which identifies it as a waffen zubeh tasche, which roughly translates to a "weapon accessory case." The "8465" identifies it as a piece of individual equipment while the "12" signifies that the piece is from Germany. The remaining digits are an item number.

Brand new.. Ideal protection for my Metrolight red dot sight. Room for sight, spare batteries and small tool, etc.
When my wife threw me out, I lived in my car for awhile, and on a buddy's couch, before I got back on my feet. I had bought one of these West German scope cases from Keep Shooting, and had used it as an all purpose case while hunting. The one I received was completely mint, and dated 1994. So I just adapted it to use as a shaving bag--it was roomy enough for razors, toothbrush--everything you would need. All around great ditty bag!
This is an excellent, brand new, never issued German Bundeswehr scope case.
* Made from tightly woven nylon in the flecktarn pattern.
* Inside of case has an oval shaped plastic tube that protects the pouches contents. The plastic tube can be removed, as well.
* The pouch I received was dated 1994, and had never been issued. The colors on the camouflage pattern were bright.
* Note that since this is Bundeswehr issue, it utilizes the proprietary German belt-keeper system, and needs an adapter to interface with Molle or ALICE equipment.
