The German Uzi magazine pouch is a three-chambered pouch designed for the storage of 32-round Uzi magazines. Each is an authentic German military surplus item.
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.

Bought two... one was perfect (dated 1988) the other not so good (dated 1977). The perfect one had good quality material, backer-board, and other bits. The not so good one had delaminiation on the tab and pouch openings making it hard to use, and was the dirtier, smellier of the two... A throw-away. Both were kind of musty, but clean and really no problem, and both fit the intended mag just as they should. So, one pouch for $5.90 ($2.95 x 2 considering the one that I tossed) is still a decent deal for me. Might try another when I order something in the future.
Mine had no smell at all, I expected a raincoat-like funk. Snugly holds 3 32 round usi mags, well constructed, and in beautiful condition.
These work great with 25 round Tec-9 mags. Also the 2o rounds if you put a 2 inch filler in the bottom. Seems very well made and looks new.
Good value magazines fit tight not that easy to pull them out. Two of them look great one is a little rough.
Just got 2 more in great shape.
Ordered 2 pouches 1 was new, the other like new. Uzi mags fit fine, but Sten mags are to tight.
Mine we like new condition, very cool addition.
Ordered six of these mag pouches. Four of the pouches appeared to be in like new shape. The other two were a little dirty and had some wear and tear on them but nothing major. They cleaned up nice with just a damp paper towel. One of the pluses of the rubberized vinyl material that the pouches are made from. Out of curiosity I tried a 30-rnd STEN mag and a 32-rnd Glock 9mm mag in the pouch to see if they would fit. They fit in the sleeves okay but they were too long to allow the flap to be closed.
Ordered 3, All in good shape, material is stiff green rubberized canvas (same as in the photos) that has a familiar Army surplus musty smell that reminds me of an old Army surplus tent that I had as a kid, I love that smell. You can tell UZI mags had been previously in pouches which adds to the nostalgia for me. 2 pouches dated from "1980", 1 pouch date was "1986". Fit is great with Uzi mags and room for other similar types of mags.
Just got one. Not sure what it is made out of-not canvas not leather. Seems strong enough and fits the mags very well. Will order more.
