The M1 Carbine 1943 Mag Pouch is commonly known as the M1 Carbine Buttstock Magazine Pouch. This magazine pouch was originally designed to fit onto a pistol belt and hold two 15-round M1 Carbine magazines. Once it was issued to soldiers in the war, they quickly realized that it could fit over the buttstock of their M1 Carbine allowing for easier access to loaded magazines.
The M1 Carbine 1943 Magazine Pouch is the most popular accessory for the M1 Carbine after extra magazines. No other accessory is as synonymous to the M1 Carbine than this magazine pouch, as most pictures from the war show the M1 Carbine fitted with this magazine pouch on the buttstock. It was important to soldiers that this magazine pouch was close at hand to assure quick and easy magazine changes.
This reproduction M1 Carbine magazine pouch is based on the original 1943 style magazine pouch as made by Kadin. We have worked to produce a historically accurate version of this important magazine pouch. What we have also done is ensured that these magazine pouches were made to be able to actually hold two 15-round magazines, even when the pouch has been installed onto the M1 carbine stock. Virtually all of the other reproduction magazine pouches will not allow the magazines to be inserted fully when the pouch is installed. Other companies want to produce this magazine pouch as cheap as possible, we want to produce it to match the original in both looks and function.
This product when installed on the M1 carbine upgrades the authenticity of the weapon. It is also highly functional and tightly holds two 15-rd magazines negating any possibility of rattling and dislodgement during when maneuvering.
I bought two pouches for my pistol belt, good quality, 15 round mags fit well, looks great.
Nicely made pouch
These are made of a nice thick soft canvas material that will look good on any rifle or belt. Nice repro
The ammo pouch is well made! Slides on the M1 Carbine like a glove. My GI 15 rounds mags fit perfect.
Perfect Choice for the M1 Carbine
I have purchased three (3) magazine pouches, slings and oilers from KeepShooting. I've never been disappointed. This is a quality product that should last a long time. If you're in the market for one of these, don't hesitate to make the purchase. You'll be very pleased.
Very satisfied. Ready for Band of Brothers.
Was easy to install. 15 rounds mags fit perfect. Looks cool. What's the button on the back for?
Classic Look !
The ammo pouch is well made! Slides on the M1 Carbine like a glove. Gives your carbine that classic WWII look. I'm happy.
Great quality pouch. Well made. Fits on an M1 carbine like a glove. Also holds 10rd mags quite nicely when attached to the stock.
great product, happy with purchase
was a good mag pouch for mi m1 carbine, good quality happy with my purchase
Got one of these for my M1 A1 Para. Had an original on it that was starting to get soiled. Looked over the web this on was best price found. Material is a bit on the "light weight" side. But well put together and about half of other repro's I found. Good deal
it changed the look of my gun love it
Great USGI looking pouch! Quality of the pouch was so nice I ordered another one for backup!
The pouch and 15 rd mags make a great addition to the rifle. Can't beat the price.
I got the mag pouch and it looked a lot smaller than i was expecting, but feat not, it will fit your M1 clips and fit snug on the stock
Good looking pouch. Fits my carbine well.

I purchased one of these for my 10/22 dressed up as an M-1 carbine and it looks fantastic. I was able to squeeze one Ruger 10rd mag in there.
M1 Carbine Pouch
Very nice pouch. I would not hesitate to buy one again.
As close to original as possible.
I have an original and, when I placed it side by side with this repro by Keep Shooting, could see no immediate difference other than the repro is new. Its as if you stepped back in time and grabbed one when it was new. Amazing.
would buy again
If your looking for a mag pouch,this is it!
GREAT buy for the money and i would buy again without hesitation!
Top Notch Repo for sure,I was very Happy with this item
If you ever wanted to buy one now is the time!!!
Just received my pouch. It is just what I needed. Works good and looks great on my carbine.
Couldn't be happier.
Review byJohn David
I ordered the mag pouch and sling, was worried that the colors wouldn't match. But they did and I couldn't be happier with them. I had ordered a muzzle cover from another sight and it matched too.
Just got mine installed
This is the correct pouch if you want to install a mag pouch onto the stock of your M1 Carbine.
This is a close copy of the original, thanks for not making it 100% to fool people into thinking they were buying a USGI.
