The LC2 Pistol Belt is one of the most prolific combat belts ever designed. Since it was first introduced in the 1970s it has been refined to what you now see and is still used by certain units in the US military today.
Officially designated as the Belt, Individual Equipment by the US Military the LC2 belt is generally referred to as a pistol belt or combat belt. While it is unclear as to when the LC2 started to be referred to as a pistol belt it is likely just a continuation from the days of the M36 Pistol Belt. In the military your belt is really used for keeping your pistol accessible rather than holding up your pants like belts do in the civilian world.

In all seriousness the belt I received was brand new and looks great on my LCE reproduction. There isn't a piece of Surplus from Keepshooting that doesn't see heavy use on my land.
