Yugoslavian M53 Ammunition Belt

When it comes to firearms and feeding systems, magazines are the most prominently discussed devices. Unfortunately, they are not the coolest devices. That title belongs to the ammunition belt, which is a device that is designed to hold and feed cartridges into machine guns like the MG42, the M53 and the MG3, among others.

Ammunition belts carry several advantages over magazines and other feeding devices. What advantages you ask? Ammunition belts not only minimize the proportional weight of the ammunition to the feeding device, they also provide for higher rates of continuous fire and, best of all, more available ammunition. If any of that caught your attention, then perhaps it is time for you to purchase a machine gun. So you go ahead and do that. Then, come back here and pick up a few Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belts to go with it – assuming your machine gun of choice was one of the three aforementioned models.

Each of our Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belts are authentic Yugoslavian surplus items, perfect for collectors and actual use. With the Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belt, you have the potential for 50 rounds of 7.92x57mm Mauser or 7.62x51mm NATO at your disposal.

The Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belt is now available for only $7.95.

Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary immediately. Though an ammunition belt holds no bearing on the functionality of a firearm, it is, as noted, the only acceptable feeding device for the Yugoslavian M53, the original MG42 and the modified MG3.  

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of replacement parts and accessories for the iconic MG42 and its variants, which include the M53 and the MG3. Several parts and accessories are now readily available on our website at affordable prices, including the Yugoslavian M53 drum belt. If you have any need for spare parts and accessories, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.

As noted, each Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belt offered by is an authentic piece of Yugoslavian military surplus. As such, these belts were originally designed for and used by machine gun units in the ground forces of the Jugoslovenska Narodna Armija, also known as the Yugoslav People's Army.

Because these are surplus items, there is no guarantee that each ammunition belt will be in unissued condition. In fact, they are believed to have been issued at some point, though used in a very limited capacity. Despite their supposed issuance, each ammunition belt remains in excellent condition. While each is in perfect working condition, they may show signs of storage wear, but nothing that is detrimental to the function of the belts.

The Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belt features a full steel construction and a blued finish for increased resistance to rust, which has aided in keeping them in their current excellent condition. Each belt is designed to hold 50 rounds of 7.92x57mm Mauser ammunition, more commonly known as 8mm Mauser, but is also compatible with 7.62x51mm NATO ammunition, which is necessary if you plan on using these ammunition belts in conjunction with an MG3 machine gun. As with many firearms, several variations of the original MG42 developed over time, including a Yugoslavian license-built MG42, which was designated the M53, as well as the MG3, which is still in use in Germany today. As such, the Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belt is also compatible with the M53 and the MG3.

Those who own a Yugoslavian M53 machine gun, an MG42 or an MG3 will find the Yugoslavian M53 ammunition belt an indispensable accessory. Grab yours today for just $7.95.

Nice Ammo Belt
Unfortunately, I do not own a M53 or MG42 so I can't attest to how these things work for live fire purposes. I bought this ammo belt to sew onto a pistol belt so I could wear a band of bullets around my waist like Rambo or some African warlord. I stitched this thing onto an old Belgian pistol belt made out of the cotton webbing (easier to stitch than thick nylon) and used a set of old USGI M-1956 webbing "H Style" suspenders to hold the rig up. Then I filled it up with 50 rounds of brass 7.62 NATO. Looks awesome. Now I just need some child soldiers and a diamond mine to "expropriate". Belt was rust free. Only gave it 4 stars because one of the half clamps on a link that holds the round in place was missing, but it still held it in place regardless.
