    Unknown pouch

    I just got this pouch and I don't what it was used for. There is no tag anywhere I can find. Hopefully you guys can tell me what this one was used for. Thanks for looking.

    Looks to be an early pouch for an MP-5. The date on the buckles looks to be 84. Very early piece and very deireable.

    Thanks for the answers guys. I really don't know much about these items. I would think that a 9mm MP-5 stick mag would fit rather nicely in the pockets. Very Happy

    Made by ABA (American Body Armor). Definitely MP5.

    Hey Chris,

    Nice pouch..Here's a few more and one with the MP5 mags. Neither of these have the ABA label either.

    Here are pics of my American Body Armor MP 5 pouch with label buckles dated 88. Thought they might be good for reference.

    I noticed it was made different after posting. buckles instead of snaps and velcro on flaps and velco on top of pouch and between belt loops on back. and different color of leg strap.
