M1919 Double Magazine Pouch

Recommended Posts

Once again I took the original drawings posted on this forum and created a pattern. You can download the pattern here:

Here are photos of how they came out. For shooting Wild Bunch matches I made 3 of the double mag pouches. Instead of a one-piece belt loop and cover I made them separate so I could detach the cover for competition. The cover attaches to the top of the belt loop with snaps. The actual pouch completely covers the magazine; not great if you are trying to change magazines under the clock. SASS rules state that at least 2-inches of the magazine needs to be covered so I place a block of wood in the pouch to hold up the magazines. The brass standoff for the center snap I milled with my CNC mill, but Will Gormley's (sp?) pattern uses two snaps. I wanted mine to be military correct for extra style points. The original military specs called for 5-6 ounce leather but I used 3 ounce for the pouch and cover.

Here is a photo of my complete Wild Bunch rig. I milled the buckle out of 1/4-inch flat brass bar stock. If you look closely you can see my loading strip tucked under the M1912 holster hanger. This loading strip holds ten .45 LC cartridges and six 12ga. shot shells which I carry to the loading table along with my long guns. My uniform shirt pocket holds the first loaded magazine which I load into my 1911 .45 at the loading table, and I have the 5 blued spare magazines ready in the pouches. The stainless steel magazine is the "Barney" mag. It holds only one round in case I drop a live round when clearing a jam. I can load this magazine, shoot the single round, have the slide lock back, then I'm ready to reload or stage the empty gun.

Anyway, thanks for looking at my work and enjoy the pattern.

As stated in the topic I milled the buckle out of 1/4 inch flat bar stock. I have a small CNC mill at home.
