East German mag pouches from Gun Parts Corp
 
$4 and some change per pouch, so I jumped on it and bought 4. Took a couple weeks to receive them, but my post office seems half retarded at times. The good news: they're in good shape over all. Little to no rust on the metal parts. Bad news, all 4 of mine had white mold on them. Soaked in white vinegar over night, scrubbed the mold away with a tooth brush, then submerged in boiling water. That should have killed the mold spores I think. Gonna run them through the washer, romove what rust is on the metal parts. Not sure what these usually run, but for $4 I don't think doing a little clean up is a bad deal.

The E German pouches are well made but are the oddballs of the AK pouch world

Why is that? I just threw one on an order to keep a few mags in my truck.

They are built a little bit different, since they use their own style cleaning kit, and have no provision for the oil bottle (they have a small one in the kit) but are otherwise very high quality. That and the neat unique camo pattern.

My favorite pouch of all the surplus pouches is hands down the EG 74 style, grab an EG pack with straps, an EG belt, and a pair of EG pouches and you have a matching rig with all surplus parts that is very nicely made and cheap.

I've ordered from them before and most of the time the order was wrong or the pouches were trash.

Ya these are like $8-12 shipped off Ebay from sellers with 100% rating.

OP, can you vouch for the condition of these?

BigBlue&Goldie 11-01-2016 12:53 PM

They are like $5 from What A Country, so I took the gamble.

Lingwendil 11-01-2016 04:12 PM

Or just buy known good ones from TP, I've bought a ton of pouches from him and have always been more than pleased with quality and service...

The color scheme along with the straps on the East German pouches is noticably different than the normal solid color/ strap design found on almost all other AK pouches.

Even so Numrich has always had great prices on them

I still have one to hold my 2 Bakelite 74 mags. The Russian Bulgarian Romy Polish Hungarian pouches etc all seem to fit more of the recognizable designs that are coveted

I ordered a drum case from them some years ago. It was not surplus as described but rotted garbage. Glad to hear you had a better experience. I buy all my pouches now thru the MP.

There are at least 6 or 7 patterns of DDR pouches. Often sold for $2 a pop or came with a mag purchase. Some are two cell and some 4 and 7.62 vs 5.45 or 5.56.

Still see them at Gun Shows in the odd ball bins etc.

Jeepfan 04-21-2017 01:49 AM

Not a bad deal. I've lucked out and received some okay ones from them.

However, I've gotten better ones from private sellers like TP.

I don't know what it is about Strichtarn but I love picking up any item in that pattern.
