Viet Nam Era Ammo Bandoleers

“May Madness” Greetings to all you Shooters, Collectors, Gamers and the like

My sincere apologies for not writing a Blog for the last few weeks, but (in my defense) I have just got back from a trip abroad, (Australia) having a complete break from everything that sounds and smells like WORK !!! and in my ambling round the countryside I came across a very interesting shop that sold everything from a bag of lollies to nuts & bolts to Mil Surp Gear. Whoo Hoo, I’m in my element now!!!

I could have bought enough to fill a container, (So much Neat Stuff………..So Little Space) But as I only had a small amount of space left in my already bulging suitcase I had to keep my hands firmly in my pockets. I did manage to score some very nice and very collectable, Viet Nam Era, .223 Stripper Clip, US Cloth Bandoleers ~ G44. There used to be heaps of this sort of stuff around 20 odd years ago but not so much these days. The GOOD stuff is getting harder and harder to find now.

For all you Shooters out there that like to shoot the 5.56×45 or .223 round, you are going to love these Genuine Ammo Bandoleers as they are really the “Bee’s Knee’s”for carting your excess ammo around. It doesn’t matter if you are just going to the farm for a “Plinking” session, going to the range for a tournament or going to Odessa to sort out the Russians, these Viet Nam Ammo Bandoleers are one of the most comfortable ways for carrying any ammo that is over and above your normal load-out.

They are made of O.D. Green canvas Mil-Spec material each with 7 pockets that will take 2 x 10rd Stripper Clips per pocket or 1 x 20rd M16 mag per pocket, making a total of 140 rounds per bandoleer. If you strap on 2 x bandoleers, criss-crossed across your chest or back you can carry an extra 280 rounds over and above what you would normally carry………………………Now that’s a serious ‘Warrior War Load”

They are all marked with Military Markings :- 5.56MM, BALL M193, 10RD CLIPS, REPACK MF 7/71, LOT CIS 2/69……………………Some of the dates do vari a little bit. I have a limited supply of these fine collectables so it is 1st in 1st served.

Happy collecting………………………………………The “Quartermaster”


M16 Bandoleer
