Developed in 1942, the German Sturmgewehr 44, or StG, represented a new direction in small arms that would give rise to the modern assault rifle. The Sturmgewehr, or "storm rifle" was chambered for the smaller 7.92x33mm Kurz cartridge instead of the standard German 7.92x57mm rifle round, which allowed it to be lighter, more maneuverable and produce less recoil. The result was a versatile platform that bridged the gap between submachine gun and full-size battle rifle, offering controllable firepower at close range without compromising accuracy and power at intermediate ranges.
This Reproduction German Military WWII Sturmgewehr 44 Mag Pouch is an exact replica of the pouches carried by German infantrymen to feed their StG. It holds six 30-rd. magazines and can accommodate mags for a variety of firearms using cartridges similar to the StG44.
