Pistol Belt

Postby Waldiebeast » Mon Sep 05, 2011 12:06 pm

Hey there, I was just wondering if this pistol belt would be acceptable as a ww2 belt? I'm getting a garand belt around chrimbo and this is basically just temporary. Can anyone tell me anything about it?

It's a repro pistol belt.

Anything else you want to know?

Yeah it was just from a surplus store but I was wondering if it was like the ones used in ww2? Thanks :)

Looks reasonably accurate to me. ;)

They look exactly the same, although the build quality will be far superior on an original belt.

Isn't the middle eyelet on a 40s style belt smaller than the outer two? Looks like a Nam style belt, but when you have all your bits hooked on it, no body is going to care :)
