RPD Degtyrarev Pekhotnyi (Infantry) light machine gun
drum magazine carrier, circa 1944. In sturdy khaki canvas with
softer canvas shoulder strap. Measures 11" x 13" x 5". Leather
strap with steel buckle closure. There is faint maker mark on
the inside, appears to be "Factory #16".
Very good to excellent condition. The leather loop on the flap
is still pliable. There are a few smudges on the outside of
the carrier that probably occurred while the carrier was in
storage (the inside is completely clean). Some of the green
paint from shoulder strap buckles and black paint from the
closure buckle transferred to the surrounding canvas as common
to Soviet items manufactured in a rush during the war years.
