I've never had an issue with the snap scratching a stock.

Personally, I don't like the feel of the carbine with a stock pouch installed. It throws everything off balance.

I did have one on a display carbine. I used a 1" adhesive backed felt furniture leg pad. I cut the center out with an Exacto knife so the snap would fit inside the pad. Works great.

There are some nice repro's out there that have the snap already deleted and they are fairly priced. In the past I've found them from a few different places.

Best comment of the afternoon.

I'm looking for a cheapie to try out; if you could point me in one or two good directions for these I'd appreciate it - I'm new to looking for these.

not so cheap anymore it seems..

http://www.gunpartscorp.com/ad/543800.htm

but they were made really great, better than the $10 cheapies I had gotten else where that the mags barely fit in.

you should email and make sure they still delete the back snap.


EDIT, from looking at my email archives, this is the one I went back and bought a few more of.

here's a cheapy you wouldn't mind cutting the snap out of...

http://www.keepshooting.com/m1-carbi...mag-pouch.html

this maybe one of them that was a little tight on the 15rnd mags..

The other above isn't, they were great.

And now with the unsafe act in NY, and limited to 10rnd mags with no more than 7rnds in a mag... these would work fine with the shorter 10rnd mags.

and these were tight too, and the cheapest made.
think I really had to struggle to close it on two USGI mags.
but really cheap.

Check out the repros being sold by worldwarsupply on eBay. They are likely the best quality knock-offs that are being sold right now. The material, weave, and stampings all look very similar to an original 1942 dated pouch that I have. They offer the khaki color as well as an OD color which is similar to OD3 (currently no OD color listed on eBay). The ones at CTD look cheesy and run on the small side like ramit mentioned. Below are photos of their OD sling and pouch installed on my Plainfield.

I just slide a length of wooden tongue depressor between the snap and stock. Rob

couldn't care less about damage from the snap- I sweat the other side of the stock where the Ordnance wheel is.
