At The Front makes a repro without the snap on it just for this.

Exactly. And as far as I know we aren't in a war using carbines. The pouch doesn't fit very well, and is really awkward when shooting. I really don't think anyone has to worry about carrying extra ammo for a patrol in the field. Yeah, I know, some dudes think it looks cool. Better yet, get the proper belt and put the pouch where it belongs.

I absolutely agree. I went on a mission to find a stock pouch and had to try several before finding one that fit over the stock. Getting two magazines into the pouch when on the stock was a hassle and I suppose getting them out of the pouch would be just as difficult. Putting that pouch on, made a handy wonderfully balanced carbine into a baseball bat. It changed everything about the weapon, and everything I didn't like. Do you want a lightweight, handy balanced rifle or a club? If I was to use the carbine for a SHF weapon, I'd have several magazines on my person in trouser pockets or whatever, I wouldn't want to be calling "King's X" while I tried to get a magazine out of a lousy fit stock pouch.

There is no reason to put a magazine pouch on a carbine stock.

When I got the NOS WWII pouch I use, it was tight to slide it back far enough, and mags were tight slide in and to remove.
But, after that pouch was on the carbine with two mags in it for a while, it loosened up nicely.
Yes, it does change the balance of the carbine, no argument there...
But I wanted to try using the carbine the way our men did...with the stock pouch.
By the way, I used a piece of the fuzzy half of stick on Velcro over the snap to protect my stock.
