ANH Jawa Bandoliers

For the bandoliers, I used a British P-1903 bandolier across my chest and a Swedish Mauser bandolier around my waist.  Both are originals from WWI era!

These where used by the British during WWI and WWII.

I found mine on eBay and it’s an original from WWI. You can still find these on eBay usually for around $100. But sometimes you can snag one for around the $50 mark. Search terms I used where: leather ammo belt. Leather bandolier, British p-1903.

You can find Patterns to make your own p1903 bandolier. But I prefer to use the originals since they come “weathered” and are a part of history .I’d recommend buying an original or a reproduction. For the most part, fan made ones, don’t look right.

Alternatively, you can buy a reproduction from IMA and then weather it yourself.They currently sell for $49.95 and are one of the best reproductions you can buy. They occasionally get originals in. Their site is http://www.ima-usa.com/british-p-1903-leather-five-pocket-bandolier.html

Swedish Mauser Bandolier

This bandolier was used by the Swedish during WWI and WWII.

I found mine on ebay and it’s an original from WWI. You can still find these on ebay usually for around $100. But sometimes you can snag one for around the $50 mark. Search terms I used where: leather ammo belt. Leather bandolier, Swedish bandolier. Sometimes doing searches on google you can find other sites that sell these.

I prefer to use the originals since they come “weathered” and are a part of history. As far as I know there aren’t any patterns out there to make these yourself.

I like that the pockets on the bandolier “expand”. I can put my Akter voice amp in one of the pockets.
