WWII Belt/Strap Made from Ammo Belt - Great for Steampunk and Costumes

Like this item?

Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.


The warehouse keeps serving up new and unique finds for us. These belts were originally used in the Browning M1919 .30 Cal Machine Gun. Metal links weren't easily manufactured so the military used fabric belt links at different times. When the production of metal links caught up to the demand, the surplus fabric links were converted into belts and straps.

The end of each belt shows the original date. Along the length of the belt are numbers stamped in increments of 25, which show how many bullets the belt held at that point.

These have been in our warehouse since we bought them from the government in the late 40's and are in great condition. They are all original WWII belts and very unique. Use these for your steampunk costume, to strap your saddle bags onto your bike, or just to keep your pants up!

Size: 70" long x 1 1/8" wide
Condition: Unissued/Unused from 1940's
