They would have used that most likely only when using the drum magazine for the 1928's (due to the curve, it wouldn't have been as useful as other bags for holding anything else, IMO), and the 1928's were relatively rare compared to the m1/m1a1, which didn't accept the drum. As well, the drums weren't highly regarded, since they rattled and needed winding, so the chances of finding someone in WWII using a drum compatible thompson (1921, 1928, not m1a1) with a drum would be pretty low, therefore the probability of that bag type being used would be low.
To sum it up; it was probably used, but very rarely
The M1928 and M1928A1 saw plenty of action throughout the war from beginning to end in both theaters of the war , in the PTO in the Philippines , Guadalcanal and with Commonwealth troops , in North Africa members of the 82nd AB carried them with the Drum mags for a while , U.K. troops carried them with the drum from France to Greece and afterwards , Greek troops had them while fighting the Italians and then the Germans , French troops had them with the drum , French Commando's had M1928A1s when the landed in Normandy. Both the 50 and 100 round drum where used , but the 50rd drum was more popular. The ammo bags for the 50rd drums where used , i have seen a photo of a British soldier with 2 ammo pouches on his web gear , can't remember which book it was on , i will have to search for that photo but it was a nice set up.
ME NE FREGO. Guns don't kill people , husbands who come home early do. I am here to chew bubble gum and kick ass , and I am all out of bubble gum
This is a bit off topic but it's starting to bug the heck out of me. How do you get the orange tip of the 1928 thompson? Like I said it's starting to not only kill me, but in woodland combat it's giving my position away, thanks.
WWII Airsofter. The child in me was put behind bars a long time ago, thing was... it was on the wrong side.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
