Revolver Cartridge Box

Our quality reproduction cartridge box is double walled with double belt-loops. Prior to the Civil War the Army introduced a new pistol cartridge box. This might be worn by officers or enlisted men armed with pistols. Unlike their infantry counter parts cavalry troopers carried two cartridge boxes. One was for carbine and the other for the pistol ammunition. An additional issue for the mounted soldier was how to wear the box so as not to be in the way while seated on a horse. Therefore, the box was generally worn in the back, but moved around to the front while in use.
Made from Hermann Oak 5/6oz. Leather, cotton thread and hand-stitched construction. Made by our Master Leathersmith in Gettysburg, PA.
This item is made to order and may take 2-3 weeks to make!
