London Bridge LBT 1st Gen USMC Recon 11rd Shotgun Ammo Pouch

LBT 11rd Shotgun Ammo Pouch
Part # XM 7653

These shotgun pouches are the very first pouches made by London Bridge Trading. These were originally designed by the owner, Mr. Doug McDougal, he was making these small pouches to sell at gun shows and one day a Recon Marine saw them and asked to make a small batch of them for the Recon unit down in Camp Lejeune, NC. The design of the pouch only allows for eleven rounds. In this pouch the past owner has removed the elastic loops for the rounds.

The front of these pouches are marked with "USMC" and you can just make out the small "US**" on the front. The interior had a LBT manufacturer stamp; which on this pouch is almost unreadable. 

USMC Shotgun ammo pouch developed by London Bridge Trading Company for use with the F.A.S.T. (Fleet Anti-Terrorism Security Team). This is an 11-round Nylon pouch with USMC on flap and was assigned Part # XM 7653. This is a very rare pouch. Pouch includes copies of the correspondence with the President of the company who developed it.
