NCSHP has a chin-up bar with "PULL HERE" printed on it.

 I wouldn't doubt it.  But there does seem to be an awful lot of writing back there.

I have a chinese ak chest harness I recovered personally in northern iraq that has the oklahoma state seal on all the snaps.

God only knows what you might find on a chinese chest rig.

Did it look like it or was it the actual seal?  I bet you there's a story behind that one.

Quoted:
I believe they have many different sayings on the back, Kinda like Bazooka Joe gum......

Virginity like bubble, one prick, all gone.

Man who run in front of car get tired.

Man who run behind car get exhausted.

Man with hand in pocket feel cocky all day.

Foolish man give wife grand piano, wise man give wife upright organ.

Man who walk through airport turnstile sideways going to Bangkok.

Man with one chopstick go hungry.

Man who scratch ass should not bite fingernails.

Man who eat many prunes get good run for money.

Baseball is wrong: man with four balls cannot walk.


Panties not best thing on earth but next to best thing on earth.

War does not determine who is right, war determine who is left.

Wife who put husband in doghouse soon find him in cat house.

Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night.

It take many nails to build crib, but one screw to fill it.

Man who drive like hell, bound to get there.

Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs.

....and my personal favorite!
Crowded elevator smell different to midget



.....goodnight folks!...be sure to catch my other shows, and be sure to tip the wait staff!



You are nuts!

Do the snaps look like these?



I just sold one on the EE.

I am curious about the stamps, too.

Here's the stamp on my ChiCom chest pouch (not the Iraqi one with the star snaps- this one has regular wooden toggles).

It's faint, so I've circled the non-Chinese characters and guessed at their meanings.

The writing shown in the pic above is mostly illegible so I took a picture of mine which shows a clearer Chinese writing:



Here's the literal translation:

Type Fifty Six 7.62 Submachinegun
Magazine Pouch (bag)
3524 Seventy Six Year (1976) Manufacture


Notice that an automatic rifle is by definition a "submachinegun" as far as the Chinese are concerned.

The date and number format on yours is different in that it shows the year and the factory code, whereas mine shows a 4 digit number(serial number?) followed by the year manufactured.

Hope this helps, now we may all sleep at night.

Ok, if youw want to be that ANAL and break down character by character, then it's:

AMMO CLIP POUCH

But if you combine "ammo" and "clip", it becomes a term that basically means "magazine".

So for our purpose, saying "magazine pouch" is appropriate and more understandable. Don't you think?

besides, "bullet pouch" is wrong either way, you forgot the "clip" part.

Darkest2000 and 2ND-GUNMAN,

Thank you.

Where did you learn to read Chinese?  Are you Chinese?

I'll try to take a pic of my pouches and post them for translation if you don't mind.

I kind of guessed what they might mean, but there is nothing like having it translated!

Glad I could help. I was born here but my parents are from Taiwan.  I also lived in Taiwan for 11 years and received my first half of primary education there.

Not rare, but not everywhere, either.  I think they're one of the best bargains in AK accessories and a very neat design, too.

OK as a person of Asian heritage I can translate those stamps on the mag pouches.

"Can you believe the roundeyes are going to pay us $25 for this pouch that we made for $.20? "

It says, "Made in Japan."

Thank you very much! Cool to know what is one these.

I will try to find the other one I have its older and has less but larger characters if I remember right.

I have one the same color as the guy in the pic.  No writing on back.  Was supposed to be  Chinese made, sterilized for export, Vietman era.  I paid 40.00 for mine.  I have seen the same type (light khaki) for 60 - 70 on the Vietnam militaria websites.
