While not on their website yet, WPG now has blue Cavalry Krag Mills belts on E-bay, as well as a 100 round single row bandoleer.

Hi Drydock

So, I've been through the books and don't remember seeing the Bandolier.  Who used it?  I was considering making one for the 1886 in 45-70, but that would a bandit look in in leather.

Thanks

According to Dorsey's "American Military Belts and Related equipments"  (Dixie gun works Pioneer press)  This bandolier was developed during the SA war, in response to a way to carry more ammunition without the restriction of the double row waist belt.  (Easily carried, and easily discarded in an emergency)  I believe, but cannot prove, that it was used in the later Puerto Rican campaign, and saw most of its use in the Phillipines, until replaced by the 1912 pocket bandolier.  It could certianly be used for .45-70, but saw most of its use with .30-40.
