Anybody have a....

...used, repro, tan, single row Mills Belt in 45-70 that has the loops sewn on not woven in?

Really specific, ain't I?  ;D I need it for a project

General ...

I started a search in my hopelessly disorganized stashes of stuff, but stopped when I remembered that the belt/bandolier I have (or had) was for .303 size cartridges ... or at least that is what I tried to use it for, without success, as it may actually have been a.45-70 item which I got it to try to use for .303 rounds   It was a relatively inexpensive one I bought from somewhere - maybe Coon Creek (?)

(However, it has also occurred to me that I may in fact have brought it as a door prize to a past Muster.)

In any event, as I recall, .303 cases were definitley too loose in the loops, so I quit using it.  Even if the existing loops wouldn't take .45-70 ... they are sewn, and since quite a few of them would need to be unstitched for your project, anyway the others could likely also be taken out and resized to the correct diameter. 

Say the word, if interested, and I'll keep looking ...   ( The price would be right, if I still have it ...)

If you would, please.

I suspect that the loops were 45/70 loops. If not, as you say, I will be modifying the belt from it's current configuration anyway. The main thing I'm interested in is that it NOT be an original, that it is tan/khaki, and that the loops NOT be woven in

That'll probably be what I do if nobody has a used one. I just really hate to start cutting on a brand new one.

Can't find the one I thought I had ... I think I may have brought it along as a door prize at a previous Muster ...

Thank you for looking. I remember somebody donating one for the door prize table 2 years ago.

I might just have what you want.  Tan and the loops are sewn on.
