Polish Web hangers on eBay

Post by RPBCPS » Sat Nov 16, 2019 2:36 pm

If anyone is interested in adding a Polish web Molle hanger, posted by Mike in the ‘Polish AKM 6H4 Type II Hangers for Molle LBE’ thread, there are a couple on eBay at the moment, I have just ordered one for myself.

Merci Ilian,
That is interesting, I learnt a long time ago that, 'the ability to survive, depends on the ability to adapt'. LOL!

I have the hanger and have handled the Polish Y-strap. The hanger is a purpose made unit that is based on the matrial from the Y-strap as far as I can tell, not cut off of a Y-strap assembly.

Martin,

I'm afraid I have to agree with ilian. I have closely examined my hanger and the Y strap. It is obvious that it has been cut off the right side of the Y strap about 1/2 inch above the leather hilt loop. The lower part has been folded up and stitched at two places above and below the hilt loop. The stitching is somewhat crude, different colored thread, the edges not well aligned and the fabric has not been heat sealed where cut. The separate buckle and cross strap most probably from the left side of the Y strap. It may have been made to use with Molle gear or it may be just a fantasy collectors item.

As a side note, I spent a long time with the one I received trying to make it fit. I took it all apart and tried to make it attach to the bayonet and scabbard. Not really very logical or functional. Talked to a friend in Poland and he said he knew that some guys where making them out of basically worthless surplus new Y straps. Not official, just for fun and make a little money!? More pictures and info under "Poland" heading. Mike

Hey, it seems you aren't the only one. Looks like Martin, illian and I also have one. I know of a lot of other collectors that have one too. Better to have one as an example than miss out on an unusual item. Mike

Good catch guys. I stand corrected.
Mine doesn't have weird stitching. The stitching looks like original but on closer examination the webbing has obviously been cut off of something. When I'm wrong, I'm wrong.

Looks like my luck is favouring me, as the 'Polish Hanger for Molle LBE' that I ordered, failed to arrive.
So the other day I sent the seller an email and today he has issued a full refund for the MIA hanger, so all ends well on that one, and a few more $'s to spend on something else.
