Thank's RSR. I was not sure but someone had said in the Q & A section of the Ad that it was  QUOTE; This is a barrel pouch for a Uk59 Light MG.

No, it definitely is not drop bag for Sa vz. 58.
See real drop bags:







The front part of pouch Sa vz. 58 must be flat, not rounded.

I've only seen bags like igrlik's with the tan front, but with more than a quick glance that is in fact the UK 59 barrel pouch.   Authentic czech milsurp but not vz58.

This was the bag type of I was thinking of when looking (note the flaps): http://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Issued-Paratrooper-Jump-Case-For-Folding-Stock-Version-Vz-58-Unused-/301748484771

And can't find a good pic of the one I saw before, but you can see similar in this book here, 5th pic: http://www.ebay.com/itm/291413475166

Does anyone have a vz59 belt loader they don't need or know where I can find one?
