    It appears to be a US Colt .45 M1923 Magazine pouch modified by stretching the flap with Jigsaw camo material.
    still retains the press stud for the Colt Belt.

    I am using it to hold two 20 Round extended HiPower Magazines.
    I don't know that this is why this kit was modified, It is just my guess because they seem to fit.

    This is a real mystery - the only clue might be to guess at the vintage of the jigsaw cloth, as that would tell us the earliest point at which this might have been done.
