if you mean just the regular butt stock pouch that goes on a carbine that holds two 15 round magazines ,then they are very easy to find on eBay.hth

For info here search for Pocket, Magazine
make sure the search includes all forums
Go to the the top of the forum and select forum home.
That will help insure the search covers all subforums.
Under key words enter pocket, and or magazine pocket or magazine pouch.

You find collectors have categorized them by 'Types', and there are also some differences between services and where they were made.

War Baby II and Riesch's book have some info.  Also CCNL 261 and 262 (and several others) have some discussion and list of mfgs for Type 1 (stock) and Type 2 (belt) pouches, or the official nomenclature is pocket. Type 1 (Stock) pouches are actually made for a pistol belt but were later figured out by GIs they would slide onto the M1 carbine stock.  Hence stock pouch.  They have the snap in the near center of the wide loop to attach them to the belt.  You will find some with the snap cut out to not scratch up the stock.   Type 2 pouches have the two belt loops.    

Is there something more specific you're looking for?
