Can anyone tell me how accurate the Ace 1956ammo pouches are? They look a bit to small compared to pictures I've seen on the web plus to me they don't look square enough

I'm not sure they're 100% accurate but they're definitely pretty decent.

You could fix the square shape by diluting some white glue, hitting 'em with some starch, or something to give the material some stiffness, then wet-shaping them.

Here's the original, albeit a 2nd pattern.

Here's the Ace one.

I quite like BattleGear Toys' pouch set.
Just missing a drain hole in the bottom.

The M1956 (canvas with the strap) pouches came in two different sizes. Early in the war they were longer, sized to hold a couple of M-14 magazines (there were two distinct versions of those), later in the war they were shortened to the dimensions of the 20 round M-16 magazines (they could hold three or four of them, I think). The pouches that came with the ACE Hamburger Hill figure is the later war shortened version.
