Expect to pay a fortune for original tube carriers especialy the first pattern that had the webb strapping, thats if yo can find any. It would be better to copy and make your own. The only problem you may have is reproducing the metal end caps which the webbing straps going through. The later version which were in a square metal frame carrier with three seperate tubes were used around 1945.
