In the US Army, soldiers issued with a M1911A1 pistol normally carried a pouch with two spare magazines, giving them 21 rounds in all, but such separate pouches were generally not used by German soldiers in WWII AFAIK, although they did exist.

I have to laugh when I see the FN 9mms advertised at gun shows or on the gun selling websites as having German proof marks. To a certain ind of collector they may be desirable, but anyone who knows anything about the history of Fabrique Nationale knows the wartime 9mm made under German occupation were the worst ever made, because the workers were sabotaging them with inferior faulty parts.
