Guys:

I ran across a guy selling these pouches (not on Ebay) identified as "Case, Carrying" with a drawing number of 7160198. It looks somewhat like the grenade launcher sight case. Can anyone tell me what this case is for, and if it is legit USMC issue? I have never seen one before and have my doubts.

Thanks.

Charlie

Here is a pic of the reverse side.

If this is legit I will pass along the info to anyone else who might want one as I think he has several.

Yes, from the front pic, i thought theyve just stamped USMC onto a sight case to put the price up, but from the rear view ( hooks ) it's a repro . ;)

Definatley looks bogus to me, a fantasy item with added "pazazz" of being USMC and i have not seen one before and with Flags of our Fathers just coming out.

Looks dodgy to me Charlie

Actually that is a USMC issued pouch. It was used to carry the M15-rifle grenade sight for the M14 rifle. I have the pouch, as well as the sight that came with it and the instructions for the sight.

Here is a website with a picture of the pouch, as well as some additional information. Apparently Marines in Vietnam used the pouch to carry additional bandages. I have not seen the "USMC" on the pouch, but doesn't mean it wasn't issued that way.
