40mm Grenade pouch

I picked this pouch up today and wanted to get your opinion on it. It is marked on two of the retaining straps but I can read all of the numbers. It doesnt have a nsn but some mfn and number. Is this a issue piece or aftermarket or made for surplus market type gear.

this is the whole set (not mine). Made in 1996


the pouches on the vest are attached with slide keepers.


this is a photo of the lbv being worn (is different from a standard one), with aftermarket pouches

1st Reconnaissance Battalion, 1st Marine Division



the photo was took 22 july 2004 in al asad, iraq, just prior the first USMC HAHO combat jump. (Read the article "Marine jump into history" or something like that)
