Vinyl Magazine Bag?

Recommended Posts

Hey gang,


This came in a large lot on military items I just purchased.


What is this clear, vinyl bag used for? I'm assuming it's military with what looks like a M-16 bullet and Vietnamese instructions.




Thank you in advance for your help.

The bag contained a rifle magazine for the M-16. The thought behind it was that since the troops typically just threw these away anyway, why not put a "Chieu Hoi" (Surrender) message on them? They were made in the millions though, and lots have survived. It's a neat piece though.


After having a double bypass this past year, it's time to downsize and pass along much of my 'stuff'. I've had my fun, now it is someone elses turn.

Hi, here are photos of these bags. The shorter two are for 20rd magazines, dated 1970 and the bigger one is for 30rd magazine, dated 1980.

My friend´s co-worker is from Vietnam so I asked him for translation. Here is: Help, who wants to meet again parents, husband, wife or children, restore democracy and remove communism regime.
