Small Arms Ammunition Case (30-Round Magazine)
The Small Arms Ammunition Case is designed for the 30-round magazine used with the M-16 rifle.
The case is fabricated of nylon duck cloth and webbings with polyester sheet stiffeners in the front, rear, and lid of the case. Each magazine is held in place by means of 3/4-inch (1.91 cm) wide webbing spacers which cross the top of the case. The lid is closed by means of a plastic latch. Grenade-carrying pockets are on each side of the case, which is secured by means of a nylon web strap and metal snap fastener. A tab with a metal eyelet is located at the top back of the case to which the suspenders are attached. The case is attached to the individual equipment belt by keepers with interlocking slides.
